An output voltage ripple aware design of different voltage ramp signal of voltage-mode CCM random frequency buck converter for conductive EMI reduction is presented. A mathematical analysis has been carried out to model the output voltage ripple of random switching converter. Simulations of the converter have been undertaken and measured results from the converter fabricated with a standard 0.35 μm CMOS process verify the proposed design approach. From experimental results, a carefully designed ramp can reduce the output voltage ripple by more than 8 times without significant influence on the inductor current spectrum spread and any increment on the output filtering inductance and capacitance comparing to the conventional design.
