DEMO MANUAL DC1978A
LTC2974 Quad
Digital Power Supply
Manager with EEPROM
DESCRIPTION
The DC1978A is a demonstration system for the LTC®2974
quad I2C/SMBus/PMBus power supply monitor and controller with EEPROM. The DC1978A demonstrates the
ability of the LTC2974 to monitor, supervise, sequence,
trim, margin and log faults for four power supplies. Each
power supply channel of the LTC2974 monitors current,
voltage and temperature. This demonstration system is
supported by the LTpowerPlay™ graphical user interface
(GUI) that enables complete control of all LTC2974 features.
The DC1978A consists of two circuit boards designed to
work as a pair, DC1809A and DC1810A. The DC1809A
contains all the circuitry needed to insert the LTC2974
into a power system and control four power supplies.
The DC1810A contains four power supplies, two LTC3860
DrMOS supplies and two LTM®4620 supplies, which are
configured to be controlled by the LTC2974. Together, these
two boards form a sophisticated four-channel digitally
programmable power supply.
Together, the LTpowerPlay software and DC1978A hardware
system create a powerful development environment for
designing and testing LTC2974 configuration settings.
These settings can be stored in the LTC2974 internal
EEPROM or in a file. This file can later be used to order
preprogrammed devices or to program devices in a production environment. The LTpowerPlay software displays
all of the configuration settings and real time measurements from the LTC2974. Telemetry allows easy access
and decoding of the fault log created by the LTC2974. The
LTC2974 on the DC1809A board comes preprogrammed
with the EEPROM values appropriate for the four power
supplies used on the DC1810A. Just plug and play!
Multiple DC1978A board sets can be cascaded together to
form a high channel count power supply (see Multiboard
Arrays). This cascaded configuration demonstrates
features of the LTC2974 which enable timing and fault
information to be shared across multiple LTC2974s allowing for the formation of a single, coherent power supply
control system. This cascaded configuration is supported
by the LTpowerPlay GUI and allows the user to configure
up to nine LTC2974s, thereby controlling up to 36 separate power supplies. Larger arrays (>9) of LTC2974s are
supported through programmable I2C base address or
bus segmentation.
The DC1809A/DC1810A boards are powered by an external
12V power supply. Communication with the LTpowerPlay
software is via the DC1613 USB to I2C/SMBus/PMBus
controller. The following is a checklist of items which can
be obtained from the LTC website or LTC Field Sales.

LTpowerPlay GUI SOFTWARE
LTpowerPlay is a powerful Windows based development
environment that supports Linear Technology digital power
ICs with EEPROM, including the LTC2974 and LTC2978
quad and octal PMBus power supply managers, and
the LTC3880 dual output PolyPhase® step-down DC/DC
controller with digital power system management. The
software supports a variety of different tasks. You can
use LTpowerPlay to evaluate Linear Technology ICs by
connecting to a demo board system. LTpowerPlay can
also be used in an offline mode (with no hardware present) in order to build a multichip configuration file that
can be saved and reloaded at a later time. LTpowerPlay
provides unprecedented diagnostic and debug features. It
becomes a valuable diagnostic tool during board bring up
to program or tweak the power management scheme in
a system or to diagnose power issues when bringing up
rails. LTpowerPlay utilizes the DC1613A USB-to-SMBus
controller to communicate with one of many potential
targets, including the LTC2974’s DC1978A demo system
or a customer board. The software also provides an automatic update feature to keep the software current with
the latest set of device drivers and documentation. The
LTpowerPlay software can be downloaded from:
http://linear.com/ltpowerplay

SELECTING I2C ADDRESS
DC1978A LEDS
The I2C/SMBus address of the LTC2974 equals the base
address + N, where N is a number from 0 to 8. N can be
configured by setting the ASEL0 and ASEL1 pins to VDD33,
GND or FLOAT. See Table 3. Using one base address and
the nine values of N, nine LTC2974s can be connected
together to control thirty six outputs. The base address
is stored in the MFR_I2C_BASE_ADDRESS register. The
base address can be written to any value, but generally
should not be changed unless the desired range of addresses overlap existing addresses. Watch that the address
range does not overlap with other I2C/SMBus device or
global addresses, including I2C/SMBus multiplexers and
bus buffers.
The red LEDs on ALERTB, FAULTB0, FAULTB1 and AUXFAULTB (D3, D4, D5, D2) indicate a fault has occurred.
The green LED (D6) next to them is the LTC2974 PWRGD
signal. Each individual channel on DC1810A also has
its own green PWR GOOD LED (PG0, PG1, PG2, PG3).
When the USB to I2C/SMBus/PMBus controller power or
external power is applied, the green LED D1 will illuminate,
indicating that the LTC2974 is powered.
FAULTING AN OUTPUT
The outputs of the power supplies CH0 to CH3 may be
shorted indefinitely. This is a good way to induce UV faults.
Use a jumper wire or a coin to short any output.
RESET THE LTC2974
To reset the LTC2974 and reload the EEPROM contents
into operating memory (RAM), press SW4 on DC1809A.

FAULT SHARING SETUP IN THE GUI
TRACKING BASED SEQUENCING
Use the fault sharing setup tool to configure the fault
sharing in the GUI. Before doing so, view the fault sharing
demo in the GUI. Go to Tools > Fault Sharing Diagram.
Also, read the section on fault sharing in the data sheet.
The LTC2974 supports tracking power supplies that are
equipped with a tracking pin and configured for tracking.
A tracking power supply uses a secondary feedback terminal (TRACK) to allow its output voltage to be scaled to
an external master voltage. Typically, the external voltage
is generated by the supply with the highest voltage in the
system, which is fed to the slave track pins (see Figure 6).
Any supplies that track a master supply must be enabled
before the master supply comes up and disabled after the
master supply comes down. Enabling the slave supplies
“WHY AM I OFF?” TOOL
Use the “Why am I Off?” tool in the LTpowerPlay GUI to
diagnose the reason a power supply channel is turned off.
The tool can be located in the top right corner of the GUI,
next to the Register Information tab.

