Regulation Comparator

The LM516x-Q1 voltage regulation loop regulates the output voltage by maintaining the FB voltage equal to the internal reference voltage, VREF = 1.2 V (typ). A resistor divider programs the ratio from the output voltage VOUT1 to VREF.

Equation 27 is used to calculate RFBT based on a selected RFBB.

Equation 27.

TI recommends selecting RFBB in the range of 10 kΩ to 1 MΩ for most applications. A larger RFBB consumes less DC current, which is mandatory if light-load efficiency is critical. RFBB larger than 1 MΩ is not recommended as the feedback path becomes more susceptible to noise. For this example, RFBB = 61.9 kΩ is chosen. This gives RFBT = 453 kΩ. It is important to route the feedback trace away from the noisy area of the PCB and keep the feedback resistors close to the FB pin.

Note that in some schematics, the user may see RFB1 and RFB2; the correlation is as follows: RFB1 = RFBB and RFB2 = RFBT.
