Product Description
The VI Chip regulator is a very efficient non-isolated
regulator capable of both boosting and bucking a wide
range input voltage. It is specifically designed to provide
a controlled Factorized Bus distribution voltage for
powering downstream VTM Transformer — fast,
efficient, isolated, low noise Point-of-Load (POL)
converters. In combination, PRMs and VTMs form a
complete DC-DC converter subsystem offering all of the
unique benefits of Vicor’s Factorized Power
ArchitectureTM (FPA)TM: high density and efficiency; low
noise operation; architectural flexibility; extremely fast
transient response; and elimination of bulk capacitance
at the Point-of-Load (POL).
In FPA systems, the POL voltage is the product of the
Factorized Bus voltage delivered by the PRM and the
"K-factor" (the fixed voltage transformation ratio) of a
downstream VTM. The PRM controls the Factorized Bus
voltage to provide regulation at the POL. Because VTMs
perform true voltage division and current multiplication,
the Factorized Bus voltage may be set to a value that is
substantially higher than the bus voltages typically
found in "intermediate bus" systems, reducing
distribution losses and enabling use of narrower
distribution bus traces. A PRM-VTM chip set can provide
up to 100 A, or 115 W at a FPA system density of
169 A/in3, or 195 W/in3 — and because the PRM can
be located, or "factorized," remotely from the POL,
these power densities can be effectively doubled.
The PRM described in this data sheet features a unique
"Adaptive Loop" compensation feedback: a single wire
alternative to traditional remote sensing and feedback
loops that enables precise control of an isolated POL
voltage without the need for either a direct connection
to the load or for noise sensitive, bandwidth limiting,
isolation devices in the feedback path.

Overview of Adaptive Loop Compensation
The VI Chip’s bi-directional VC port :
Adaptive Loop compensation, illustrated in Figure 1, contributes to the
bandwidth and speed advantage of Factorized Power. The PRM
monitors its output current and automatically adjusts its output voltage
to compensate for the voltage drop in the output resistance of the
VTM. ROS sets the desired value of the VTM output voltage, Vout; RCD
is set to a value that compensates for the output resistance of the VTM
(which, ideally, is located at the point of load). For selection of ROS and
RCD, refer to Table 1 below or Page 9.

Pin / Control Functions
+In / -In DC Voltage Ports
The VI Chip maximum input voltage should not be exceeded. PRMs
have internal over / undervoltage lockout functions that prevent
operation outside of the specified input range. PRMs will turn on when
the input voltage rises above its undervoltage lockout. If the input
voltage exceeds the overvoltage lockout, PRMs will shut down until the
overvoltage fault clears. PC will toggle indicating an out of bounds
condition.

+Out / -Out Factorized Voltage Output Ports
–OUT
These ports provide the Factorized Bus voltage output. The –Out port is
connected internally to the –In port through a current sense resistor.
The PRM has a maximum power and a maximum current rating and is
protected if either rating is exceeded. Do not short –Out to –In.

The VTM Control (VC) port supplies an initial VCC voltage to
downstream VTMs, enabling the VTMs and synchronizing the rise of
the VTM output voltage to that of the PRM. The VC port also provides
feedback to the PRM to compensate for voltage drop due to the VTM
output resistance. The PRM’s VC port should be connected to the VTM
VC port. A PRM VC port can drive a maximum of two (2) VTM VC ports.

The PRM voltage output is enabled when the PC pin is open circuit
(floating). To disable the PRM output voltage, the PC pin is pulled low.
Open collector optocouplers, transistors, or relays can be used to
control the PC pin. When using multiple PRMs in a high power array,
the PC ports should be tied together to synchronize their turn on.
During an abnormal condition the PC pin will pulse (Fig.12) as the PRM
initiates a restart cycle. This will continue until the abnormal condition
is rectified. The PC should not be used as an auxiliary voltage supply,
nor should it be switched at a rate greater than 1 Hz.

