Frequency Selection

Equation 1 is used to calculate the value of RON required to achieve the desired switching frequency.

Equation 24. GUID-6DB0A0B4-483C-4E12-869F-17AF09CB91A7-low.gif

where

  • K = 9 × 10–11

For VOUT1 of 10 V and fSW of 750 kHz, the calculated value of RON is 148 kΩ. A lower value of 130 kΩ is selected for this design to allow for second order effects at high switching frequency that are not included in Equation 24.
