AN2033: Intersil PMBus Command Set for Digital-DCâ„¢ Products

Application Note 2033
Intersil PMBus Command Set for Digital-DC™ Products
Digital power design allows for optimal configuration,
parametric monitoring and increased efficiency while reducing
the number of power supply components. Communication
with digital power devices is required to take full advantage of
digital power capabilities.
The System Management Interface (SMI) Forum and the
Power Management Bus Implementers Forum created a
hardware interface and a command language to deal with
standardization of a communication interface. This Power
Management Bus (PMBus™) command language standard is a
comprehensive set of commands used with the
industry-standard SMBus to enhance the control and
monitoring of digital power circuits and thermal management.
The PMBus specification is written in two parts. The first,
“Specification Part I – General Requirements Transport and
Electrical Interface” on page 5 specifies the physical interface
to the PMBus. It includes the SMBus communication bus as
the electrical interface and protocol. The second part,
“Specification Part II – Command Language” on page 5,
describes the command set. This command set includes
provisions for manufacturer specifiable commands and data.
Intersil Digital-DC™ (DDC) based ICs feature the
implementation of PMBus in an efficient power supply
controller device. The DDC™ bus is an intra-device
communication bus for coordination of Intersil devices. This
document describes the standard PMBus commands available
in the following Intersil devices and modules that include the
DDC™ bus:
Manufacturer specific commands are also described in this
document. Each command description includes the
parameters defined by Intersil that are necessary for its use.
This document should be used in conjunction with the PMBus
specification documents standard command description and
Intersil application notes. The commands in this document are
grouped in functional sections in similar fashion to the “PMBus
Power System Management Protocol Specifications” found in
the following website.

THE SYSTEM MANAGEMENT INTERFACE FORUM (SMIF)
http://www.powersig.org/
The System Management Interface Forum (SMIF) supports the rapid advancement of an efficient and compatible technology base that
promotes power management and systems technology implementations. The SMIF provides a membership path for any company or
individual to be active participants in any or all of the various working groups established by the implementer forums.
POWER MANAGEMENT BUS IMPLEMENTERS FORUM (PMBUS–IF)
http://pmbus.org/Home
The PMBus–IF supports the advancement and early adoption of the PMBus protocol for power management. This website offers recent
PMBus specification documents, PMBus articles, as well as upcoming PMBus presentations and seminars, PMBus Document Review
Board (DRB) meeting notes, and other PMBus related news.
PMBus – Power System Management Bus Protocol Documents
These specification documents may be obtained from the PMBus-IF website described above. These are required reading for complete
understanding of the PMBus implementation. This application note will not readdress all of the details contained within the two PMBus
Specification documents.
SPECIFICATION PART I – GENERAL REQUIREMENTS TRANSPORT AND ELECTRICAL INTERFACE
Includes the general requirements, defines the transport and electrical interface and timing requirements of hardwired signals.
SPECIFICATION PART II – COMMAND LANGUAGE
Describes the operation of commands, data formats, fault management and defines the command language used with the PMBus.
SMBus – System Management Bus Documents
SMBUS CONTROL METHOD INTERFACE SPECIFICATION
http://www.smbus.org/specs/
This specification defines a System Management Bus (SMBus) interface for Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI).
PMBus Use Guidelines
The PMBus is a powerful tool that allows the user to optimize circuit performance by configuring devices for their application. When
configuring a device in a circuit, the device should be disabled whenever most settings are changed with PMBus commands. Some
exceptions to this recommendation are OPERATION, ON_OFF_CONFIG, CLEAR_FAULTS, VOUT_COMMAND, VOUT_MARGIN_HIGH,
VOUT_MARGIN_LOW, and ASCCR_CONFIG. While the device is enabled any command can be read. Many commands do not take effect
until after the device has been re-enabled, hence the recommendation that commands that change device settings are written while
the device is disabled.
When sending the STORE_DEFAULT_ALL, STORE_USER_ALL, RESTORE_DEFAULT_ALL, and RESTORE_USER_ALL commands, it is
recommended that no other commands are sent to the device for 100ms after sending STORE or RESTORE commands.
In addition, there should be a 2ms delay between repeated READ commands sent to the same device. When sending any other
command, a 5ms delay is recommended between repeated commands sent to the same device.
Summary
All commands can be read at any time.
Always disable the device when writing commands that change device settings. Exceptions to this rule are commands intended to be
written while the device is enabled, for example, VOUT_MARGIN_HIGH.
To be sure a change to a device setting has taken effect, write the STORE_USER_ALL command, then cycle input power and re-enable.

