DEMO MANUAL DC1822A
LTC3861EUHE
High Current, Dual Output
Synchronous Buck Converter
Description
Demonstration circuit 1822A is a dual output synchronous
buck converter featuring the LTC®3861EUHE. The board
provides two outputs of 1.5V/25A and 1.2V/25A from
an input voltage of 7V to 14V at a switching frequency
of 500kHz. The power stage consists of a 6mm × 6mm
DrMOS and a 13mm × 13mm iron powder type inductor.
An on-board 5V LT®3470 buck regulator provides the 5V
bias for the LTC3861 and the DrMOS.
The demo board uses a high density, two sided drop-in
layout. The power components, excluding the bulk output
and input capacitors, fit within a 1.5" × 1.2" area on the
top layer. The control circuit fits in a 1.1" × 1.0" area on
the bottom layer. The package style for the LTC3861EUHE
is a 36-lead 5mm × 6mm QFN.

Quick Start Procedure
Demonstration circuit 1822A is easy to set up to evaluate
the performance of the LTC3861EUHE. Please refer to
Figure 1 for proper measurement equipment setup and
follow the procedure below.
1.With power off, connect the input supply, load and
meters, as shown in Figure 1. Preset the load to 0A
and VIN supply to be 0V. Place jumpers in the following
positions:
JP1RUN1
ON
JP2 RUN2
ON
JP3
ON
INT BIAS
2.Adjust the input voltage to be between 7V to 14V.
VOUT1 should be 1.5V ±2%.VOUT2 should be 1.2V ± 2%.

LOAD
3.Next, apply 25A load to each output and re-measure
VOUT.
4. Once the DC regulation is confirmed, observe the output
voltage ripple, load step response, efficiency and other
parameters.
NOTE 1. Use the BNC connectors labeled VOUT1 or
VOUT2 to measure the output voltage ripple.
NOTE 2. Do not apply the load from the VOS1+ turret to
the VOS1– turret or from the VOS2+ turret to the VOS2–
turret. These are connected to the sense traces for the
output voltage. Heavy load currents applied across these
turrets may damage these traces.

DYNAMIC LOAD CIRCUIT (OPTIONAL)
1.Preset the amplitude of a pulse generator to 0.0V and
the duty cycle to 5% or less.
2.Connect the scope to the VOUT BNC connectors for
the rail under test with a coax cable. To monitor the
load step current, connect the scope probe across the
ISTEP± turrets for that rail.
3. Connect the output of the pulse generator to the PULSE
GEN turret for the rail under test and connect the return
to one of the GND turrets.
4.With the converter running, slowly increase the amplitude of the pulse generator output to provide the desired
load step pulse height. The scaling for the load step
signal is 10mV/Amp. See Figures 4 and 5 for transient
response curves with a 50% load change.

SINGLE OUTPUT/DUAL PHASE OPERATION
A single output/dual phase converter may be preferred
for higher output current applications. The optional components required to tie the phases together are found on
the bottom of the schematic shown in Figure 8. To tie the
two outputs together, make the following modifications:
1.Stuff 0Ω at R36 and R47 to tie the two outputs together.
2.Select one rail to be the master.
• If VOUT1 is the master, then stuff 0Ω at R51 to disable
the error amplifier for phase 2. Also stuff 0Ω at R52.
• If VOUT2 is the master, then stuff 0Ω at R49 to disable
the error amplifier for phase 1. Also stuff 0Ω at R50.
3.Remove the 0Ω jumper at R13 and stuff a 100pF
capacitor at C14 for the IAVG signal.
4.Stuff 0Ω at R53, R48 and R54 to tie the COMP, TRK/SS
and RUN pins together.
5.Remove the redundant compensation components.
PARALLELING BOARDS
The DC1822A demo boards can be tied together to form a
converter with up to 12 phases. To tie the boards together,
place the boards side-by-side and then connect the boards
by connecting J8 of one board to J9 of the other. This
will connect the IAVG, COMP, TRK/SS and signal ground
signals together. Next, use copper strips to tie the VOUT
planes, the VIN planes and GND planes of the two adjacent
boards together. The board has exposed copper along the
edges of the board for this purpose. Figure 6 shows how
to set up a 4-phase converter and Figure 7 shows how to
set up a 3-phase plus single phase converter.
