Maximum Duty Cycle Limit and Minimum Input Supply Voltage

When designing boost converters, the maximum duty cycle should be reviewed at the minimum supply voltage. The minimum input supply voltage that can achieve the target output voltage is limited by the maximum duty cycle limit, and it can be estimated as follows.

Equation 15. GUID-86DA2761-3E17-4EA5-A2A1-041DBFFCE196-low.gif

where

  • ISUPPLY(MAX) = the maximum input current.
  • RDCR = the DC resistance of the inductor.
  • RDS(ON) = the on-resistance of the MOSFET.
Equation 16. GUID-CB7BA94A-613F-4231-B79C-6557D6871E67-low.gif
Equation 17. GUID-C9140116-345B-41DA-A228-7C997F0BF7A7-low.gif

The minimum input supply voltage can be further decreased by supplying fSYNC which is less than fRT. DMAX is DMAX1 or DMAX2, whichever is lower.
