This application note describes how to measure the control loop stability of switch-mode power supplies to get the best performance and confidence of the design. It will explain the main measurement concept and will guide the user during the measurements. Wherever possible, a hint is given where the user should pay attention to it to avoid weak measurements.

The R&S buck converter reference board was designed in collaboration with Texas Instruments and is used to illustrate the closed loop measurement in a practical manner.

Key Learning Points:

  • How to measure control loop stability of switch-mode power supplies
  • Tips and tricks to avoid weak measurements
  • Oscilloscope portfolio from Rohde & Schwarz
