The following presentation will be taking place at Motiv8’s RF & Wireless and LED & Lighting Design Forum, taking place on the 9th of September in Manchester. To view the full programme and register for this FREE event click here

The presentation investigates, with the support of proper tools, the design approach of using a lower inductance solution than the calculated one in a buck converter design, allowing to operate in higher ripple conditions and being in the position to evaluate total losses.

The goal is to find the best compromise inductor(s) among efficiency, fast response, stability and smallest size for the application.

Evaluation of different material inductors (ferrite and composite powder iron) and ambient temperature effects will also be considered.
