ETC CS5156HGD16

The CS5156H is a 5–bit nonsynchronous N–Channel buck
controller. It is designed to provide unprecedented transient response
for today’s demanding high–density, high–speed logic. The regulator
operates using a proprietary control method, which allows a 100 ns
response time to load transients. The CS5156H is designed to operate
over a 4.25–20 V range (VCC) using 12 V to power the IC and 5.0 V or
12 V as the main supply for conversion.
The CS5156H is specifically designed to power Pentium II
processors and other high performance core logic. It includes the
following features: on board, 5–bit DAC, short circuit protection,
1.0% output tolerance, VCC monitor, and programmable Soft Start
capability. The CS5156H is backwards compatible with the 4–bit
CS5151, allowing the mother board designer the capability of using
either the CS5151 or the CS5156H with no change in layout. The
CS5156H is available in 16 pin surface mount packages.

VID0–VID4
Voltage ID DAC input pins. These pins are internally pulled up to 5.0 V providing logic ones if left open. VID4 selects the DAC range. When VID4 is High
(logic one), the DAC range is 2.14 V to 3.54 V with 100 mV increments.
When VID4 is Low (logic zero), the DAC range is 1.34 V to 2.09 V with 50
mV increments. VID0 – VID4 select the desired DAC output voltage. Leaving
all 5 DAC input pins open results in a DAC output voltage of 1.244 V, allowing for adjustable output voltage, using a traditional resistor divider.

V2 Control Method
C
The V2 method of control uses a ramp signal that is
generated by the ESR of the output capacitors. This ramp is
proportional to the AC current through the main inductor
and is offset by the value of the DC output voltage. This
control scheme inherently compensates for variation in
either line or load conditions, since the ramp signal is
generated from the output voltage itself. This control
scheme inherently compensates for variation in either line or
load conditions, since the ramp signal is generated from the
output voltage itself. This control scheme differs from
traditional techniques such as voltage mode, which
generates an artificial ramp, and current mode, which
generates a ramp from inductor current.

