The inductor current then flows through the schottky diode to the load and output capacitor, cycle 2 of Figure 1 (b). The NMOS power device is then set by the oscillator at the end of the period and current flows through the inductor once again. The LM2700 LM2700 has dedicated protection circuitry running during normal operation to protect the IC. The Thermal Shutdown circuitry turns off the NMOS power device when the die temperature reaches excessive levels. The UVP comparator protects the NMOS power device during supply power startup and shutdown to prevent operation at voltages less than the minimum input voltage. The OVP comparator is used to prevent the output voltage from rising at no loads allowing full PWM operation over all load conditions. The LM2700 LM2700 also features a shutdown mode decreasing the supply current to 5µA. Detailed Description The LM2700 LM2700 utilizes a PWM control scheme to regulate the output voltage over all load conditions. The operation can best be understood referring to the block diagram and Figure 1 of the Operation section. At the start of each cycle, the oscillator sets the driver logic and turns on the NMOS power device conducting current through the inductor, cycle 1 of Figure 1 (a). During this cycle, the voltage at the VC pin controls the peak inductor current. The VC voltage will increase with larger loads and decrease with smaller. This voltage is compared with the summation of the SW voltage and the ramp compensation. The ramp compensation is used in PWM architectures to eliminate the sub-harmonic oscillations that occur during duty cycles greater than 50%. Once the summation of the ramp compensation and switch voltage equals the VC voltage, the PWM comparator resets 3 www.national.com LM2700 LM2700 Absolute Maximum Ratings Infrared (15 sec.)

Simplified Boost Converter Diagram (a) First Cycle of Operation (b) Second Cycle Of Operation Continuous Conduction Mode The LM2700 LM2700 is a current-mode, PWM boost regulator. A boost regulator steps the input voltage up to a higher output voltage. In continuous conduction mode (when the inductor current never reaches zero at steady state), the boost regulator operates in two cycles. In the first cycle of operation, shown in Figure 1 (a), the transistor is closed and the diode is reverse biased. Energy is collected in the inductor and the load current is supplied by COUT. The second cycle is shown in Figure 1 (b). During this cycle, the transistor is open and the diode is forward biased. The energy stored in the inductor is transferred to the load and output capacitor. The ratio of these two cycles determines the output voltage. The output voltage is defined approximately as: Introduction to Compensation where D is the duty cycle of the switch, D and D' will be required for design calculations. Setting the Output Voltage The output voltage is set using the feedback pin and a resistor divider connected to the output as shown in Figure 3. The feedback pin voltage is 1.26V, so the ratio of the feedback resistors sets the output voltage according to the following equation: www.national.com 20012305 FIGURE 2. (a) Inductor current. (b) Diode current. 8 LM2700 LM2700 Operation (Continued) The LM2700 LM2700 is a current mode PWM boost converter. The signal flow of this control scheme has two feedback loops, one that senses switch current and one that senses output voltage. To keep a current programmed control converter stable above duty cycles of 50%, the inductor must meet certain criteria. The inductor, along with input and output voltage, will determine the slope of the current through the inductor (see Figure 2 (a). If the slope of the inductor current is too great, the circuit will be unstable above duty cycles of 50%. A 4.7µH inductor is recommended for most 600 kHz applications, while a 2.2µH inductor may be used for most 1.25 MHz applications. If the duty cycle is approaching the maximum of 85%, it may be necessary to increase the inductance by as much as 2X. See Inductor and Diode Selection for more detailed inductor sizing. The LM2700 LM2700 provides a compensation pin (VC) to customize the voltage loop feedback. It is recommended that a series combination of RC and CC be used for the compensation network, as shown in Figure 3. For any given application, there exists a unique combination of RC and CC that will optimize the performance of the LM2700 LM2700 circuit in terms of its transient response. The series combination of RC and CC introduces a pole-zero pair according to the following equations: where fs is the switching frequency, D is the duty cycle, and RDSON is the ON resistance of the internal switch taken from the graph 'RDSON vs. VIN' in the Typical Performance Characteristics section. This equation is only good for duty cycles greater than 50% (D > 0.5), for duty cycles less than 50% the recommended values may be used. The corresponding