The 5 Minute Method for Stabilizing Any Control Loop

By Steve Sandler

Poor control loop stability results in degraded power supply rejection ratio, transient response, output noise, and, for mixed signal circuits, degraded jitter. Datasheet application examples and reference designs do not often include stability information, and measurements often conclude the stability is poor.
