Description
Key Features
The ZL8101 is an integrated mixed-signal power conversion
and management IC that combines an efficient step-down
DC/DC converter with key power and thermal management
functions in a single package. The ZL8101 incorporates
current sharing and adaptive efficiency-optimization
algorithms to provide a flexible, efficient power IC building
block.
• 30A Synchronous Buck Converter
• Optimized for High Current and High Efficiency
• Configurable through SMBus
• Onboard Enable Switch
• Power-Good Indicator
Target Specifications
The ZL8101_30AEV2Z Demo Board is a 6-layer board
demonstrating a 30A synchronous buck converter.
Sequencing, tracking, margining, plus other features can be
evaluated using this board.
• VIN = 12V
• VOUT = 1V/30A
• FSW = 533kHz
A USB to SMBus adapter board can be used to connect the
demo board to a PC. The PMBus command set is accessed by
using the Zilker Labs PowerNavigator™ evaluation software
from a PC running Microsoft Windows.
• Efficiency: >88% at 20A
• Output Ripple: ±1%
• Dynamic Response: ±3% (33%-83%-33% LOAD STEP,
di/dt = 5A/μs)
Ordering Information
PART NUMBER
• Operating Temperature: +25°C

Application Note 1781
Functional Description
The ZL8101_30AEV2Z 30A Demo Board provides all circuitry
required to demonstrate the features of the ZL8101. The ZL8101
30A has a functionally optimized ZL8101 circuit layout that
allows efficient operation up to the maximum output current.
Power and load connections are provided through plug-in
sockets.
A majority of the features of the ZL8101 such as soft-start delay
and ramp times, supply sequencing, voltage tracking, and
voltage margining are available on this board. For voltage
tracking and sequencing evaluation, the board can be connected
to any other Zilker Labs evaluation boards that supports the
Digital DC (DDC) bus.
Figure1 shows a simplified schematic of the ZL8101_30AEV2Z
30A Demo Board. All power to the board (VIN and I2C bus) must
be removed before changing the jumpers.
The hardware enable function is controlled by a toggle switch on
the ZL8101_30AEV2Z 30A board. The power-good (PG) LED
indicates the state of PG when external power is applied to the
ZL8101_30AEV2Z 30A board. The right angle headers at
opposite ends of the board are for connecting a USB to SMBus
adapter board or for easy chaining of multiple evaluation boards.
Figure 2 shows the ZL8101_30AEV2Z 30A Demo Board
complete circuit. The circuit consists of the ZL8101 IC with its
minimal component count to realize a 30A buck converter. The
board layout has been optimized for thermal performance.
Figure 3 is the board interface circuitry. Figures 5 through 10
show the PCB layout for the board, including the board
fabrication notes.
The bill of materials (BOM) and configuration file are also
included for reference.
Operation
The ENABLE switch can then be moved to “ENABLE” and the
ZL8101_30AEV2Z 30A Demo board can be tested. Alternately,
the PMBus ON-OFF CONFIG and OPERATION commands may be
used.
Quick Start Guide
Stand Alone Operation
1. Set ENABLE switch to “DISABLE”.
2. Apply load to VOUT+/VOUT- .
3. Connect the USB to SMBus adapter board to J2 of the board.
4. Ensure that jumper shorting headers J1, J6, and J7 are
installed.
5. Connect supplied USB cable from computer to USB to SMBus
adapter board.
6. Connect power supply to VIN+/VIN- (supply turned off).
7. Turn power supply on.
8. Set ENABLE switch to “ENABLE”.
9. Monitor the ZL8101_30AEV2Z 30A demo board operation
using an oscilloscope.
USB (PMBus) Operation
1. Set ENABLE switch to “DISABLE”.
2. Apply load to VOUT+/VOUT- .
3. Connect power supply to VIN+/VIN- (supply turned off).
4. Turn power supply on.
5. Insert the Zilker Labs Eval Kit CD.
6. Connect USB to SMBus adapter board to J2 of
ZL8101_30AEV2Z 30A Demo Board.
7. Connect supplied USB cable from computer to USB to SMBus
adapter board.
8. Upon first-time connection, the Found New Hardware Wizard
will appear.
PMBus Operation
9. Select ‘No’ at prompt to search the Internet for drivers.
The ZL8101 utilizes the PMBus protocol. The PMBus functionality
can be controlled via USB from a PC running the PowerNavigator
evaluation software in a Windows XP, Windows 2000/NT, or
Windows 7 operating system.
10. Follow the steps on the screen to install the drivers from the
CD.
Install the evaluation software using the CD included in the
ZL8101_30AEV2Z 30A Demo Board kit.
12. Using PowerNavigator, set the enable mode to PMBus Enable,
press the PMBus Enable button on the PowerNavigator
opening screen.
For board operation, connect the included USB-to-SMBus adapter
board to J2 of the ZL8101_30AEV2Z 30A Demo board. Connect
the desired load and an appropriate power supply to the input
and connect the included USB cable to the PC running the
PowerNavigator evaluation software. Place the ENABLE switch in
“DISABLE” and turn on the power.
The evaluation software allows modification of all ZL8101
PMBus parameters. The ZL8101 device on the board has been
pre-configured as described in the Target Specifications on the
front page, but the user may modify the operating parameters
through the PowerNavigator software or by loading a predefined
scenario from a configuration file.
11. Install the PowerNavigator evaluation software by running
setup.exe from the PowerNavigator_installer folder on the CD.
13. Monitor and configure the ZL8101_30AEV2Z 30A Demo
Board using PMBus commands in the evaluation software.
14. Test the ZL8101_30AEV2Z 30A Demo Board operation using
an oscilloscope and the evaluation software.
Typical room temp efficiency curves are shown in Figure 11.
Typical transient and operational waveforms are shown in
Figures 12 through 15.
Use the mouse-over pop-ups for PowerNavigator help. Refer to
Zilker Labs application note AN2033 for PMBus details.
