This document describes the setup procedure for the
ISL8013EVAL1 Rev A board.
Features
Description
• Components on one side of PCB
The General Purpose market requires maximum flexibility in
its power management solutions due to the large variety of
applications produced each year. The ISL8013 services this
need by offering a multitude of functionality, combined with
features that allow it to work in many different application
spaces.
• Max height 1.2mm HTSSOP14
• Less than 0.36in2 footprint for the complete 3A converter
From a functional standpoint, the ISL8013 is an ideal
controller for designers that want a “plug and play” solution.
It delivers a regulated output voltage from 0.8V to 5.5V at a
maximum current of 3A, with 11 or fewer total components.
Its 14 Ld HTSSOP package, combined with integrated
MOSFET switches and compensation, yield a solution size
below 0.36in2. This small form factor makes the ISL8013 a
desirable solution for any application where board space is a
premium (PDAs, cell phones, etc.).
Additional features include a power good (PG) indicator for
output voltage monitoring, and a clock frequency
synchronizing input (SYNC). The SYNC input allows the
regulator to switch anywhere between the nominal 1.4MHz
frequency and 12MHz. Synchronizing multiple switching
devices on the same bus eliminates beat-frequency
oscillations that can be detrimental to noise-sensitive
applications.
The ISL8013 supports power up into applications with prebiased loads by allowing Pulse Frequency Modulation (PFM)
during the soft-start period.
Overall, the ISL8013 delivers a robust, highly integrated
DC/DC buck converter for a variety of General Purpose
applications. For a more detailed description of the ISL8013,
refer to the data sheet [1].
The Intersil General Purpose family of monolithic switching
power supplies continues to expand with new selections to
better fit our customer’s needs.

NOTE: Intersil Pb-free plus anneal products employ special Pb-free
material sets; molding compounds/die attach materials and 100%
matte tin plate termination finish, which are RoHS compliant and
compatible with both SnPb and Pb-free soldering operations. Intersil
Pb-free products are MSL classified at Pb-free peak reflow
temperatures that meet or exceed the Pb-free requirements of
IPC/JEDEC J STD-020.

What is Needed
The following materials will be needed to perform testing:
• 1 electronic load [see note]
• 1 power supply: 0-6V @ 5A (see note)
• 2 precision digital multimeters
• Oscilloscope
NOTE: amperage rating of power supplies and loads are determined
by maximum expected loading plus a percentage margin of error
Step 2:
Set the +VIN power supply to +3.3V and place in
the “STANDBY” or “OFF” position. Set the supply
current limit to 5A. Connect the positive terminal
(+) of the supply to the VIN terminal P4 and the
negative terminal (-) of the supply to GND P5.
Connect the positive terminal (+) of a DMM to the
VIN terminal P4 and the negative terminal (-) to
the GND terminal P5.
Step 3:
Connect the positive terminal (+) of the electronic
load to the VOUT terminal P7. Connect the
negative terminal (-) of the electronic load to the
GND terminal P8. Make sure the electronic load is
set to the 0A condition.
Step 4:
Connect the positive terminal (+) of a DMM to the
VOUT terminal P7 and the negative terminal (-) to
the GND terminal P8.
Step 5:
Check to ensure all jumpers and switches are in
their default positions prior to application of power
(refer to Table 1).
Step 6:
Set all power supplies to the “ON” position. LED
D1 should be off. Check all DMM displays for
correct voltage levels. Adjust if necessary.
Step 7:
Turn the ENABLE switch S1 to the “ON” position.
LED D1 should glow red. The VOUT DMM should
read 1.80V (±5%).
EVAL Board Information
At this point the board has been properly powered up.
Normal testing can begin.
