App note: Basic switching-regulator-layout techniques


Here’s an application note from Maxim on basic switching-regulator-layout techniques:

This article addresses some of the fundamentals of laying out a switching-regulator board. Although it focuses on a step-up switching-regulator, the concepts it covers are also useful when working with other types of switching regulators. The article talks about the importance of ground schemes, component placement, reducing noise interference, and reducing stray capacitance and inductance.
