Current Sharing Measurements in Multi-Phase Switch Mode DC-DC Converters

This paper, presented at EDI CON USA 2017, demonstrates the use of a special probe tip utilized to convert a differential measurement of inductor voltage to a measurement of inductor current. It shows the connection and calibration considerations in the measurement of inductor current, including the digital signal processing algorithms required to compensate for the components in the power supply and the probe tip. It also explains current sharing measurements made in the time and frequency domain using a transient current generator.
