Added Hysteresis Enhances DC-DC Converter Performance (.PDF Download)

Today’s dc-dc converters use an enable pin to control the design conditions at which the power supply turns on and off. However, your dc-dc converter may not have this “enable hysteresis” control, or the internal hysteresis value may be too small. It is possible to add an adjustable hysteresis to your dc-dc converter’s enable signal, though. You can replicate this technique by using Excel spreadsheet calculations, Texas Instruments (TI) TINA-TI software simulations,
