DEMONSTRATION NOTE
Description
The NCV8502A High Current Demo board highlights the
procedure for increasing the output current capability of the
NCV8502. This is accomplished by adding a discrete driver
to the application with the adjustable version of the
NCV8502. The combination of the NCV8502 and the
MJD31C will supply greater than 1.0 A of current to the user
programmable output voltage.
It is intended for the user to make use of the flexibility of
the parts output voltage using a discrete resistor feedback
divider. In this demonstration board, a potentiometer has
been added to display the parts’ output availability in fixed
output voltages from 2.5 V to 10 V. The capability of the
output voltage has an absolute maximum voltage of 20 V on
the IC, and must be maintained below this level. This demo
board uses a 16 V capacitor on the output limiting its use to
16 V. The NCV8502’s capability extends up to 60 V, but
should be avoided here to prevent damage to the capacitor.
Connection to the parts Flag/Monitor function has been
made available via two external posts on the board. The
intention of this function is to provide an early warning
signal to the microprocessor that there is an impending reset
that will occur, and the microprocessor should finish its
current instruction. This comparator may also be used as a
general use comparator. The positive input terminal is
connected to the parts temperature stable reference (refer to
the NCV8502/D data sheet for details).
This demonstration board is also a valid evaluation
constituent for evaluation of the NCV8501 series of parts.

OPERATION GUIDELINES
• There is no current limiting for the MJD31C. Do not
•
•
•
•
• A minimum 10 mA load is required for this board for
overstress the device.
Consider your power dissipation before running tests.
The VADJ reference voltage is typically 1.20 V. Design
your output voltage around that voltage.
Thermal effects will affect the potentiometer at a
different rate than the discrete surface mount resistors.
The output capacitor C1 is rated at 16 V. Maintain
operation below this level.
•
stability considerations. Your output capacitor value
may differ depending on board layout and loading.
Your capacitor value may actually decrease with the
removal of the trim potentiometer.
R4 is mounted under the board across the
potentiometer. Alternatively, R3 and R4 may be
replaced by a single 250 k potentiometer, but doing so
may not show the full range of output voltage.
BOARD USE
Simply connect a power supply from VIN to ground in
addition to your load (10 mA minimum) on VOUT to ground.
Turning the adjustment screw of the potentiometer will
move your output voltage to the voltage extremes of 2.5 V
and 10 V.
Using the flag/monitor function will require a pull−up
resistor on the FLAG output as it is an open collector output.
Switching of the FLAG output will occur as the voltage
threshold on the monitor (MON) input is crossed at about
1.20 V.
