This paper investigates the conducted-noise characteristics of a digitally-controlled randomly-switched dc-dc converter. In order to investigate the effect of the suggested digital controller on the conducted-noise characteristics of a dc-dc converter, three factors have been studied: the field-programmable gate array (FPGA) clock speed, the randomization ratio percentage, and the effect of using a closed loop feedback controller. A field-programmable gate array is much more flexible than analog control circuits, has a lower cost, and can be used for power supply applications. A novel FPGA-based implementation has been suggested for obtaining the experimental validations and realizing the studied concepts. Furthermore, the experimental results have been discussed and design guidelines have been included.
