Digital control technique is becoming an attractive alternative for high-frequency switching mode power supply (SMPS). This paper introduces a fully synthesizable digital sliding-mode (SM) controller for high-frequency dc/dc SMPS. The proposed SM controller is associated with a digital pulsewidth modulation (DPWM) block to operate at constant and high switching frequency compared to already published approaches. The digital SM controller is experimentally validated by means of field-programmable gate array in a 4-MHz step-down converter with 10-bit analog-to-digital conversion (ADC) and 11-bit DPWM. Measured dynamic performances are superior to conventional digital controllers for dc/dc SMPS.
