DC2164A-C: 1V @ 140A, 4.5 ~ 15V in


Demonstration Circuit 2164A-C features a PolyPhase® design using the LTM®4630EY-1 (A-grade), the high efficiency, high density, dual 18A, switch mode step-down power module regulator. The input voltage is from 4.5V to 15V. The output voltage is jumper selectable from 0.9V to 1.8V. DC2164A-C can deliver nominal 140A output current. As explained in the data sheet, output current derating is necessary for certain VIN, VOUT, and thermal conditions.

The LTM4630-1A on DC2164A-C always operate in continuous conduction mode. The switching frequency can be programmed through a resistor or can be synchronized to an external clock signal. The board allows the user to program how its output voltage ramps up and down through the TRACK pin.

The output voltage is tightly regulated between VO + and VO – through remote output voltage sensing which improves output voltage regulation at heavy loads. The LTM4630-1A has ±0.8% total DC errors.

These features and the availability of the LTM4630EY-1 in a compact 16mm × 16mm × 5.01mm BGA package make it ideal for use in many high-density point-of-load regulation applications. The LTM4630-1 data sheet must be read in conjunction with this demo manual for working on or modifying the demo circuit DC2164A-C.
