ACT4515 Active-Semi Rev 4, 21-Jul-11 FUNCTIONAL BLOCK DIAGRAM FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION regulating output voltage to regulating output current, and the output voltage will drop with increasing load. CV/CC Loop Regulation As seen in Functional Block Diagram, the ACT4515 is a peak current mode pulse width modulation (PWM) converter with CC and CV control. The converter operates as follows: The Oscillator normally switches at 210kHz. However, if FB voltage is less than 0.6V, then the switching frequency decreases until it reaches a typical value of 30kHz at VFB = 0.15V. A switching cycle starts when the rising edge of the Oscillator clock output causes the High-Side Power Switch to turn on and the Low-Side Power Switch to turn off. With the SW side of the inductor now connected to IN, the inductor current ramps up to store energy in the magnetic field. The inductor current level is measured by the Current Sense Amplifier and added to the Oscillator ramp signal. If the resulting summation is higher than the COMP voltage, the output of the PWM Comparator goes high. When this happens or when Oscillator clock output goes low, the High-Side Power Switch turns off. Enable Pin The ACT4515 has an enable input EN for turning the IC on or off. The EN pin contains a precision 0.8V comparator with 75mV hysteresis and a 4µA pull-up current source. The comparator can be used with a resistor divider from VIN to program a startup voltage higher than the normal UVLO value. It can be used with a resistor divider from VOUT to disable charging of a deeply discharged battery, or it can be used with a resistor divider containing a thermistor to provide a temperature-dependent shutoff protection for over temperature battery. The thermistor should be thermally coupled to the battery pack for this usage. At this point, the SW side of the inductor swings to a diode voltage below ground, causing the inductor current to decrease and magnetic energy to be transferred to output. This state continues until the cycle starts again. The High-Side Power Switch is driven by logic using HSB as the positive rail. This pin is charged to VSW + 5V when the Low-Side Power Switch turns on. The COMP voltage is the integration of the error between FB input and the internal 0.808V reference. If FB is lower than the reference voltage, COMP tends to go higher to increase current to the output. Output current will increase until it reaches the CC limit set by the ISET resistor. At this point, the device will transition from Innovative PowerTM If left floating, the EN pin will be pulled up to roughly 5V by the internal 4µA current source. It can be driven from standard logic signals greater than 0.8V, or driven with open-drain logic to provide digital on/off control. Thermal Shutdown The ACT4515 disables switching when its junction temperature exceeds 155°C and resumes when the temperature has dropped by 20°C. -5- www.active-semi.com Copyright © 2011 Active-Semi, Inc. ACT4515 Active-Semi Rev 4, 21-Jul-11 APPLICATIONS INFORMATION CC Current Line Compensation Output Voltage Setting When operating at constant current mode, the current limit increase slightly with input voltage. For wide input voltage applications, a resistor RC is added to compensate line change and keep output high CC accuracy, as shown in Figure 3. Figure 1: Output Voltage Setting VOUT Figure 3: RFB1 ACT4515 Iutput Line Compensation FB VIN RFB2 IN Rc Figure 1 shows the connections for setting output voltage. Select the proper ratio of the feedback resistors RFB1 and RFB2 based on output voltage. Typically, use RFB2 ≈ 10kΩ determine RFB1 from the following equation: ⎛ V ⎞ RFB1 = RFB2 ⎜ OUT −1⎟ ⎝ 0.808V ⎠ the two the and ACT4515 ISET RISET Inductor Selection (1) The inductor maintains a continuous current to the output load. This inductor current has a ripple that is dependent on the inductance value: CC Current Setting ACT4515 constant current value is set by a resistor connected between the ISET pin and GND. The CC output current is linearly proportional to the current flowing out of the ISET pin. The voltage at ISET is roughly 1V and the current gain from ISET to output is roughly 25000 (25mA/1µA). To determine the proper resistor for a desired current, please refer to Figure 2 below. Higher inductance reduces the peak-to-peak ripple current. The trade off for high inductance value is the increase in inductor core size and series resistance, and the reduction in current handling capability. In general, select an inductance value L based on ripple current requirement: L= Figure 2: VOUT × (VIN _VOUT ) VIN fSW ILOADMAX K RIPPLE (2) Curve for Programming Output CC Current where VIN is the input voltage, VOUT is the output voltage, fSW is the switching frequency, ILOADMAX is the maximum load current, and KRIPPLE is the ripple factor. Typically, choose KRIPPLE = 30% to correspond to the peak-to-peak ripple current being 30% of the maximum load current.

The maximum output current is calculated as: IOUTMAX = ILIM _ right next to the IC. Output Capacitor 1 I _ 2 LPK PK The output capacitor also needs to have low ESR to keep low output voltage ripple. The output ripple voltage is: (5) LLIM is the internal current limit, which is typically 2.5A, as shown in Electrical Characteristics Table. VRIPPLE = IOUTMAX K RIPPLE RESR + External High Voltage Bias Diode It is recommended that an external High Voltage Bias diode be added when the system has a 5V fixed input or the power supply generates a 5V output. This helps improve the efficiency of the regulator. The High Voltage Bias diode can be a low cost one such as IN4148 or BAT54. 2 28 × fSW LC OUT (6) where IOUTMAX is the maximum output current, KRIPPLE is the ripple factor, RESR is the ESR of the output capacitor, fSW is the switching frequency, L is the inductor value, and COUT is the output capacitance. In the case of ceramic output capacitors, RESR is very small and does not contribute to the ripple. Therefore, a lower capacitance value can be used for ceramic type. In the case of tantalum or electrolytic capacitors, the ripple is dominated by RESR multiplied by the ripple current. In that case, the output capacitor is chosen to have sufficiently low ESR. Figure 4: External High Voltage Bias Diode 5V For ceramic output capacitor, typically choose a capacitance of about 22µF. For tantalum or electrolytic capacitors, choose a capacitor with less than 50mΩ ESR. HSB ACT4515 VIN 10nF Rectifier Diode SW Use a Schottky diode as the rectifier to conduct current when the High-Side Power Switch is off. The Schottky diode must have current rating higher than the maximum output current and a reverse voltage rating higher than the maximum input voltage. This diode is also recommended for high duty cycle operation and high output voltage applications. Input Capacitor The input capacitor needs to be carefully selected to maintain sufficiently low ripple at the supply input of the converter. A low ESR capacitor is highly recommended. Since large current flows in and out of this capacitor during switching, its ESR also affects efficiency. The input capacitance needs to be higher than 10µF. The best choice is the ceramic type, however, low ESR tantalum or electrolytic types may also be used provided that the RMS ripple current rating is higher than 50% of the output current. The input capacitor should be placed close to the IN and G pins of the IC, with the shortest traces possible. In the case of tantalum or electrolytic types, they can be further away if a small parallel 0.1µF ceramic capacitor is placed Innovative PowerTM -7- www.active-semi.com Copyright © 2011 Active-Semi, Inc.
