The LT8609S design reduces EMI/EMC emissions due to very well controlled switching edges, its internal construction with an integral ground plane and the use of copper pillars in lieu of bond wires. This improved EMI/EMC performance is not sensitive to board layout, simplifying design and reducing risk even when using two-layer PC boards.

LTC3636 and LTC3636-1 are high efficiency, 4 MHz synchronous dual output buck regulators that incorporate a constant frequency/controlled on-time, current mode control scheme with phase lockable switching frequency. Their design architecture reduces conducted and radiated emissions.

Many applications require positive and negative supply voltages, with only one voltage requiring tight regulation. This Design Idea describes a dual-output, hybrid SEPIC–Ćuk converter whose positive output voltage can be lesser or greater than the input voltage. The unregulated negative output is a mirrored replica of the positive output.

The LT8641 is a monolithic, constant frequency, current mode synchronous (external schottky diode is not necessary) step-down switching regulator. Its 3V to 65V input voltage range makes it ideal for 12V or 24V automotive and industrial applications. It delivers up to 3.5A of continuous output current and peak loads of 5A. Output voltages can be set in 0.81 to 64V range. [via]

Measuring 2.5×2.0×1.0mm, the newly‐developed XCL102/XCL103 series of step‐up micro DC/DC converters is designed with built‐in inductors and control ICs. By Julien Happich @ edn-europe.com:
The use of built‐in inductors also allows PCB layouts to be simplified, minimizing unwanted radiation noise and operational trouble. The input voltage can be selected from 0.65V (operation hold voltage) to 6.0V, and the output voltage from 2.2V to 5.5V

The circuit presented here is based on LM317. Generally, LM317 is known as a linear regulator IC, but here the circuit operates as a switching regulator. This circuit operates by transferring energy
from the input to the output by using a solid state switch. Power Efficiency of a switching regulator is much higher than the linear regulators. The input voltage for this circuit is 8V-35V and it can produce the output of 1.8V to 32V, that can be varied by using potentiometer R3.
- Input(V): 8VDC to 35VDC
- Output(V): 1.8VDC to 32VDC
- Output load: 3A
- PCB:68mm X 50mm

LTC3897 is a multiphase synchronous boost DC/DC controller with input surge stopper and ideal-diode controller. The boost controller drives two N-channel power MOSFET stages out-of-phase to reduce input and output capacitor requirements, enabling the use of smaller inductors versus the single-phase equivalent. By Graham Prophet @ edn-europe.com:
Synchronous rectification increases efficiency, reduces power loss and eases thermal requirements. The input surge stopper, with adjustable clamp voltage, controls the gate of an external N-channel MOSFET to protect against high input voltage transients of greater than 100V and provides inrush current control, overcurrent protection and output disconnect. The integrated ideal diode controller drives another N-channel MOSFET for reverse input voltage protection and voltage holdup or peak detection.
