DC1158A - Demo Manual

QUICK START GUIDE FOR DEMONSTRATION CIRCUIT 1158A
MONOLITHIC SYNCHRONOUS BUCK REGULATOR
LTC3564
DESCRIPTION
Demonstration circuit DC1158A is a high efficiency
monolithic synchronous buck regulator using a
constant frequency, current mode architecture featuring LTC3564. Its high switching frequency of
2.25MHz allows the use of small surface mount
inductors and capacitors. Supply current during
operation is only 20uA dropping to below 1uA in
shutdown. The 2.5V to 5.5V input voltage range
Table 1.
makes the LTC3564 ideally suited for single Li-Ion
battery-powered or 3.3V to 5V input voltage applications. 100% duty cycle provides low dropout
operation, extending battery life in portable systems. Automatic Burst Mode® operation increases
efficiency at light loads, further extending battery
runtime. Gerber files for this circuit are available. Call the LTC Factory.

QUICK START PROCEDURE
The DC1158A is easy to set up to evaluate the
performance of the LTC3564. For a proper
measurement equipment configuration, set up
the circuit according to the diagram in Figure 2.
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 the Measurement Equipment Setup diagram in Figure 1 for proper scope probe
technique.
Please follow the procedure outlined below for
proper operation.
1. Connect the input power supply to the VIN
and GND terminals. Connect the load between
the VOUT and GND terminals. Refer to Figure 2
for the proper measurement equipment setup.
2. Before proceeding to operation, insert
jumper shunt XJP1 into the OFF position and
insert jumper shunt into XJP2, XJP3 or XJP4
for voltages of 1.2V, 1.5V or 1.8V respectively.
Set the load output current to less than 1.25A.
An optional output voltage can be set by populating resistor RFB6, removing RFB5 and moving the shunt jumper to JP5.
3. Apply 5V at VIN. Measure VOUT; it should
read 0V. If desired, one can measure the shutdown supply current at this point. The supply current will be about 1 µA in shutdown.
4. Turn on VOUT by changing shunt XJP1 from
the OFF position to the ON position. The output voltage should measure according to the

voltage set by the shunt jumper in XJP2, XJP3
or XJP4.
5. Vary the input voltage between 2.5V and
5.5V and the output voltage should be within +/0.4% tolerance.
Warning - If the power for the demo board is carried in long leads, the input voltage at the part
could “ring”, which could affect the operation of
the circuit or even exceed the maximum voltage
rating of the IC. To eliminate the ringing, insert a

small tantalum capacitor (for instance, AVX part
# TAJW686M010) on the pads between the input power and return terminals on the bottom of
the demo board. The (greater) ESR of the tantalum will 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.
