App note: Reducing acoustic noise in PWM controlled fans

Saturday, September 8th, 2012

Microchip describes techniques to reduce acoustic noise in pulse width modulator controlled fans. One solution is to use an RC filter to decrease the slew-rate of the PWM pulses. Fan speed control extends fan service life and decreases airflow noise and average fan current. The most efficient way to implement...