Fault Response Commands
All Intersil devices’ fault responses, including current faults, are defined by Table 1. This table describes the specifics for the Intersil
devices. If a device is used in a current sharing rail, the device will not attempt a retry until the entire current share rail attempts a retry
following a disable event.
TABLE 1. Intersil DEVICE SPECIFICATIONS
BITS
7:6
5:3
DESCRIPTION
VALUE
MEANING
Response:
00
Continuous operation. (Ignore fault)
For all modes set by Bits [7:6], the device:
• Pulls SALRT low
• Sets the related fault bit in the status
registers. Fault bits are only cleared by the
CLEAR_FAULTS command.
01
Delay, Disable and Retry
Delay time is specified by Bits [2:0] and the delay time unit specified for that
particular fault. If the fault condition is still present at the end of the delay time,
the unit retries according to the setting in Bits [5:3].
10
Disable and Retry according to the setting in Bits [5:3].
11
The device’s output is disabled while the fault is present. Operation resumes and
the output is enabled when the fault condition no longer exists.
000
No Retry. The output remains disabled.
Retry Setting
001 to 110 The PMBus device attempts to restart the number of times set by these bits. The
minimum number is 1 and the maximum number is 6. If the device fails to
restart in the allowed number of retries, it disables the output and remains
disabled. The time between the start of each attempt to retry is set by the value
in Bits [2:0] along with the delay time unit specified for that particular fault.
111
2:0
Retry Time and Delay Time
The PMBus device attempts retry continuously until it is commanded to disable
(by the Enable pin or OPERATION command), input power is removed, or another
fault condition causes the unit to shut down.
000 to 111 This time count is used for both the amount of time between retry attempts and
for the amount of time a rail is to delay its response after a fault is detected. The
retry time and delay time units are defined by the type of fault within each
device.
NOTE: The delay time is the time between restart attempts

Reference: AN2035 – Compensation Using CompZLTM
Definition: The PID_TAPS_ADAPT command is set to the calculated taps for an average load current equal to a multiple of one-half of
the ripple current. The command follows the same format as the PID_TAPS (see “PID_TAPS” on page 31) and is used by the adaptive
compensation algorithm over varying load.
The algorithm uses a linear interpolation to adjust operating Taps A, B, and C, with respect to the average load current. Two optimal sets
of taps are required. One set of taps corresponds to IRIPPLE/2, which is configured by the PID_TAPS command, while the other set is
configured by the PID_TAPS_ADAPT command and corresponds to c*Iripple/2 where c is the Half-Ripple Factor, (2(N+1) + 1), and is
configured using the Adaptive Compensation Half-Ripple Factor field (N, bits 5:3) in MISC_CONFIG.

Definition: The ZL2008 pinstrap settings are used as indexes into lookup tables to determine factors to multiply times the baseline taps
in PID_TAPS. The result of these operations may be read back in PID_TAPS_CALC, and are used to configure the control loop
compensator coefficients. The user may override this feature by saving his preferred taps in PID_TAPS_CALC in the User or Default
Store. Tables for specifying compensation coefficients by pinstrap are shown in the ZL2008 Datasheet.

Definition: Configures the correction factor and temperature measurement source when performing temperature coefficient correction
for current sense. Current sense scale is corrected for external FET controllers and the current sense offset is corrected for internal FET
controllers. The command parameter has the following format as shown in Table 11.
To determine the hex value of the Tempco Correction factor (TC) for current scale of a power stage using rDS(ON) current sensing, first
determine the temperature coefficient of resistance for the conductor, . This is found with Equation 7:
R REF – R
 = ---------------------------------------------R REF  T REF – T 
(EQ. 7)
Where: R = Conductor resistance at temperature “T”
RREF = Conductor resistance at reference temperature TREF
 = Temperature coefficient of resistance for the conductor material
T = Temperature measured by temperature sensor, in °C
TREF = Reference temperature that  is specified at for the conductor material
After  is determined, convert the value in units of 100ppm/°C. This is done with Equation 8:
This value is then converted to a hex value.

TC = ------------------100

Definition: Sets the non-overlap between PWM transitions using a 2-byte data field. The most-significant byte controls the high-side to
low-side dead time value as a single 2’s-complement signed value in units of ns. The least-significant byte controls the low-side to
high-side dead time value. Positive values imply a non-overlap of the FET drive on-times. Negative values imply an overlap of the FET
drive on-times. The default value of the maximum dead time for the adaptive dead time algorithm is 60ns. Writing a value to this
command immediately before writing the DEADTIME_CONFIG command will set a new maximum for the adaptive dead time algorithm.
The device will operate at the dead time values written to this command when adaptive dead time is disabled.

Reference:
Definition: This command sets which rail DDC IDs should be listened to for fault spreading information. The data sent is a 4-byte, 32-bit,
bit vector where every bit represents a rail’s DDC ID. A bit set to 1 indicates a device DDC ID to which the configured device will respond
upon receiving a fault spreading event. In this vector, bit 0 of byte 0 corresponds to the rail with DDC ID 0. Following through, Bit 7 of
byte 3 corresponds to the rail with DDC ID 31.
Note: The device/rail’s own DDC ID should not be set within the DDC_GROUP command for that device/rail.
All devices in a current share rail must shutdown for the rail to report a shutdown.
If fault spread mode is enabled in USER_CONFIG (Bit 8 set to 1), the device will immediately shut down if one of its DDC_GROUP
members fail. The device/rail will attempt its configured restart only after all devices/rails within the DDC_GROUP have cleared their
faults.
If fault spread mode is disabled in USER_CONFIG (Bit 8 cleared to 0), the device will perform a sequenced shutdown as defined by the
SEQUENCE command setting. The rails/devices in a sequencing set only attempt their configured restart after all faults have cleared
within the DDC_GROUP. If fault spread mode is disabled and sequencing is also disabled, the device will ignore faults from other
devices and stay enabled.

