  • Author: Sanjay Havanur
The parasitic inductances cannot be eliminated altogether in a practical circuit. It may not easy to do an ideal layout in a large and complex system such as a computer motherboard. In these situations a practical solution to the ringing issue is a snubber across the phase node to ground. Here we will consider the simple RC snubber and describe how to design one for optimum performance.