Reference
Voltage
CS5156H
The V2 control method is illustrated in Figure 3. The
output voltage is used to generate both the error signal and
the ramp signal. Since the ramp signal is simply the output
voltage, it is affected by any change in the output regardless
of the origin of that change. The ramp signal also contains
the DC portion of the output voltage, which allows the
control circuit to drive the main switch to 0% or 100% duty
cycle as required.
A change in line voltage changes the current ramp in the
inductor, affecting the ramp signal, which causes the V2
control scheme to compensate the duty cycle. Since the
change in inductor current modifies the ramp signal, as in
current mode control, the V2 control scheme has the same
advantages in line transient response.
A change in load current will have an affect on the output
voltage, altering the ramp signal. A load step immediately
changes the state of the comparator output, which controls
the main switch. Load transient response is determined only
by the comparator response time and the transition speed of
the main switch. The reaction time to an output load step has
no relation to the crossover frequency of the error signal
loop, as in traditional control methods.
The error signal loop can have a low crossover frequency,
since transient response is handled by the ramp signal loop.
The main purpose of this ‘slow’ feedback loop is to provide
DC accuracy. Noise immunity is significantly improved,
since the error amplifier bandwidth can be rolled off at a low
frequency. Enhanced noise immunity improves remote
sensing of the output voltage, since the noise associated with
long feedback traces can be effectively filtered.
Line and load regulation are drastically improved because
there are two independent voltage loops. A voltage mode
controller relies on a change in the error signal to
compensate for a deviation in either line or load voltage.
This change in the error signal causes the output voltage to
change corresponding to the gain of the error amplifier,
which is normally specified as line and load regulation. A
current mode controller maintains fixed error signal under
deviation in the line voltage, since the slope of the ramp
signal changes, but still relies on a change in the error signal
for a deviation in load. The V2 method of control maintains
a fixed error signal for both line and load variation, since the
ramp signal is affected by both line and load.
Constant off time provides a number of advantages.
Switch duty cycle can be adjusted from 0 to 100% on a pulse
by pulse basis when responding to transient conditions. Both
0% and 100% duty cycle operation can be maintained for
extended periods of time in response to load or line
transients. PWM slope compensation to avoid
sub–harmonic oscillations at high duty cycles is avoided.
Switch on time is limited by an internal 30 µs timer,
minimizing stress to the power components.
Programmable Output
The CS5156H is designed to provide two methods for
programming the output voltage of the power supply. A five
bit on board digital to analog converter (DAC) is used to
program the output voltage within two different ranges. The
first range is 2.14 V to 3.54 V in 100 mV steps, the second
is 1.34 V to 2.09 V in 50 mV steps, depending on the digital
input code. If all five bits are left open, the CS5156H enters
adjust mode. In adjust mode, the designer can choose any
output voltage by using resistor divider feedback to the VFB
and VFFB pins, as in traditional controllers. The CS5156H
is specifically designed to be backwards compatible with the
CS5151H, which uses a four bit DAC code.
Start Up
Until the voltage on the VCC1 supply pin exceeds the 3.9 V
monitor threshold, the Soft Start and gate pins are held low.
The FAULT latch is reset (no Fault condition). The output
of the error amplifier (COMP) is pulled up to 1.0 V by the
comparator clamp. When the VCC1 pin exceeds the monitor
threshold, the GATE output is activated, and the Soft Start
capacitor begins charging. The GATE output will remain on,
enabling the NFET switch, until terminated by either the
PWM comparator, or the maximum on time timer.
If the maximum on time is exceeded before the regulator
output voltage achieves the 1.0 V level, the pulse is
terminated. The GATE pin drives low for the duration of the
extended off time. This time is set by the time out timer and
is approximately equal to the maximum on time, resulting in
a 50% duty cycle. Then, the GATE pin will drive high, and
the cycle repeats.
When regulator output voltage achieves the 1.0 V level
present at the COMP pin, regulation has been achieved and
normal off time will ensue. The PWM comparator
terminates the switch on time, with off time set by the COFF
capacitor. The V2 control loop will adjust switch duty cycle
as required to ensure the regulator output voltage tracks the
output of the error amplifier.
The Soft Start and COMP capacitors will charge to their
final levels, providing a controlled turn on of the regulator
output. Regulator turn on time is determined by the COMP
capacitor charging to its final value. Its voltage is limited by
Constant Off Time
To maximize transient response, the CS5156H uses a
constant off time method to control the rate of output pulses.
During normal operation, the off time of the high side switch
is terminated after a fixed period, set by the COFF capacitor.
To maintain regulation, the V2 control loop varies switch on
time. The PWM comparator monitors the output voltage
ramp, and terminates the switch on time.

During normal operation, switch off time is constant and
set by the COFF capacitor. Switch on time is adjusted by the
V2 control loop to maintain regulation. This results in
changes in regulator switching frequency, duty cycle, and
output ripple in response to changes in load and line. Output
voltage ripple will be determined by inductor ripple current
working into the ESR of the output capacitors (see Figures
7 and 8).

If the input voltage rises quickly, or the regulator output
is enabled externally, output voltage will increase to the
level set by the error amplifier output more rapidly, usually
within a couple of cycles (see Figure 6).

level, the output capacitor is pre–positioned –40 mV (see
Figures 9, 10, and 11). For best transient response, a
combination of a number of high frequency and bulk output
capacitors are usually used.
If the maximum on time is exceeded while responding to
a sudden increase in load current, a normal off time occurs
to prevent saturation of the output inductor.

