the Buck converter
Consider the MTFB (Mean Time Between Failures) of the buck converter and how long the buck converter is expected to last. Perhaps a burn in test, of the buck converter under some kind of load, for a few weeks. Most electronics fails during the early stages of operation.
Perhaps monitoring the output voltage of the buck converter with an A to D converter and... Naa, this is electronics working at near the speed of light.
The buck converter will, most likely short, at near the speed of light, for a very, very, very few moments before it opens up to let the magic smoke seep out.
Without knowing why you are deleting my postings, I will not know how...
