With the push for integration, a slew of modern switching power management circuits are operating at higher switching frequencies in order to reduce passive filter sizes. But while these switching regulators provide power conversion at high efficiencies, their output is prone to ripples due to the inherent switching behavior. These switching regulators use linear-low dropout regulators (LDOs) downstream to provide clean supplies. Typically, these LDOs have good power supply rejection (PSR) at lower frequencies but this degrades at higher frequencies.
