The pros and cons of spread‐spectrum implementation methods in buck regulators

Authored by Sam Jaffe, Applications engineer, this article describes the process adopted by chip designers to achieve spread spectrum in a buck converter and how it can be extended to other systems.

Design considerations for isolated current sensing

Authored by Alex Smith, Applications engineer, this article covers each of these decisions in detail to help select an isolated amplifier best suited to a specific system.

Clutter‐free power supplies for RF converters in radar applications (Part 1) 

Authored by Rob Reeder and Neeraj Gill, this first installment of a two-part series describes what happens when noise couples onto the ADC’s supply, how it might couple through the ADC’s circuitry.
