AP6507

AP6507-EVM
500kHz 18V 3A Synchronous DCDC Buck Converter
Description
The AP6507 is a 500kHz switching
frequency
internal
compensated
synchronous DC/DC buck converter. It has
integrated compensation, and low RDSON
high- and low-side MOSFETs.
The AP6507 is available in a standard
Green SOP-8L-EP with exposed pad for
improved thermal performance and is RoHS
compliant.
The AP6507 features current-mode control
operation, which enables fast transient
response times and easy loop stabilization.

AP6507-EVM
500kHz 18V 3A Synchronous DCDC Buck Converter
The AP6507SPG-EVM has a simple layout and allows access to the appropriate signals
through test points. To evaluate the performance of the AP6507, follow the procedure below:
1. Connect a power supply to the input terminals Vin and GND. Set Vin to 12V.
2. Connect the positive terminal of the electronic load to Vout and negative terminal to
GND.
3. AP6507 will automatically power up through the resistor dividor that connects EN to Vin.
This is only valid when Vin =6.5V to 18V.
4. For Vin =4.5V to 6.5V, Connect a power supply to EN and GND. Set EN=3V.
*DO NOT increase the voltage to EN > 5V, as it will damage the part.
a. To use the EN function drive EN above 1.3V to start the converter and below
0.4V to stop the converter.
5. The evaluation board should now power up with a 1.2V output voltage.
6. Check for the proper output voltage of 1.2V(+/-1%) at the output terminals Vout and
GND. Measurement can also be done with a multimeter with the positive and negative
leads between Vout and GND.
7. Set the load to 1.5A through the electronic load. Check for the stable operation of the
SW signal on the oscilloscope. Measure the switching frequency. A test point is
conveniently located at the head of the inductor.
Measurement/Performance Guidelines:
1) The evaluation board has the inductor pad spaced for easy access to measure the
inductor current. As shown in the picture, a current probe can be connected to the wire
loop to measure the inductor current.
2) When measuring the output voltage ripple, maintain the shortest possible ground lengths
on the oscilloscope probe. Long ground leads can erroneously inject high frequency
noise into the measured ripple.
3) For efficiency measurements, connect an ammeter in series with the input supply to
measure the input current. Connect an electronic load to the output for output current.