Transient Response
The CS5156H V2 control loop’s 100 ns reaction time
provides unprecedented transient response to changes in
input voltage or output current. Pulse by pulse adjustment of
duty cycle is provided to quickly ramp the inductor current
to the required level. Since the inductor current cannot be
changed instantaneously, regulation is maintained by the
output capacitor(s) during the time required to slew the
inductor current.
Overall load transient response is further improved
through a feature called “adaptive voltage positioning”. This
technique pre–positions the output capacitor’s voltage to
reduce total output voltage excursions during changes in
load.
Holding tolerance to 1.0% allows the error amplifier’s
reference voltage to be targeted +40 mV high without
compromising DC accuracy. A “droop resistor”,
implemented through a PC board trace, connects the error
amplifier’s feedback pin (VFB) to the output capacitors and
load and carries the output current. With no load, there is no
DC drop across this resistor, producing an output voltage
tracking the error amplifier’s, including the +40 mV offset.
When the full load current is delivered, an 80 mV drop is
developed across this resistor. This results in output voltage
being offset –40 mV low.
The result of adaptive voltage positioning is that
additional margin is provided for a load transient before
reaching the output voltage specification limits. When load
current suddenly increases from its minimum level, the
output capacitor is pre–positioned +40 mV. Conversely,
when load current suddenly decreases from its maximum

PROTECTION AND MONITORING FEATURES
VCC1 Monitor
To maintain predictable startup and shutdown
characteristics an internal VCC1 monitor circuit is used to
prevent the part from operating below 3.75 V minimum
startup. The VCC1 monitor comparator provides hysteresis
and guarantees a 3.70 V minimum shutdown threshold.
Short Circuit Protection
A lossless hiccup mode short circuit protection feature is
provided, requiring only the Soft Start capacitor to
implement. If a short circuit condition occurs (VFFB < 1.0 V),
the VFFB low comparator sets the FAULT latch. This causes
the MOSFET to shut off, disconnecting the regulator from
it’s input voltage. The Soft Start capacitor is then slowly
discharged by a 2.0 µA current source until it reaches it’s
lower 0.7 V threshold. The regulator will then attempt to
restart normally, operating in it’s extended off time mode
with a 50% duty cycle, while the Soft Start capacitor is
charged with a 60 µA charge current.
If the short circuit condition persists, the regulator output
will not achieve the 1.0 V low VFFB comparator threshold
before the Soft Start capacitor is charged to it’s upper 2.5 V
threshold. If this happens the cycle will repeat itself until the
short is removed. The Soft Start charge/discharge current
ratio sets the duty cycle for the pulses (2.0 µA/60 µA =
3.3%), while actual duty cycle is half that due to the
extended off time mode (1.65%).
This protection feature results in less stress to the
regulator components, input power supply, and PC board

Overvoltage protection (OVP) is provided as result of the
normal operation of the V2 control topology and requires no
additional external components. The control loop responds
to an overvoltage condition within 100 ns, causing the top

Selecting External Components
External Power Good Circuit
The CS5156H can be used with a wide range of external
power components to optimize the cost and performance of
a particular design. The following information can be used
as general guidelines to assist in their selection.
An optional Power Good signal can be generated through
the use of four additional external components (see Figure
15). The threshold voltage of the Power Good signal can be
adjusted per the following equation:
VPower Good +
(R1 ) R2) 0.65 V
R2
NFET Power Transistors
Both logic level and standard MOSFETs can be used. The
reference designs derive gate drive from the 12 V supply
which is generally available in most computer systems and
use logic level MOSFETs. A charge pump may be easily
implemented to permit use of standard MOSFETs or support
5.0 V or 12 V only systems (maximum of 20 V). Multiple
MOSFETs may be paralleled to reduce losses and improve
efficiency and thermal management.
Voltage applied to the MOSFET gates depends on the
application circuit used. The gate driver output is specified
to drive to within 1.5 V of ground when in the low state and
to within 2.0 V of its bias supply when in the high state. In
practice, the MOSFET gates will be driven rail to rail due to
overshoot caused by the capacitive load they present to the
controller IC. For the typical application where VCC1 =
VCC2 = 12 V and 5.0 V is used as the source for the regulator
output current, the following gate drive is provided;
This circuit provides an open collector output that drives
the Power Good output to ground for regulator voltages less
than VPower Good.

