STARTER KIT FUNCTIONALITY AND FEATURES
The Digital Power Starter Kit is a Switch Mode Power Supply (SMPS) board that consists
of one independent DC/DC synchronous Buck converter and one independent DC/DC
Boost converter. Figure 1-1 illustrates a high-level block diagram of the Digital Power
Starter Kit.
The Digital Power Starter Kit provides closed-loop Peak Current Mode control using a
2-Pole, 2-Zero (2P2Z) compensator implemented in software to maintain the desired
output voltage level of Peak Current Mode (PkCM) control. The dsPIC® DSC device
provides the necessary memory and peripherals for ADC conversion, PWM generation, analog comparison and general purpose I/O, preventing the need to perform these
functions in external circuitry.
SMPS dsPIC DSC devices are specifically designed to provide low-cost and efficient
control for a wide range of power supply topologies. The specialized peripherals facilitate
closed-loop feedback control of Switch Mode Power Supplies, providing communication
for remote monitoring and supervisory control.
The dsPIC33 ‘GS’ family of devices provides the following features:
•
•
•
•
Integrated program and data memory on a single chip
Ultra-fast interrupt response time with interrupt priority logic
High-Speed ADC with multiple Sample-and-Hold (S&H) circuits.
High-resolution PWM generators, specially designed to support different power
topologies
• High-speed analog comparators for control loop implementation and system
protection
• On-chip system communications (I2C™/SPI/UART)
• On-chip fast RC oscillator for lower system cost

POWER RATING OF CONVERTER STAGES
The Digital Power Starter Kit is designed to be a self-contained power supply with each
converter having three on-board resistive loads. Each converter includes one resistive
0.5W load and two resistive 1.25W loads for a total of 3W when the converters are
programmed to their nominal output voltages only. See Figure 1-2 for more details on
hardware configuration.
Note:
2.7.1
The output voltages should not be programmed to exceed their nominal
values when using the on-board resistive loads as this can cause the
resistive loads to exceed their power handling capabilities, leading to
potential damage of the board.
Buck Converter
The Buck converter stage is rated for a maximum of 5W. However, the maximum
on-board configurable resistive load is 3W. The output voltage and output current
should remain within its Safe Operating Area (SOA) to avoid damage to the board, as
shown in the graph in Figure 2-4. The output voltage of the Buck converter
(BUCK_Out) can be programmed from a 2.4V to 3.84V output, with a default
programmed voltage of 3.3V. The hardware gain, 3.16k/(3.16k + 1k + 20), of the voltage
feedback from the BUCK_Out is provided by the resistor divider network, R97 and
R105. Additionally, a 20 Ohm resistor, R90, for bode plot measurements is also in
series with the feedback network. The hardware gain of the current feedback is
provided by the current transformer (T1) with turns ratio (1:125) and burden
resistor, R69.

converter (BOOST_Out) can be programmed from a 13.4V to 17.8V output, with a
default programmed voltage of 15V. The hardware gain, 1k/(1k + 5.1k + 20), of the

Chapter 3. Demonstration Program Operation
The dsPIC33 ‘GS’ on the Digital Power Starter Kit is preprogrammed with Peak Current
Mode control application software that illustrates simultaneous 2-Pole, 2-Zero (2P2Z)
compensator control of the output voltage for the two DC/DC converter circuits. This
code can be downloaded from the Microchip web site (www.microchip.com).
This section covers the following topics:
• Program Demonstration
• Code Demonstration
• Other Code Examples
3.1
PROGRAM DEMONSTRATION
The demonstration program provides simultaneous closed-loop control of the output
voltage for both DC/DC converter stages of the Digital Power Starter Kit.
The 2P2Z control loop controls the Buck converter output voltage to 3.3V and the Boost
converter output voltage to 15V.
The 2P2Z control scheme consists of the following parameters:
• Reference – Desired set point for the output voltage
• Error – Calculation of (Reference – Feedback). This is the value the compensator
acts upon
• System Plant – This is the converter being controlled
• Output – Either the output voltage or current
• Feedback – The measured output signal level
Please refer to Section 3.2.4 “2P2Z SW Control Compensator” for further
details.The demonstration program requires no manual preparation except to connect
9V to the J2 connector.

Demonstration Program Operation
3.2
CODE DEMONSTRATION
3.2.1
System Initialization
When power is applied to the board, the program starts by executing the following
system initialization routines:
• Peripherals – The required peripherals (PWM, ADC, Comparators, I2C™ module,
Timers and GPIO) are configured and enabled.
• Interrupts – Include ADC(s), Timer(s), I2C and comparator(s) interrupts.
• Loads – Can be configured for either Static mode or Dynamic mode. If Dynamic
mode is selected, a switching frequency can be configured in application SW.
3.2.2
Fault Check
The program checks for any Faults that might have occurred during program operation.
The Fault checks include the following:
• Input Over/Undervoltage
• Buck/Boost Converter Overtemperature
• Buck/Boost Soft Start
If any of the listed Faults occur, the corresponding Fault will be shown on the LCD
display. The corresponding PWM signals and loads are disabled until the Fault condition has been cleared. Fault checks are dispersed throughout all the interrupts. If no
Fault condition is detected, the program proceeds.
3.2.3
Soft Start
The Soft Start routine ramps up the output voltage in a closed-loop fashion until it is at
the programmed output voltage value. This routine ensures that the output does not
overshoot the desired voltage.
3.2.4
2P2Z SW Control Compensator
The 2-Pole, 2-Zero (2P2Z) controller implemented in SW is the digital implementation
of the Analog Type II controller. This filter maintains regulation of the output voltage and
ensures stability during different line/load conditions. This controller requires three
feedback errors, multiplied by their associated coefficients, plus the two latest controller
output values, multiplied by their associated coefficients, along the delay line to provide
proper compensation of the power converter. The coefficients are determined
externally using simulation tools.
Reference the smps_2p2z_dspic.s library and smps_control.h header files in
the DPSK software package for further implementation details.
3.2.5
System While (1) Loop
The LCD refresh functions are called within the system Idle routine. The routine
refreshes the LCD screen based on both user input (SW1) and converter feedback
(Fault flags/VIN measurement/converter output voltage). All Fault display updates are
performed in the system Idle loop routine, as well as the toggling of the displayed
measurements as the results of pressing SW1.
