Single GND poured plane for SMPS Circuits
When selecting a switching regulator IC, in addition to availability, cost, part count, performance, and believability of modeling/simulation tools, I also consider if the circuit can be laid out on a single layer ... and more inportantly, with a single, contiguous ground plane (PGND) where the input/output capacitors, IC and feedback/loop conpantens can connect. The plane can be poured over an internal GND layer, but the vias used to connect the local PGND plane to the internal GND plane need to be carefully considered. A single via is great, but output currents may require more. These should be grouped as tightly as feasible. If the IC uses a thermal-pad, the vias can be placed under this pad to help with thermal performance. (However, consult your PCB Assembly CM for DFM concerns!) Location of these vias will also drive undamped/snubbed inductance in the switching node that can lead to ringing affecting you EMC performance.

This approach most resembles that of Example #1, only in a vertical stack rather than co-planar.

Recently, AEye, was demonstrating their LiDAR system at CES in Las Vegas. A man using his new $1,198 Sony camera found that his photographs were damaged after he took pictures of AEye’s LiDAR LASER scanning system
The e-car basic concept is represented by the role of the electronics technology in making the car more comfortable, safe and effectively interacting with the driver. The first characteristic, comfort, is nowadays being dramatically enhanced by the new solution known as Road Noise Control (acronym: RNC) that has been introduced by BOSE during the CES 2019 in Las Vegas
Early microcontrollers had fixed I/O. It may have been possible to connect one of several internal peripherals to the I/O pins, but those pins were restricted and there was never an option of conditioning those outputs
In the not too distant past, if you were seen holding a conversation with a household appliance, you might have run the risk of being committed.
The voltage regulator is a very important part of the power management and the placement of voltage regulator plays an important role in improving the performance.
