Application and Implementation


Information in the following applications sections is not part of the TI component specification, and TI does not warrant its accuracy or completeness. TI’s customers are responsible for determining suitability of components for their purposes. Customers should validate and test their design implementation to confirm system functionality.

Application Information

The device is a typical step-down DC-DC converter for converting a higher dc voltage to a lower dc voltage with a maximum available output current of 5 A. The following design procedure can be used to select component values for the TPS565208. Alternately, the WEBENCH® software may be used to generate a complete design. The WEBENCH software uses an iterative design procedure and accesses a comprehensive database of components when generating a design. This section presents a simplified discussion of the design process.

Typical Application

The application schematic in Figure 14 shows the TPS565208 4.5-V to 17-V input, 1.05-V output converter design meeting the requirements for 5-A output. This circuit is available as the evaluation module (EVM). The sections provide the design procedure.

Output Voltage Resistors Selection

The output voltage is set with a resistor divider from the output node to the VFB pin. TI recommends to use 1% tolerance or better divider resistors. Start by using to calculate VOUT.

To improve efficiency at very light loads consider using larger value resistors. However, using too high of resistance causes the circuit to be more susceptible to noise; and, voltage errors from the VFB input current will be more noticeable.

Equation 1. TPS565208 Eq_Vout_SLVSDJ7.gif

Output Filter Selection

The LC filter used as the output filter has double pole at:

Equation 2. TPS565208 Eq_03_SLVSD90.gif

At low frequencies, the overall loop gain is set by the output set-point resistor divider network and the internal gain of the device. The low frequency phase is 180°. At the output filter pole frequency, the gain rolls off at a –40 dB per decade rate and the phase drops rapidly. D-CAP2 introduces a high frequency zero that reduces the gain roll off to –20 dB per decade and increases the phase to 90° one decade above the zero frequency. The inductor and capacitor for the output filter must be selected so that the double pole of Equation 2 is located below the high frequency zero but close enough that the phase boost provided be the high frequency zero provides adequate phase margin for a stable circuit. To meet this requirement use the values recommended in Table 2.

The inductor peak-to-peak ripple current, peak current and RMS current are calculated using Equation 3, Equation 4, and Equation 5. The inductor saturation current rating must be greater than the calculated peak current and the RMS or heating current rating must be greater than the calculated RMS current.

Use 550 kHz for ƒSW. Make sure the chosen inductor is rated for the peak current of Equation 4 and the RMS current of Equation 6.

Equation 3.
Equation 4. TPS565208 Eq_Ipeak2_SLVSE72.gif
Equation 5. TPS565208 Eq_ILorms2_SLVSE72.gif

For this design example, the calculated peak current is 5.4 A and the calculated RMS current is 5 A. The inductor used is a WE 744311220 with a peak current rating of 13 A and an RMS current rating of 9 A.

The capacitor value and ESR determines the amount of output voltage ripple. The TPS565208 is intended for use with ceramic or other low ESR capacitors. Recommended values range from 20 µF to 68 µF. Use Equation 6 to determine the required RMS current rating for the output capacitor.

Equation 6. TPS565208 Eq_07_SLVSD90.gif

For this design two TDK C3216X5R0J226M 22-µF output capacitors are used. The typical ESR is 2 mΩ each. The calculated RMS current is 0.229 A.

Input Capacitor Selection

The TPS565208 requires an input decoupling capacitor and a bulk capacitor is needed depending on the application. TI recommends a ceramic capacitor over 10 µF for the decoupling capacitor. An additional 0.1-µF capacitor (C3) from pin 3 to ground is optional to provide additional high frequency filtering. The capacitor voltage rating needs to be greater than the maximum input voltage.

Bootstrap Capacitor Selection

A 0.1-µF ceramic capacitor must be connected between the VBST to SW pin for proper operation. TI recommends to use a ceramic capacitor.
