LM5155EVM-SEPIC User's Guide
The LM5155EVM-SEPIC Evaluation Module (EVM) is designed to showcase the LM5155 wide input voltage Boost/SEPIC/Boost controller, implementing a SEPIC converter with a coupled inductor. The EVM operates at 2.2 MHz, and it produces a regulated output of 12 V 24 W from an input of 5 V to 42 V. When the input voltage is between 3 V to 5 V, the output power is derated down to 10 W. The factory-installed controller is the LM5155-Q1. However, by replacing the IC, the EVM can also be used to demonstrate the performance of the LM51551-Q1, LM5155 and LM51551. The difference between the LM5155-Q1 and LM51551-Q1, or between the LM5155 and LM51551, is that the latter features the hiccup mode for overload protection.
