DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS
FEATURES DESCRIPTIONS
The NE10 is a single phase and voltage mode controlled
Buck topology. The output can be trimmed in the range
of 0.59Vdc to 5.1Vdc by a resistor from Trim pin to
Ground.
Enable (On/Off)
The converter can be turned ON/OFF by remote control
with positive on/off (ENABLE pin) logic. The converter
DC output is disabled when the signal is driven low
(below 0.3V). This pin is also used as the input turn on
threshold judgment. Its voltage is percent of Input
voltage during floating due to internal connection. So we
do not suggest using an active high signal (higher than
0.8V) to turn on the module because this high level
voltage will disable UVLO function. The module will turn
on when this pin is floating and the input voltage is
higher than the threshold.
The converter can protect itself by entering hiccup mode
against over current and short circuit condition. Also, the
converter will shut down when an over voltage protection
is detected.
The ENABLE (on/off) input allows external circuitry to
put the NE converter into a low power dissipation (sleep)
mode. Positive ENABLE is available as standard. With
the active high function, the output is guaranteed to turn
on if the ENABLE pin is driven above 0.8V. The output
will turn off if the ENABLE pin voltage is pulled below
0.3V.
Undervoltage Lockout
The ENABLE pin is also used as input UVLO function.
Leaving the enable floating, the module will turn on if the
input voltage is higher than the turn-on threshold and
turn off if the input voltage is lower than the turn-off
threshold. The default turn-on voltage is 3.1V with
300mV hysteresis.
The turn-on voltage may be adjusted with a resistor
placed between the “Enable” pin and “Ground” pin. The
equation for calculating the value of this resistor is:
Safety Considerations
It is recommended that the user to provide a very
fast-acting type fuse in the input line for safety. The
output voltage set-point and the output current in the
application could define the amperage rating of the fuse.

FEATURES DESCRIPTIONS (CON.)
Output Voltage Programming
The ENABLE input can be driven in a variety of ways as
shown in Figures 19 and 20. If the ENABLE signal
comes from the primary side of the circuit, the ENABLE
can be driven through either a bipolar signal transistor
(Figure 18).If the enable signal comes from the
secondary side, then an opto-coupler or other isolation
devices must be used to bring the signal across the
voltage isolation (please see Figure 19).
The output voltage of the NE series is trimmable by
connecting an external resistor between the trim pin and
output ground as shown Figure 21 and the typical trim
resistor values are shown in Table 1.

Input Under-Voltage Lockout
The input under-voltage lockout prevents the converter
from being damaged while operating when the input
voltage is too low. The lockout occurs between 2.8V to
3.1V.
Over-Current and Short-Circuit Protection
The NE series modules have non-latching over-current
and short-circuit protection circuitry. When over current
condition occurs, the module goes into the non-latching
hiccup mode. When the over-current condition is
removed, the module will resume normal operation.

Table 1: Typical trim resistor values
An over current condition is detected by measuring the
voltage drop across the MOSFETs. The voltage drop
across the MOSFET is also a function of the MOSFET’s
Rds(on). Rds(on) is affected by temperature, therefore
ambient temperature will affect the current limit inception
point. Please see the electrical characteristics for details
of the OCP function.
The detection of the Rds(on) of MOSFETs also acts as
an over temperature protection since high temperature
will cause the Rds(on) of the MOSFETs to increase,
eventually triggering over-current protection.

FEATURES DESCRIPTIONS (CON.)
Output Capacitance
Voltage Margining Adjustment
There is output capacitor on the NE series modules.
Hence, an external output capacitor is required for stable
operation.
Output voltage margin adjusting can be implemented in
the NE modules by connecting a resistor, R margin-up, from
the Trim pin to the Ground for margining up the output
voltage. Also, the output voltage can be adjusted lower
by connecting a resistor, Rmargin-down, from the Trim pin to
the voltage source Vt. Figure 22 shows the circuit
configuration for output voltage margining adjustment.

THERMAL CONSIDERATION
THERMAL CURVES (NE12S0A0V10)
Thermal management is an important part of the system
design. To ensure proper, reliable operation, sufficient
cooling of the power module is needed over the entire
temperature range of the module. Convection cooling is
usually the dominant mode of heat transfer.
Hence, the choice of equipment to characterize the
thermal performance of the power module is a wind
tunnel.
Thermal Testing Setup
Delta’s DC/DC power modules are characterized in
heated vertical wind tunnels that simulate the thermal
environments encountered in most electronics
equipment. This type of equipment commonly uses
vertically mounted circuit cards in cabinet racks in which
the power modules are mounted.

maximum hot spot temperature is defined at 109℃

The following figure shows the wind tunnel
characterization setup. The power module is mounted
on a test PWB and is vertically positioned within the
wind tunnel. The space between the neighboring PWB
and the top of the power module is constantly kept at
6.35mm (0.25’’).

Heat can be removed by increasing airflow over the
module. To enhance system reliability, the power
module should always be operated below the maximum
operating temperature. If the temperature exceeds the
maximum module temperature, reliability of the unit may
be affected.
