Abstract
This Application Note is intended to provide a fast start with the BTS 3160D Demoboard.
In normal application usage the BTS 3160D is designed to interact with some kind of µC,
therefore it is a little bit effort to set up a circuit in the lab.
To minimize this effort we supply You with the BTS 3160D Demoboard.

Introduction
The BTS 3160 Demoboard is a small PCB (7 cm × 8 cm) where a engineering sample is
already mounted with a 6 cm2 copper cooling area. LEDs show the device status. All
device pins can be directly accessed and a jumper disconnects the attached logic from
the device to avoid interferences for customer measurements.

Circuit Description
Out of the application circuit from Figure 1 the Demoboard was developed.

Typical Application Circuit
It was assumed that You want to see the device Status immediately and might also use
the Status signal for diagnosis purposes.
We did not implement a µC to give You still direct access to the device IN pin.

Circuit Description
As the Demoboard will be used for evaluation we also implemented a easy way (jumper)
to access the device without additional components on the IN path.
3.1
Demoboard Circuit
The Demoboard is using two XOR and LEDs to give a feedback of the device status.
A LDO voltage regulator TLE 4295 is used to supply the two XOR logic devices and the
LEDs.
The Capacitors C1 and C2 are needed to stabilize the 5 V-Regulator. C1 is also used to
stabilize VS.
The voltage on the VS pin must not reach undervoltage lockout during operation.
The voltage on the IN pin together with R1 is used to feedback the status of BTS 3160D.
By removing the Jumper J1 the IN pin is separated from the logic circuit and can be
directly accessed from the measurement point called “Status”. In this case the signal on
the IN connector will not reach the BTS 3160D anymore and also there will be no output
on the STATUS connector of the PCB.
