Current-sensing is used widely in smart power chips, especially in DC/DC converter for voltage regulator modules (VRM), implemented with interleaved synchronous rectifier buck converters. The interleaved technique main difficulty is due to its current-sharing control between the several modules. Besides, if the used control technique is current-mode type, it is necessary create a ramp signal proportional to current on the inductor. In this paper, a lossless current-sensing method, solving the major disadvantages of the current-mode control and implementing a current-sharing technique, is proposed. This innovative technique is tested in a two-module interleaved buck converter.