inductor current ripple as shown in Figure 2 (a) is given by: The inductor ripple current is important for a few reasons. One reason is because the peak switch current will be the average inductor current (input current or ILOAD/D') plus iL. As a side note, discontinuous operation occurs when the inductor current falls to zero during a switching cycle, or iL is greater than the average inductor current. Therefore, continuous conduction mode occurs when iL is less than the average inductor current. Care must be taken to make sure that the switch will not reach its current limit during normal operation. The inductor must also be sized accordingly. It should have a saturation current rating higher than the peak inductor current expected. The output voltage ripple is also affected by the total ripple current. The output diode for a boost regulator must be chosen correctly depending on the output voltage and the output current. The typical current waveform for the diode in continuous conduction mode is shown in Figure 2 (b). The diode must be rated for a reverse voltage equal to or greater than the output voltage used. The average current rating must be greater than the maximum load current expected, and the peak current rating must be greater than the peak inductor current. During short circuit testing, or if short circuit conditions are possible in the application, the diode current rating must exceed the switch current limit. Using Schottky diodes with lower forward voltage drop will decrease power dissipation and increase efficiency. where RO is the output impedance of the error amplifier, approximately 850k. For most applications, performance can be optimized by choosing values within the range 5k RC 20k (RC can be up to 200k if CC2 is used, see High Output Capacitor ESR Compensation) and 680pF CC 4.7nF. Refer to the Applications Information section for recommended values for specific circuits and conditions. Refer to the Compensation section for other design requirement. Compensation This section will present a general design procedure to help insure a stable and operational circuit. The designs in this datasheet are optimized for particular requirements. If different conversions are required, some of the components may need to be changed to ensure stability. Below is a set of general guidelines in designing a stable circuit for continuous conduction operation (loads greater than approximately 100mA), in most all cases this will provide for stability during discontinuous operation as well. The power components and their effects will be determined first, then the compensation components will be chosen to produce stability. DC Gain and Open-loop Gain Since the control stage of the converter forms a complete feedback loop with the power components, it forms a closedloop system that must be stabilized to avoid positive feedback and instability. A value for open-loop DC gain will be required, from which you can calculate, or place, poles and zeros to determine the crossover frequency and the phase margin. A high phase margin (greater than 45°) is desired for the best stability and transient response. For the purpose of stabilizing the LM2700 LM2700, choosing a crossover point well below where the right half plane zero is located will ensure sufficient phase margin. A discussion of the right half plane zero and checking the crossover using the DC gain will follow. Inductor and Diode Selection Although the inductor sizes mentioned earlier are fine for most applications, a more exact value can be calculated. To ensure stability at duty cycles above 50%, the inductor must have some minimum value determined by the minimum input voltage and the maximum output voltage. This equation is: Input and Output Capacitor Selection The switching action of a boost regulator causes a triangular voltage waveform at the input. A capacitor is required to reduce the input ripple and noise for proper operation of the regulator. The size used is dependant on the application and board layout. If the regulator will be loaded uniformly, with 9 www.national.com LM2700 LM2700 Operation given in the Introduction to Compensation section to set this pole in the area of 10Hz to 500Hz. The frequency of the pole created is determined by the equation: (Continued) very little load changes, and at lower current outputs, the input capacitor size can often be reduced. The size can also be reduced if the input of the regulator is very close to the source output. The size will generally need to be larger for applications where the regulator is supplying nearly the maximum rated output or if large load steps are expected. A minimum value of 10µF should be used for the less stressful condtions while a 33µF or 47µF capacitor may be required for higher power and dynamic loads. Larger values and/or lower ESR may be needed if the application requires very low ripple on the input source voltage. The