Small Signal Model for Frequency Compensation

The device uses a transconductance amplifier for the error amplifier and readily supports two of the commonly used frequency compensation circuits shown in Figure 7-8. In Type 2A, one additional high-frequency pole is added to attenuate high-frequency noise.

The following design guidelines are provided for advanced users who prefer to compensate using the general method. The step-by-step design procedure described in Detailed Design Procedure may also be used.

GUID-3D3AC154-8B76-4C49-8008-38B87957977C-low.gifFigure 7-8 Types of Frequency Compensation

The general design guidelines for device loop compensation are as follows:

  1. Determine the crossover frequency fco. A good starting point is one-tenth of the switching frequency, ƒSW.
  2. R3 can be determined by:
    Equation 10. GUID-F0309B43-2394-4D22-A863-BC93A5AF7E15-low.gif

    where gmea is the gm of the error amplifier (1400 μS), gmps is the gm of the power stage (12 S) and VREF is the reference voltage (0.807 V).

  3. Place a compensation zero at the dominant pole GUID-370F338C-087E-4294-99A5-DB674633CFEB-low.gif using C1 and R3.
    C1 can be determined by
    Equation 11. GUID-0BDF40DF-3BBC-4B58-A6A5-6E9A3DBDCF2B-low.gif
  4. C2 is optional. It can be used to cancel the zero from the equivalent series resistance (ESR) of the output capacitor COUT.