DEMO MANUAL DC1978A
COMMON DEMO BOARD OPERATIONS
when the master is down requires supervisors monitoring
the slaves to disable UV detection. Slave UC detection must
also be disabled when the slaves are tracking the master
down to prevent false UC events. All channels configured
for tracking must track off together in response to a fault
on any channel or any other condition that can bring one
or more of the channels down. Prematurely disabling a
slave channel via its run pin may cause that channel to
shut down out of sequence. The LTC2974 supports the
following tracking features:
• Track channels on and off without issuing false UV/
UC events when the slave channels are tracking up or
down.
• Ability to reconfigure selected channels that are part of
a tracking group to sequence up after the group has
tracked up or sequence down before the group has
tracked down.
To demonstrate the tracking features of LTC2974, DC1810A
has three jumpers (JP1, JP2 and JP3) that can be set to
connect resistive dividers from the 1.8V master supply
(CH0) to the TRACK pins of channels 1 to 3.
The required timing settings and diagrams in order to
enable tracking with LTC2974 are listed in the data sheet,
and a brief summary is shown below:
Master channel 0
• Track all channels down in response to a fault from a
slave or master.
• TON_DELAY = Ton_delay_master
• Track all channels down when VIN_SNS drops below
VIN_OFF, share clock is held low or RESTORE_USER_
ALL is issued.
• TOFF_DELAY = Toff_delay_master
• TON_RISE = Ton_rise_master

PROCEDURE TO DEMONSTRATE TRACKING WITH
DC1978A
1. Start with the default LTC2974 EEPROM and jumper
settings for DC1978A. Set the jumpers JP1, JP2 and
JP3 to TRACK CH0 position. This connects the TRACK
pins of the slave supply channels to the output voltage
of the master channel through resistive dividers (see
Figure 6).
2. Set DC1809A jumper JP4 to SW0 position to propagate
the CONTROL0 switch to the CONTROL0 pin of LTC2974.
3. Set the preload (100mA) of CH0 (SW1 to ON) and the
preloads of the slave channels CH1 to CH3 to OFF (SW2
to SW4 to OFF). The absence of load for the slave channels makes improper sequencing down behavior more
obvious.
4. Configure all power supplies to respond to CONTROL0,
by setting the appropriate bit in the paged MFR_CONFIG
register. In this case U0:0, U0:1, U0:2 and U0:3 are all
controlled by CONTROL0.

5. Set the TON_DELAY of all slaves (CH1, CH2 and CH3)
to 0ms and the TON_DELAY for the master channel to
20ms.
6. Set the TOFF_DELAY of all slaves (CH1, CH2 and CH3)
to 20ms and the TOFF_DELAY for the master channel
to 0ms.
7. Set the TON_RISE of all slaves (CH1, CH2 and CH3)
to 30ms and the TON_RISE for the master channel to
10ms.

CASCADE SEQUENCING
Cascade sequence ON allows a master power supply to
sequence ON a series of slave supplies by connecting
each power supply’s power good output to the control
pin of the next power supply in the chain. Please note
that the power good signal is that of the power supply
and not derived from the LTC2974’s internal power good
processing. Power good based cascade sequence OFF is
not supported, OFF sequencing must be managed using
immediate or time based sequence OFF. See also Tracking
Based Sequencing.
Cascade sequence ON is illustrated in Figure 9. For each
slave channel Mfr_config_cascade_on bit is asserted
high and the associated control input is connected to the
power good output of the previous power supply. In this
configuration each slave channel’s startup is delayed until
the previous supply has powered up.
Cascade sequence OFF is not directly supported. Options
for reversing the sequence when turning the supplies off
include:
• Using the OPERATION command to turn off all the
channels with an appropriate off delay.
• Using the FAULT pin to bring all the channels down immediately or in sequence with an appropriate off delay.

SETUP PROCEDURE FOR MULTIBOARD ARRAYS
Multiple DC1978As can be combined to control up to 36
independent power supplies. This demonstrates the coordinated fault responses and accurate time base shared
across multiple LTC2974 chips.
Procedure:
1. Stack the boards together by plugging J1 of the second
DC1809A board into J3 of the first DC1809A board.
2. Connect the 12V VIN across the boards using the banana cables as shown in Figure 12 below. Preserve the
correct polarity (connect VIN to VIN and GND to GND).
3. The USB to I2C/SMBus/PMBus controller may be
plugged into either board. If both LTC2974s do not show
up in the GUI, click the hourglass icon to enumerate
the I2C bus and find the addresses of the parts. Make
sure to set different addresses for each LTC2974.
4. The addresses of the LTC2974 are set by the jumpers
JP1 and JP2 on DC1809A and the settings have to be
unique for each board in the array.
5. Since the individual control lines are connected across
the boards (CONTRL0 is a common bus across all
boards in the array, as are CONTROL1 CONTROL2
and CONTROL3), make sure that all control pins on all
DC1809A boards are set to the selected active state.
6. Relaunch LTpowerPlay. After launching, LTpowerPay
will enumerate the entire board array and build a representative system tree and read all hardware settings
into the GUI.
