Large supply bouncing due to the fast switching current and parasitic inductance of the supply rail may cause reliability and electromagnetic interference (EMI) problems, especially for ICs with the pulse-width modulation (PWM) technique, such as switching DC-DC converters. In this paper, a new slew-rate controlled (SRC) output stage is proposed to appropriately increase the rise and fall times of the PWM output by combining a feedback capacitor technique and a distributedand- weighted design. Therefore, the supply bouncing during PWM switching can be reduced. The SRC output stage is successfully integrated into a DC-DC converter implemented with a 0.35mm 1P4M 3.3V mixed-signal CMOS process for verification. With an input voltage of 3.3V, an output voltage of 1.8V, a switching frequency of 500 kHz, and a load current range of 700mA, the active area of the converter is 2.3mm2. With a merely 0.035mm2 control circuit for the SRC output stage, the measured supply bouncing of the designed converter can be reduced by 40% and thus the reliability and the EMI can be improved.
