Title: Investigation of Power Losses in Synchronous Buck
Keywords: Power losses, synchronous buck dc-dc

Abstract: In this paper a synchronous buck dc-dc converter with Zero Voltage Switching (ZVS) for low power applications is presented and investigated in Cadence with a CMOS 0.35 μm technology. Power losses in the converter’s components are evaluated and analyzed. The results obtained show that the efficiency of the standard switching-mode buck dc-dc converter can be increased by about 3.6 % if ZVS technique is used.
