# SMPS Buck Converter Design (1 of 2) – Video Tutorial

Below is video tutorial about SMPS Buck Converter Design Example Part 1 of 2. Assume that Vin=12 V, Vout=5 V, Iload= 2A, Fsw=400KHz, D=Vin/Vout=0.416, Iripple=0.3 x Iload. Now we can calculate the magnitude of the inductance. Since inductance (L)= (Vin-Vout)x(D/Fsw)/Iripple we get the inductance is 12.12uH.
