QUICK START GUIDE FOR DEMONSTRATION CIRCUIT 701
DUAL SYNCHRONOUS, 600MA, 1.5MHZ STEP-DOWN DC/DC REGULATOR
LTC3407
DESCRIPTION
Demonstration circuit 701 is a Dual Synchronous,
600mA, 1.5MHz Step-Down DC/DC Regulator featuring the LTC 3407. The DC701 has an input voltage
range of 2.5V to 5.5V, and either output is capable of
delivering up to 600mA of output current. In Burst
Mode operation, the LTC3407 requires only 40 uA
of quiescent current, and the DC701 provides higher
efficiency at light load currents. In Pulse Skip mode,
the DC701 provides lower output ripple voltage at
light load currents. In either mode, the DC701 can
provide up to 96% efficiency on either channel and
consumes less than 1uA in shutdown. The LTC3407
comes in a small 10-Pin DFN package, which has an
exposed pad on the bottom-side of the IC for better
thermal performance. These features, plus the nominal operating frequency of 1.5MHz (allowing the exclusive use of low profile surface mount components), make the DC701 demo board an ideal circuit
for use in battery-powered, hand-held applications.

QUICK START PROCEDURE
Demonstration circuit 701 is easy to set up to evaluate the performance of the LTC3407. Refer to Figure 1
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. See Figure
2 for proper scope probe technique.
Note: Capacitor C5 is an optional part. It was inserted on the DC701 to dampen the (possible) ringing
voltage due to the use of long input leads. On a normal, typical PCB, with short traces, the capacitor is
not needed.
1.
Connect the input power supply to the Vin and
GND terminals on the left-side of the board. Do
not hot-plug Vin or increase Vin over the rated
maximum supply voltage of 5.5V, or the part may
be damaged. Connect the loads between the Vout
and GND terminals on the right-side of the board.
Refer to Figure 1 for the proper measurement
equipment setup.
2.
Before proceeding to operation, insert jumpers JP1
and JP2 into the OFF positions, jumper JP3 into
the Vout1 voltage position of choice (1.2V, 1.5V,
and 1.8V), and jumper JP4 into the desired mode
of operation: Pulse Skip or Burst Mode.
3.
Apply 3.3V at Vin. Measure both Vouts; they
should read 0V. If desired, one can measure the
shutdown supply current at this point. The supply
current will be approximately 33 uA in shutdown,
with roughly 32 uA due to the optional 100 kΩ
pull-up resistor of the Power-On Reset (POR) feature. This resistor can be removed, and the actual
shutdown supply current (of approx. 1 uA) can be
measured, if the POR feature is not required.
4.
Turn on Vout1 and Vout2 by changing jumpers JP1
and JP2 from the OFF position(s) to the ON position(s). Vary the input voltage from 2.5V to 5.5V
and adjust each load current from 0 to 600mA.
Both output voltages should be regulating.
5.
Set the load current of both outputs between 200
mA and 600 mA, and measure both output ripple
voltages; they should measure less than 20 mVAC
each. Also, observe the voltage waveform at the
switch node (pin 3) of each regulator. The switching frequencies should be between 1.2 MHz and
1.8 MHz (T = 0.833 us and 0.555 us), and each
switch node waveform should be rectangular in
shape.
6.
To change the mode of operation, change jumpers
JP1 and JP2 from the ON position(s) to the OFF
position(s). Then change jumper JP4 to the alternative position. Re-insert jumpers JP1 and JP2
into the ON position(s). Observe the voltage waveform at both switch nodes.
When finished, insert jumpers JP1 and JP2
OFF position(s) and disconnect the power.

If more efficiency is desired from the Demo Circuit, replace the stock inductor, a Taiyo Yuden part #
LQLBC2518M2R2M, with a Murata inductor, # LQH32CN2R2M11. Due to its large size, the Murata inductor has
lower DCR than the Taiyo Yuden inductor, thus has less power dissipation.
