Changing the Phase Configuration

There are five possible phase configurations as shown in Table 4-1. It is important that the phase configuration of the EVM matches the phase configuration of the PMIC. Jumpers J3-J8 are located on the top side of the PCB whereas the resistors R1-R7 are on the bottom side of the PCB.

Table 4-1 Phase configurations
Phase configuration R1 R2/R3 R4/R5 R6/R7 J3 J4 J5 J6 J7 J8
1 (4-phase) R1 R2 R5 R6 Y Y Y Y Y Y
2 (3+1) R1 R2 R5 R7 Y Y Y Y N N
3 (2+1+1) R1 R2 R4 R7 N N Y N N N
4 (1+1+1+1) R1 R3 R4 R7 N N N N N N
5 (2+2) R1 R2 R4 R6 N N Y N N Y

This table is also printed on the EVM on the bottom side of the PCB. All the feedback voltages can be measured from J14-J19 where J15 and J18 are differential feedbacks.

Note: it is possible to use unused secondary buck's feedbacks for voltage monitoring. 0ohm resistor connecting the FB pin to GND must be opened in this case (e.g. R5/R6).
