DC-DC Converter Secondary PWM Selection
DC-DC converter requires 4 PWMs on the primary side and 2 on the secondary. The first PWM for secondary side is taken from EPWM6A. For flexibility sake, the second PWM is taken either from EPWM6B or EPWM7A. One of them will become redundant, but it can give some design options for experimenting during implementation. The related section on the control mother board is shown in Figure 3-6.

A 0E resistor on R65 will select EPWM6B as the source for 6th PWM (PWM F), whereas a 0E resistor on R63 will select EPWM7A for the same.


It is not advisable to mount both R63 and R65 together, and better be kept mutually exclusive to avoid malfunction or electrical damage to the pins if the other pin were to be used accidentally.

Tip: The unused GPIO pin between EPWM6B and EPWM7A could be used as a general purpose flag if required and could be monitored on the open terminal side of R63 or R65.
