Board User'sManual
Description
The 25VT6A5VGEVB evaluation board is designed such
that it can accommodate a 1x1 to a 2x2 combination of
MOSFETs, for m8−FL and SO8−FL packages. Depending
on the type of application and necessity, any combination of
the above packages can be used. The 25VT6A5VGEVB
evaluation board is designed to operate with an input voltage
ranging from 8 V to 16 V, and to provide an output voltage
of 0.8 V to 1.8 V for load currents of up to 25 A. The
25VT6A5VGEVB comes with a 5 V driver. The
25VT6A5VGEVB evaluation board has a number of test
points that can be used to evaluate its performance in any
given application.

defined in Table 1. The 25VT6A5VGEVB evaluation board
is set up to accept DFN8 footprints of ON Semiconductor
5 V drivers.
Connect the input voltage positive probe to Pin 1 of J1 and
sense probe at J9, negative probe to the GND at Pin 2 of J1
and sense probe at J10. The input voltage can range from 8 V
to 16 V.
Switching Frequency
The converter switching frequency is set by the voltage
divider setup of R13 and R14 between the pins 10 (ROSC)
and 33 (AGND) of the NCP5386 controller. In order to
change the frequency, these resistors have to be changed.
Changing the frequency also changes the Ilim (Over Current
shutdown threshold) settings.
Output Power
Connect the output voltage positive probe to J13 (large
screw connector) and sense probe at J11, ground probe at J14
(large screw connector) and the sense probe to J12. The
output voltage is set by the VID settings (SW2) and the
potentiometer (R60). Please refer to Start-Up Procedure and
Appendix.

Test Points Description
oscilloscope probes can be inserted into the probe socket and
are held in place. The Test Point and the Probe Socket are
shown in Figure 3.
Monitoring the Input Voltage
The input voltage can be monitored by using the test
points at J9 and J10 on the 25VT6A5VGEVB evaluation
board. This allows the user to find out the exact value of
input voltage since there will be no losses from the cables or
connectors.
Monitoring the PWM Signal
The PWM signal from the controller to the driver can be
monitored from the probe socket provided at JS11.
Monitoring the Output Voltage
The 25VT6A5VGEVB evaluation board provides two
test points for measuring the output voltage without any
losses from the cables or connectors. The output voltage can
be measured at the points J11 and J12 on the evaluation
board.
Monitoring the Switch Node Waveforms
The 25VT6A5VGEVB evaluation board provides the
opportunity to monitor the switch node waveforms. The
probe socket at test point JS8 provides the switch node
waveforms.
Monitoring the High Side and Low Side Waveforms
The high side waveforms can be obtained from the probe
socket at test point JS6 and the low side waveforms can be
obtained from the probe socket at test point JS10.
The probe sockets that are provided on the evaluation
board for monitoring the waveforms are such that the

TEST EQUIPMENT REQUIRED
Voltage Sources
Meters to Measure Voltages and Currents
(i) DC Supply Source for Input Voltage
The input voltage source should be a 0 to 20 V DC source.
The input voltage may be increased further depending on the
parts that are being used on the 25VT6A5VGEVB
evaluation board such that the part can withstand the applied
voltage. Hence, based on the required input voltage to be
applied, the requirement of the DC power supply varies.
In the 25VT6A5VGEVB Evaluation Board, the voltages
that are to be measured are Vin, Vout and Vdrv. The set up for
measuring these voltages are shown in Figure 4. The
connecting wires from the output terminal to the electronic
load should be thicker in order to avoid losses and to
measure the exact voltage at the end of the terminals.
(ii) DC Supply Source for Driver Voltage
The supply source for the driver should be a 0 to 10 V
source. The driver voltage should never exceed 6.5 V.
The oscilloscope is used to monitor the gate and switch
node waveforms. This should be an analog or digital
oscilloscope set for DC coupled measurement with 50 MHz
bandwidth. The resolution can be set at 5 V/division
vertically and 20ns/division horizontally. The oscilloscope
channels can be connected at various test points such as high
side gate (JS6), low side gate (JS10), switch node (JS8), the
driver PWM Signal (JS11), Vin (sense) (J9 & J10) and Vout
(sense) (J11 & J12).
Oscilloscope
Electronic Load
The electronic load supplied to the 25VT6A5VGEVB
evaluation board ranges from 0 A to 25 A. Hence a DC
current source of 0 A to 30 A is needed for the evaluation
board.

TEST SET UP AND PROCEDURE
Test Setup
The test set up, test points and components present on the
25VT6A5VGEVB Evaluation Board are shown in Figure 4.
The MOSFET parts placed on the evaluation board are the Q1
and Q4 (Refer to Figure 1).
Figure 4. Schematic of the Test Setup
Start up and Shut down Procedures
reset the controller. The first method is to toggle
Pin 8 (EN) of the Grayhill switch (SW2) to 0
(down position) and then back to 1 (up position).
The second method is to set VIN to 0 V and then
back up to the desired voltage, then turned on and
Vin re−established.
Before starting the test, the oscilloscope probes should be
connected. IR or k−type thermo−couples can be used to
monitor the temperature of the parts. IR monitoring requires
the removal of the oscilloscope probes due to the IR beam
interference.
Start up Procedure (VOUT 0.8 V − 1.56 V):
1. Initially set all the power supplies to 0 V.
2. Set the output voltage to the desired value by
changing the VID settings on SW2 (see
Appendix). The SW2 must be changed while the
driver and controller are off.
3. Set the driver voltage and controller voltage to 5 V.
4. Set the input voltage to the desired value
(8 V – 16 V).
5. VOUT Adjustments: the output voltage may be
fine−tuned at this time, by adjusting the R60
potentiometer.
6. Set the load current to required value. The load
current must be incremented slowly to prevent the
controller from shutting down due to transient
spikes on the inductor current sense lines (CS1,
CS2 in Figure 2). If the controller shuts down,
there are two different methods that can be used to

2. Reduce the input voltage to zero and then shut
down the input power supply.
3. Reduce the driver voltage and controller voltage to
zero. Then shut down the driver power supply and
controller power supply.

1. Shut down the load.
2. Adjust the potentiometer until the output voltage
measures 1.56 V.
3. Reduce the input voltage to zero and then shut
down the input power supply.

Table of AMD VID Settings for NCP5386B Controller
The Grayhill 76PSB08ST 8 position switch used for
setting the output voltage of the synchronous buck
converter. Figure 7 below shows the pin assignment of the
switch. VID0 – VID5 set the output voltage. DAC, and EN
is the enable pin of the controller (controller reset). EN must
always be in the up position (1) unless a reset is performed.
To set the output voltage to 1.2 V, for example: VID0 = 0
(down), VID1, VID2, VID3 = 1 (up), VID4 = 0 (down), and
VID5, DAC, EN = 1 (up).
