LM2766 Switched Capacitor Voltage Converter General Description Features The LM2766 CMOS charge-pump voltage converter operates as a voltage doubler for an input voltage in the range of +1.8V to +5.5V. Two low cost capacitors and a diode are used in this circuit to provide up to 20 mA of output current. The LM2766 operates at 200 kHz switching frequency to reduce output resistance and voltage ripple. With an operating current of only 350 µA (operating efficiency greater than 90% with most loads) and 0.1µA typical shutdown current, the LM2766 provides ideal performance for battery powered systems.

Energy transfer and storage are provided by external capacitors. Figure 2 illustrates the voltage conversion scheme. When S2 and S4 are closed, C1 charges to the supply voltage V+. During this time interval, switches S1 and S3 are open. In the next time interval, S2 and S4 are open; at the same time, S1 and S3 are closed, the sum of the input voltage V+ and the voltage across C1 gives the 2V+ output voltage when there is no load. The output voltage drop when a load is added is determined by the parasitic resistance (Rds(on) of the MOSFET switches and the ESR of the capacitors) and the charge transfer loss between capacitors. Details will be discussed in the following application information section. where RSW is the sum of the ON resistance of the internal MOSFET switches shown in Figure 2. RSW is typically 8Ω for the LM2766. The peak-to-peak output voltage ripple is determined by the oscillator frequency as well as the capacitance and ESR of the output capacitor C2: High capacitance, low ESR capacitors can reduce both the output resistance and the voltage ripple. The Schottky diode D1 is only needed to protect the device from turning-on its own parasitic diode and potentially latching-up. During start-up, D1 will also quickly charge up the output capacitor to VIN minus the diode drop thereby decreasing the start-up time. Therefore, the Schottky diode D1 should have enough current carrying capability to charge the output capacitor at start-up, as well as a low forward voltage to prevent the internal parasitic diode from turning-on. A Schottky diode like 1N5817 can be used for most applications. If the input voltage ramp is less than 10V/ms, a smaller Schottky diode like MBR0520LT1 can be used to reduce the circuit size. DS101282-14 Shutdown Mode A shutdown (SD) pin is available to disable the device and reduce the quiescent current to 0.1 µA. In normal operating mode, the SD pin is connected to V+. The device can be brought into the shutdown mode by applying to the SD pin a voltage less than 20% of the V+ pin voltage. FIGURE 2. Voltage Doubling Principle Application Information Positive Voltage Doubler The main application of the LM2766 is to double the input voltage. The range of the input supply voltage is 1.8V to 5.5V. The output characteristics of this circuit can be approximated by an ideal voltage source in series with a resistance. The voltage source equals 2V+. The output resistance Rout is a function of the ON resistance of the internal MOSFET switches, the oscillator frequency, and the capacitance and ESR of C1 and C2. Since the switching current charging and discharging C1 is approximately twice as the output current, the effect of the ESR of the pumping capacitor C1 will be multiplied by four in the output resistance. The output capacitor C2 is charging and discharging at a current approximately equal to the output current, therefore, its ESR only counts once in the output resistance. A good approximation of Rout is: Capacitor Selection As discussed in the Positive Voltage Doubler section, the output resistance and ripple voltage are dependent on the capacitance and ESR values of the external capacitors. The output voltage drop is the load current times the output resistance, and the power efficiency is Where IQ(V+) is the quiescent power loss of the IC device, and IL2Rout is the conversion loss associated with the switch on-resistance, the two external capacitors and their ESRs. The selection of capacitors is based on the specifications of the dropout voltage (which equals Iout Rout), the output voltage ripple, and the converter efficiency. Low ESR capacitors (Table 1) are recommended to maximize efficiency, reduce the output voltage drop and voltage ripple. TABLE 1. Low ESR Capacitor Manufacturers Phone Website Nichicon Corp.

Each device must have its own pumping capacitor C1, while only one output capacitor Cout is needed as shown in Figure 3. The composite output resistance is: DS101282-19 FIGURE 3. Lowering Output Resistance by Paralleling Devices Cascading Devices Rout = 1.5Rout_1 + Rout_2 Cascading the LM2766s is an easy way to produce a greater voltage (A two-stage cascade circuit is shown in Figure 4). The effective output resistance is equal to the weighted sum of each individual device: Note that increasing the number of cascading stages is pracitically limited since it significantly reduces the efficiency, increases the output resistance and output voltage ripple.
