Taking place next Tuesday at Motiv8 Forums (FREE to attend) Technical Forum – see website for full details and registration – 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.
