TPS54332: EMI/EMC Radiation Issue

Part Number: TPS54332

Hi Team,

I am using TPS54332 in our design and during certification we found we have radiation from TPS54332. I used RC snubber circuit of different value and checked on multiple option but still no improvement.

Layout is also as per guidelines. When using near field probe near Ic then we have  switching frequency noise of 1MHz and lot of harmonics  are there.

Please refer below schematic. Let me know how can we take care of this immediately.

Best Regards

  • Hi,

    Please re-attach the schematic and layout files, I can't see it.

    Hi Shawn,

    Please find attached schematic in pdf format. and layout in PNG format of both Ic.

    Hi,

    The switching noise can't be filtered by RC snubber, you can add input EMI filter to solve this issue.

    Hi,

    1MHz is the switching frequency, of cause you can see this noise.

    Are you considering

    What is the frequency which is over the EMI limit? How do you locate the issue is related to TPS54332?

    This has been observed in both conducted and radiated. Radiation it is more and its getting fail.

    Radiation EMI is tested from 30MHZ to 1GHz and I  tested with near field probe in house from  31MHz to 61MHz with RC snubber circuit.

    I can see easily there is radiation on Switcher IC  body and even with multiple RC  combination it is still there.

    It is getting controlled after adding copper tape (Shield) on Switcher area. Please find attached image of without any modification radiation pattern, with shield radiation pattern.

    You can see difference easily.

    Hi,

    There is no many methods which can filter the switching frequency, from my experience:

    1. use shield inductor

    2. optimize the layout, reduce the copper area of SW

    3. add a shielding case (you have checked this method)

    Hi Shawn,

    Thanks for update. Just for information, in our design we are already using Shielded inductor. I never seen this much radiation from buck converter body itself in my past experience.

    This is my first time when i have seen this.

    Best Regards
