DC1520A - Demo Manual

DEMO MANUAL DC1520A
LT3690:
36V/4A µPower Synchronous
Buck Regulator
DESCRIPTION
The current mode control scheme creates fast transient
response and good loop stability. The driver of the internal HS switch is boosted to a voltage that is higher than
the VIN to ensure saturation of the switch. The LT3690’s
integrated boost diode and switches reduce the part
count. Meanwhile, the internal synchronous power switch
increases efficiency and eliminates the need for an external
Schottky catch diode. The EN pin can be used to set the
part in micro power shutdown mode, reducing the supply
current to less than 1μA.
must be read in conjunction with this demo manual for
demo circuit 1520A. The LT3690 is assembled in a 26-lead
plastic UFE package with two thermally enhanced pads for
SW and GND. Proper board layout is essential for both
proper operation and maximum thermal performance. See
the data sheet section PCB Layout and High Temperature
Considerations.

EFFICIENCY (%)
Demonstration circuit 1520A is a 36V, 4A synchronous
Buck Regulator with 70μA Quiescent Current featuring
the LT3690. The demo board is designed for 3.3V output
from a 4.5V to 36V input with transient up to 60V. The wide
input range of the LT3690 allows a variety of input sources,
such as automotive batteries and industrial supplies. The
switching frequency can be programmed either via oscillator resistor or external clock over a 170kHz to 1.5MHz
range. When the circuit is synchronized to an external
clock connected to the SYNC terminal, the RT resistor
(R5) should be chosen to set the LT3690 internal switching
frequency at least 20% below the lowest synchronization
input frequency. The modes of operation (fixed frequency
and Burst Mode®) are jumper selectable. The Burst Mode
operation increases the efficiency at light loads while fixed
frequency mode maintains a constant switching frequency
regardless of the load current.

QUICK START PROCEDURE
Demonstration circuit 1520A is easy to set up and evaluate the performance of the LT3690. Refer to Figure 2 for
proper measurement equipment setup and follow the
procedure below.
NOTE. When measuring the input or output voltage ripple,
care must be taken to avoid a long ground lead on the
oscilloscope probe. Measure the input or output voltage
ripple by touching the probe tip directly across the VIN or
VOUT and GND terminals.
1. Place jumpers in the following positions:
JP1: EN
JP2: Burst Mode
2. With power off, connect the input power supply to VIN
and GND.
3. Connect a load of 4A or less to VOUT and GND terminals.
4. Turn on the power at the input.
NOTE. Make sure that the input voltage does not
exceed 36V.
5. Check for the proper output voltage (3.3V).
NOTE. If there is no output, temporarily disconnect the
load to make sure that the load is not set too high.
6. Once the proper output voltage is established, adjust the
load and input within the operating ranges and observe
the output voltage regulation, ripple voltage, efficiency
and other parameters.
7. An external clock can be added to the SYNC terminal
when SYNC function is used (JP2 open). Please make
sure that the SYNC frequency is at least 20% higher
than the set switching frequency. See the data sheet
section Synchronization.