SC – Secondary Control
The load voltage may be controlled by connecting a resistor or voltage
source to the SC port. The slew rate of the output voltage may be
controlled by controlling the rate-of-rise of the voltage at the SC port
(e.g., to limit inrush current into a capacitive load).
SG – Signal Ground
IL – Current Limit Adjust
The PRM has a preset, maximum, current limit set point. The IL port
may be used to reduce the current limit set point to a lower value. See
“adjusting current limit” on page 10.
PR – Parallel Port
The PR port signal, which is proportional to the PRM output power,
supports current sharing of two PRMs. To enable current sharing, PR
ports should be interconnected. Steps should be taken to minimize
coupling noise into the interconnecting bus. Terminate this port with a
10 k equivalent resistance to SG, e.g. 10 k for a single PRM, 20 k each
for 2 PRMs in parallel, 30 k each for 3 PRMs in parallel etc.. Please
consult Vicor Applications Engineering regarding additional
considerations when paralleling more than two PRMs.
VH – Auxiliary Voltage
VH is a gated (e.g. mirrors PC), non-isolated, nominally 9 Volt,
regulated DC voltage (see “Auxiliary Pins” specifications, on Page 7)
that is referenced to SG. VH may be used to power external circuitry
having a total current consumption of no more than 5 mA under either
transient or steady state conditions including turn-on.
This port provides a low inductance Kelvin connection to –In and
should be used as reference for the OS, CD, SC,VH and IL ports.
OS – Output Set
The application-specific value of the Factorized Bus voltage (Vf) is set
by connecting a resistor between OS and SG. Resistor value selection is
shown in Table 1 on Page 2, and described on Page 9. If no resistor is
connected, the PRM output will be approximately one volt. If set
resistor is not collocated with the PRM a load bypass capacitor of
~200 pF may be required.
CD – Compensation Device
Adaptive Loop control is configured by connecting an external resistor
between the CD port and SG. Selection of an appropriate resistor value
(see Equation 2 on Page 9 and Table 1 on Page 2) configures the PRM
to compensate for voltage drops in the equivalent output resistance of
the VTM and the PRM-VTM distribution bus. If no resistor is connected
to CD, the PRM will be in Local Loop mode and will regulate the
+Out / –Out voltage to a fixed value.

The equations for calculating ROS and RCD to set a VTM output
voltage are:
After setting the output voltage from the procedure above the output
may be margined down (26 Vf min) by a resistor from SC-SG using this
formula:

Where Vfd is the desired factorized bus and Vfs is the set factorized bus.

A low voltage source can be applied to the SC port to margin the load
voltage in proportion to the SC reference voltage.

An external capacitor can be added to the SC port as shown in Figure 16
to control the output voltage slew rate for soft start.

P036F048T12AL
Application Information (continued)
OVP – Overvoltage Protection
Adjusting Current Limit
The output overvoltage protection set point of the P036F048T12AL is
factory preset for 56 V. If this threshold is exceeded the output shuts
down and a restart sequence is initiated, also indicated by PC pulsing.
If the condition that causes OVP is still present, the unit will again shut
down. This cycle will be repeated until the fault condition is removed.
The OVP set point may be set at the factory to meet unique high
voltage requirements.
The current limit can be lowered by placing an external resistor
between the IL and SG ports (see Figure 18 for resistor values). With
the IL port open-circuit, the current limit is preset to be within the
range specified in the output specifications table on Page 4.
100
As shown in Figure 17, the P036F048T12AL is rated to deliver 2.5 A
maximum, when it is delivering an output voltage in the range from
26 V to 48 V, and 120 W, maximum, when delivering an output
voltage in the range from 48 V to 55 V. When configuring a PRM for
use with a specific VTM, refer to the appropriate VTM data sheet. The
VTM input power can be calculated by dividing the VTM output power
by the VTM efficiency (available from the VTM data sheet). The input
power required by the VTM should not exceed the output power rating
of the PRM.

Input Fuse Recommendations
A fuse should be incorporated at the input to the PRM, in series with
the +In port. A fast acting fuse, NANO2 FUSE 451/453 Series 10 A
125 V, or equivalent, may be required to meet certain safety agency
Conditions of Acceptability. Always ascertain and observe the safety,
regulatory, or other agency specifications that apply to your specific
application.
Factorized Bus Voltage (Vf)
Product Safety Considerations
Figure 17 — P036F048T12AL rating based on Factorized Bus voltage
The Factorized Bus voltage should not exceed an absolute limit of
55 V, including steady state, ripple and transient conditions. Exceeding
this limit may cause the internal OVP set point to be exceeded.
If the input of the PRM is connected to SELV or ELV circuits, the output
of the PRM can be considered SELV or ELV respectively.
If the input of the PRM is connected to a centralized DC power system
where the working or float voltage is above SELV, but less than or
equal to 75 V, the input and output voltage of the PRM should be
classified as a TNV-2 circuit and spaced 1.3 mm from SELV circuitry or
accessible conductive parts according to the requirements of
UL60950-1, CSA 22.2 60950-1, EN60950-1, and IEC60950-1.
Parallel Considerations
The PR port is used to connect two PRMs in parallel to form a higher
power array. When configuring arrays, PR port interconnection
terminating impedance is 10 k to SG. See note Page 8 and refer to
Application Note AN002. Additionally one PRM should be designated
as the master while all other PRMs are set as slaves by shorting their
SC pin to SG. The PC pins must be directly connected (no diodes) to
assure a uniform start up sequence. Consult Vicor applications
engineering for applications requiring more than two PRMs.
