Can we say that RC inductor current sense method has the drawback of ground line pollution? We intentionally put a capacitor (along a resitor resistor) between inductor legs.

It is an excellent article. Jerry Deng's point is valid and impact of varying current in a constant voltage environment would add more punch to this basic understanding.

As a slight improvement, it might have been informative to include the specific physical location of the input capacitor described in your article (between the Vin pin of the converter IC/switch transistor and the anode of the switching diode). Great article, Jeff -thanks!

good article. However it assumes constant current on load, most IC actually works at constant voltage with varing current dynamically, any idea?

There is some system bug which is preventing the "enlarge" of Figures 5 and 6 from appearing properly. Here are the direct links for those figures: http://www.eetimes.com/ContentEETimes/Documents/Schweber/C0893/C0893-Figure5.pdf AND http://www.eetimes.com/ContentEETimes/Documents/Schweber/C0893/C0893-Figure6.pdf

Great article, I would like to get a PDF copy of it, but the print link does not seem to work. To add to comment of agk re: winding inductor with low parasitic C, another trick is to have the turns at the ends of the winding (near the connection terminals) spaced further apart compared to turns in the middle of the winding. This is an old trick used by ham-radio builders, and can result is a smaller inductor than would result from spacing all turns the same distance apart, but of course the parasitic C is a bit higher.

@PierreBTOL Loved this article! This other one was also useful in tips for common mode noise: http://www.interpoint.com/product_documents/DC_DC_Converters_Output_Noise.pdf Measurement and Filtering of Output Noise of DC/DC Converters
