DEMO MANUAL DC1726
LTC3618EUF
Dual ±3A Synchronous Buck
Regulator for DDR Termination
DESCRIPTION
Demonstration circuit 1726 is a dual high efficiency
monolithic step-down (buck) DC/DC switching regulator
designed for double-data-rate (DDR) memory termination in computer systems. The VDDQ output is capable
of sourcing and sinking up to 3A with output voltages of
1.5V, 1.8V, 2.5V plus an optional voltage, selected using
jumpers. The VTT output can also source and sink up
to 3A with an output voltage equal to half of the VDDQ
voltage, half of the input voltage or half of an externally
applied voltage, selected using a jumper. An additional low
current output (VTTR) equal to the VTT voltage capable of
sourcing and sinking up to 10mA is included. Input voltage
range is from 2.25V to 5.5V with overvoltage protection
for transients exceeding 6.5V. Switching frequency is set
to 1MHz although it can be programmed up to 4MHz and
can be synchronized to an external clock for noise sensitive applications.
Jumpers are included for selecting either internal or external compensation and jumpers for low quiescent current
shutdown for each regulator. Other jumpers allow selecting internal or external soft-start, selecting the switching
PERFORMANCE SUMMARY
PARAMETERS
phase between the two regulators and selecting external
frequency synchronizing, and forced continuous or pulse
skipping modes of operation for the VDDQ regulator only.
Terminals are provided for connecting an input supply,
output loads and voltmeters. Other terminals include
external sync input, external reference input, external
tracking input, and separate power good outputs that
pull low at start-up and when the VDDQ or VTT output is
outside a voltage window.
The LTC®3618 used on this board is housed in a 24-pin 4mm
× 4mm thermally enhanced QFN package. The LTC3618
is also available in a 24-pin TSSOP package.
The LTC3618 data sheet gives a complete description of
the part, operation and application information and should
be read in conjunction with this quick start guide.

QUICK START PROCEDURE
Demonstration circuit 1726 allows the user to quickly
evaluate the performance of the LTC3618. Refer to Figure 2
for proper measurement equipment setup and follow the
procedure below
7. Verify that the VTT output voltage is equal to the VTTR
voltage ±6mV. The error voltage can be read differentially
by placing the meter leads between the VTTR and VTT
terminals
1. Place jumpers in the following positions.
8. To evaluate sourcing current from VDDQ or VTT outputs,
connect a suitable 10W load in series with an ammeter
between each output terminal and ground. Resistor.
See Figure 2 for resistor connections and resistor value
equation. Verify that the output voltages still meet the
specifications shown in the Performance Summary
section.

2. With the input power supply turned down and switched
off, connect the supply and digital voltmeters as shown
in Figure 2.
3. Switch on the input supply and adjust for approximately
3.3V on VIN.
4. Verify that the VDDQ output voltage is within the limits shown in the table on page 1 for each of the three
output voltages as selected by JP1, JP2 and JP2. Note:
moving the jumper to JP3 sets VDDQ to the internal
reference voltage of 600mV. Other output voltages can
be programmed by selecting a suitable resistor for R9.
5. To verify VDDQ output voltage tracking. Move JP5 to the
TRACK position (upper) and remove all VOUT1 SELECT
jumpers. Apply an external reference voltage between
100mV and 600mV to TRACK1 terminal. Verify that the
VDDQ output is within ±11mV of the external reference
voltage.
6. Move JP5 to the INT SS position (lower) and place
a jumper on JP2 (1.8V). Verify that the VTTR output
voltage is equal to VDDQ • 0.5 ±2%. Additional VDDQ
voltages can be selected using JP1 or JP3.
9. To evaluate sinking current into the VTT output, connect
a suitable 10W load resistor in series with an ammeter
between the VTT output and the VIN terminals. Verify
that the output voltages meet the specifications in the
Performance Summary section.
The many jumpers on this board allow the user to evaluate
the various features of the LTC3618. Jumpers are used to
select VDDQ output voltages, switch phasing, soft-start,
tracking, on/off, operating mode and compensation. Refer
to the data sheet for information on these functions.
Extra pads are located on the top and bottom of the board
for adding additional input and output capacitors if desired.
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 1 for proper scope
probe technique.
