When looking at the Texas Instruments Webench designer, one of the columns reads

Vout-pp

What does this mean?

It's a little bit hard to tell without more context, but usually pp stands for peak-to-peak. Does this fit your context? –  Nick Alexeev Jan 16 '13 at 20:55
This is to do with buck converters, so I'm wondering if it's to do with dropout voltage or voltage ripple? –  josef.van.niekerk Jan 16 '13 at 20:57

## 1 Answer

Output Ripple Voltage, peak to peak.

This is the expected ripple the proposed design would produce, at the rated parameters of operation. Less is better, all else being equal.
