DEMO MANUAL DC1504A
LT4180
Virtual Remote Sense Controller
DESCRIPTION
Demonstration circuit 1504A features the LT4180, a virtual
remote sense controller which eliminates the need for
remote sense wires to compensate for IR losses in cables
and wires, and is used in conjunction with the LT3693
buck converter. The circuit is designed for an input voltage
range of 8V to 36V with an output of 5V at 3A. The circuit
board has a total wire resistance of 0.4Ω and a voltage
drop of 1.2V. The circuit contains five selectable jumpers.
JP1 turns the converter ON or Off, JP2-JP4 allow for easy
selection of other dither frequency combinations, and

QUICK START PROCEDURE
Demonstration circuit 1504A is easy to set up to evaluate the performance of the LT4180. Refer to Figure 2 for
proper equipment setup and follow the procedure below.
When input or output voltage ripple is measured, 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. See Figure 2 for proper scope probe
technique.
1. Place jumpers in the following position:
JP1 On
JP2 Low
JP3 High
JP4 High
JP5 Low

QUICK START PROCEDURE
2. With power off, connect the input power supply to VIN
and GND.
NOTE. If there is no output, temporarily disconnect the
load to make sure that the load is not set too high.
Apply 8V to input.
Once the proper output voltage is established, adjust the
input voltage and load within the operating range and
observe the output voltage regulation, ripple voltage, efficiency and other parameters.
Check for the proper output voltage.
