This paper proposes a simple autotuning technique for digitally controlled dc-dc converters. The proposed approach is based on the relay feedback method and introduces perturbations on the output voltage during converter soft-start. By using an iterative procedure, the tuning of proportional-integral-derivative parameters is obtained directly by including the controller in the relay feedback and by adjusting the controller parameters based on the specified phase margin and control loop bandwidth. A nice property of the proposed solution is that output voltage perturbations are introduced while maintaining the relay feedback control on the output voltage. The proposed algorithm is simple, requires small tuning times, and it is compliant with the cost/complexity constraints of integrated digital integrated circuits. Simulation and experimental results of a synchronous buck converter and of a dc-dc boost converter confirm the effectiveness of the proposed solution
