DC679A - Demo Manual

QUICK START GUIDE FOR DC679
DUAL OUTPUT CONVERTER
LT3463EDD
DESCRIPTION
Demonstration circuit 679 features the LT3463EDD in
two circuits. One circuit is optimized for small size and
the other for high performance. Both circuits are dual
output ±20V voltage regulators. The positive regulator is
a boost converter and the negative rail is an inverting
charge pump. Refer to Tables 1 and 2 for details on performance.
The intended application of the DC679 is portable applications where reduced parts count, small circuit size and
high efficiency is important. The Burst Mode operation
of the LT3463EDD allows for high efficiency over a broad
range of loads and low quiescent current. Parts count is
reduced by the integrated schottky diodes and the low
current limit and low off time allows small inductors and
capacitors to be used.
Design files for this circuit board are available. Call
the LTC factory.

QUICK START PROCEDURE
Demonstration circuit 679 is easy to set up to evaluate
the performance of the LT3463EDD. Refer to Figure 1 for
proper measurement equipment setup and follow the
procedure below:
4.
Apply the full rated load to the outputs for an input
voltage of 3.6V. For the small size circuit this is 7mA
and for the high performance circuit this is 9mA. The
rails should still be within regulation.
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.
5.
With full rated load applied and with the input voltage
still at 3.6V, measure the input current. For the small
size circuit, the input current should be less than
140mA and for the high performance circuit, the input
current should be less than 150mA.
6.
Once the proper output voltages are established, adjust the loads within the operating range and observe
the output voltage regulation, ripple voltage and other
parameters.
1.
Make sure the SHDN pins are in the ON position.
2.
Turn on the input voltage source and set it to 3.6V.
3.
Monitor the output voltage. |VOUT| for both the positive and negative rails of the small size and high performance circuits should be 20V ± 4%.