Units: N/A
Reference: AN2031 -Writing Configuration Files for Intersil Devices
Definition: Sets a 256-bit (32-byte) parameter which identifies which commands are to be protected against write-access at lower
security levels. Each bit in this parameter corresponds to a command according to the command’s code. The command with a code of
00h (PAGE) is protected by the least-significant bit of the least-significant byte, followed by the command with a code of 01h and so
forth. Note that all possible commands have a corresponding bit regardless of whether they are protectable or supported by the device.
Clearing a command’s UNPROTECT bit indicates that write-access to that command is only allowed if the device’s security level has
been raised to an appropriate level. Although the UNPROTECT command is writeable at any security level, it only takes effect when it is
stored in the Default or User store (storing in the Default store requires a security level of 3, and storing in the User store requires a
security level of 2 or higher).

Data Length in Bytes: 1

Factory Value: 0x01
Units: N/A
Reference: AN2031 - Writing Configuration Files for Intersil Devices
Definition: The device provides write protection for individual commands. Each bit in the UNPROTECT parameter controls whether its
corresponding command is writeable (commands are always readable). If a command is not writeable, a password must be entered in
order to change its parameter (i.e., to enable writes to that command). There are two types of passwords, public and private. The public
password provides a simple lock-and-key protection against accidental changes to the device. It would typically be sent to the device in the
application prior to making changes. Private passwords allow commands marked as non-writeable in the UNPROTECT parameter to be
changed. Private passwords are intended for protecting factory-installed configurations and would not typically be used in the application.
Each store (USER and DEFAULT) can have its own UNPROTECT string and private password. If a command is marked as non-writeable in
the DEFAULT UNPROTECT parameter (its corresponding bit is cleared), the private password in the DEFAULT Store must be sent in order to
change that command. If a command is writeable according to the Default UNPROTECT parameter, it may still be marked as non-writeable
in the User Store UNPROTECT parameter. In this case, the User private password can be sent to make the command writeable.
The device supports four levels of security. Each level is designed to be used by a particular class of users, ranging from module
manufacturers to end users, as discussed below. Levels 0 and 1 correspond to the public password. All other levels require a private
password. Writing a private password can only raise the security level. Writing a public password will reset the level down to 0 or 1.
Figure 1 on page 44 shows the algorithm used by the device to determine if a particular command write is allowed.
Security Level 3 – Module Vendor
Level 3 is intended primarily for use by Module vendors to protect device configurations in the Default Store. Clearing a UNPROTECT bit
in the Default Store implies that a command is writeable only at Level 3 and above. The device’s security level is raised to Level 3 by
writing the private password value previously stored in the Default Store. To be effective, the module vendor must clear the UNPROTECT
bit corresponding to the STORE_DEFAULT_ALL and RESTORE_FACTORY commands. Otherwise, Level 3 protection is ineffective since
the entire store could be replaced by the user, including the enclosed private password.
Security Level 2 – User
Level 2 is intended for use by the end user of the device. Clearing a UNPROTECT bit in the User Store implies that a command is
writeable only at Level 2 and above. The device’s security level is raised to Level 2 by writing the private password value previously
stored in the User Store. To be effective, the user must clear the UNPROTECT bit corresponding to the STORE_USER_ALL,
RESTORE_DEFAULT_ALL, STORE_DEFAULT_ALL, and RESTORE_FACTORY commands. Otherwise, Level 2 protection is ineffective since
the entire store could be replaced, including the enclosed private password.

Level 1 is intended to protect against accidental changes to ordinary commands by providing a global write-enable. It can be used to
protect the device from erroneous bus operations. It provides access to commands whose UNPROTECT bit is set in both the Default and
User Store. Security is raised to Level 1 by writing the public password stored in the User Store using the PUBLIC_PASSWORD
command. The public password stored in the Default Store has no effect.
Security Level 0 - Read-Only Mode
Level 0 implies that only commands which are always writeable (namely, PUBLIC_PASSWORD, PRIVATE_PASSWORD, and UNPROTECT)
are available. This represents the lowest authority level and hence the most protected state of the device. The level can be reduced to 0
by using PUBLIC_PASSWORD to write any value which does not match the stored public password.

Glossary
Protectable: The data available in these commands are protectable. The UNPROTECT command is used for the protect function.
Linear Format: The linear format is defined in the PMBus specification as a two byte value consisting of an exponent and a mantissa.
VOUT linear mode format: The VOUT format is defined in the PMBus specification for a number of VOUT command modes. Intersil devices
use the linear VOUT mode with an exponent of -13, resulting in VOUT command voltage = (VOUT command data) x 2-13.
Custom Format: The custom format describes the command data as being a collection of single bits or sets of bits.