“Droop” Resistor for Adaptive Voltage Positioning
Adaptive voltage positioning is used to reduce output
voltage excursions during abrupt changes in load current.
Regulator output voltage is offset +40 mV when the
regulator is unloaded, and –40 mV at full load. This results
in increased margin before encountering minimum and
maximum transient voltage limits, allowing use of less
capacitance on the regulator output (see Figure 9).
To implement adaptive voltage positioning, a “droop”
resistor must be connected between the output inductor and
output capacitors and load. This is normally implemented by
a PC board trace of the following value:
RDROOP + 80 mV
IMAX
M 1.00 µs
Adaptive voltage positioning can be disabled for
improved DC regulation by connecting the VFB pin directly
to the load using a separate, non–load current carrying
circuit trace.

Input and Output Capacitors
The most important aspect of MOSFET performance is
RDSON, which effects regulator efficiency and MOSFET
thermal management requirements.
The power dissipated by the MOSFETs and the Schottky
diode may be estimated as follows;
Switching MOSFET:
Power + ILOAD2
RDSON
These components must be selected and placed carefully
to yield optimal results. Capacitors should be chosen to
provide acceptable ripple on the input supply lines and
regulator output voltage. Key specifications for input
capacitors are their ripple rating, while ESR is important for
output capacitors. For best transient response, a combination
of low value/high frequency and bulk capacitors placed
close to the load will be required.

THERMAL MANAGEMENT

Thermal Considerations for Power
MOSFETs and Diodes
4848.5
In order to maintain good reliability, the junction
temperature of the semiconductor components should be
kept to a maximum of 150°C or lower. The thermal
impedance (junction to ambient) required to meet this
requirement can be calculated as follows:
When the VFFB pin is less than 1.0 V, the current charging
the COFF capacitor is reduced. The extended off time can be
calculated as follows:
TOFF + COFF
24, 242.5
Off time will be determined by either the TOFF time, or the
time out timer, whichever is longer.
The preceding equations for duty cycle can also be used
to calculate the regulator switching frequency and select the
COFF timing capacitor:

A heatsink may be added to TO–220 components to

EMI Management
RTRACE + 80 mV
IMAX
As a consequence of large currents being turned on and off
at high frequency, switching regulators generate noise as a
consequence of their normal operation. When designing for
compliance with EMI/EMC regulations, additional
components may be added to reduce noise emissions. These
components are not required for regulator operation and
experimental results may allow them to be eliminated. The
input filter inductor may not be required because bulk filter
and bypass capacitors, as well as other loads located on the
board will tend to reduce regulator di/dt effects on the circuit
board and input power supply. Placement of the power
component to minimize routing distance will also help to
reduce emissions.
This causes the output voltage to be +40 mV with no
load, and –40 mV with a full load, improving regulator
transient response. This trace must be wide enough to
carry the full output current. (Typical trace is 1.0 inch
long, 0.17 inch wide). Care should be taken to
minimize any additional losses after the feedback
connection point to maximize regulation.
7. If DC regulation is to be optimized (at the expense of
degraded transient regulation), adaptive voltage
positioning can be disabled by connecting to VFB pin
directly to the load with a separate trace (remote
sense).
8. Place 5.0 V input capacitors close to the switching
MOSFET.
Route gate drive signals VGATE (pin 10) with a trace
that is a minimum of 0.025 inches wide.

1. Place 12 V filter capacitor next to the IC and connect

and connect it’s ground terminal with a separate, wide
trace directly to pin 14 (LGND).
4. Connect the ground terminals of the Compensation
capacitor directly to the ground of the fast feedback
filter capacitor to prevent common mode noise from
effecting the PWM comparator.
5. Place the output filter capacitor(s) as close to the load
as possible and connect the ground terminal to pin 14
(LGND).