choice of output capacitors is also somewhat arbitrary and depends on the design requirements for output voltage ripple. It is recommended that low ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance, denoted RESR) capacitors be used such as ceramic, polymer electrolytic, or low ESR tantalum. Higher ESR capacitors may be used but will require more compensation which will be explained later on in the section. The ESR is also important because it determines the peak to peak output voltage ripple according to the approximate equation: VOUT ) 2iLRESR (in Volts) where RO is the output impedance of the error amplifier, approximately 850k. Since RC is generally much less than RO, it does not have much effect on the above equation and can be neglected until a value is chosen to set the zero fZC. fZC is created to cancel out the pole created by the output capacitor, fP1. The output capacitor pole will shift with different load currents as shown by the equation, so setting the zero is not exact. Determine the range of fP1 over the expected loads and then set the zero fZC to a point approximately in the middle. The frequency of this zero is determined by: Now RC can be chosen with the selected value for CC. Check to make sure that the pole fPC is still in the 10Hz to 500Hz range, change each value slightly if needed to ensure both component values are in the recommended range. After checking the design at the end of this section, these values can be changed a little more to optimize performance if desired. This is best done in the lab on a bench, checking the load step response with different values until the ringing and overshoot on the output voltage at the edge of the load steps is minimal. This should produce a stable, high performance circuit. For improved transient response, higher values of RC should be chosen. This will improve the overall bandwidth which makes the regulator respond more quickly to transients. If more detail is required, or the most optimal performance is desired, refer to a more in depth discussion of compensating current mode DC/DC switching regulators. A minimum value of 10µF is recommended and may be increased to a larger value. After choosing the output capacitor you can determine a pole-zero pair introduced into the control loop by the following equations: Where RL is the minimum load resistance corresponding to the maximum load current. The zero created by the ESR of the output capacitor is generally very high frequency if the ESR is small. If low ESR capacitors are used it can be neglected. If higher ESR capacitors are used see the High Output Capacitor ESR Compensation section. High Output Capacitor ESR Compensation When using an output capacitor with a high ESR value, or just to improve the overall phase margin of the control loop, another pole may be introduced to cancel the zero created by the ESR. This is accomplished by adding another capacitor, CC2, directly from the compensation pin VC to ground, in parallel with the series combination of RC and CC. The pole should be placed at the same frequency as fZ1, the ESR zero. The equation for this pole follows: Right Half Plane Zero A current mode control boost regulator has an inherent right half plane zero (RHP zero). This zero has the effect of a zero in the gain plot, causing an imposed +20dB/decade on the rolloff, but has the effect of a pole in the phase, subtracting another 90° in the phase plot. This can cause undesirable effects if the control loop is influenced by this zero. To ensure the RHP zero does not cause instability issues, the control loop should be designed to have a bandwidth of less than 1/2 the frequency of the RHP zero. This zero occurs at a frequency of: To ensure this equation is valid, and that CC2 can be used without negatively impacting the effects of RC and CC, fPC2 must be greater than 10fZC. Checking the Design The final step is to check the design. This is to ensure a bandwidth of 1/2 or less of the frequency of the RHP zero. This is done by calculating the open-loop DC gain, ADC. After this value is known, you can calculate the crossover visually by placing a -20dB/decade slope at each pole, and a +20dB/decade slope for each zero. The point at which the gain plot crosses unity gain, or 0dB, is the crossover frequency. If the crossover frequency is less than 1/2 the RHP zero, the phase margin should be high enough for stability. where ILOAD is the maximum load current. Selecting the Compensation Components The first step in selecting the compensation components RC and CC is to set a dominant low frequency pole in the control loop. Simply choose values for RC and CC within the ranges www.national.com 10 Layout Considerations (Continued) The LM2700 LM2700 uses two separate ground connections, PGND for the driver and NMOS power device and AGND for the sensitive analog control circuitry. The AGND and PGND pins should be tied directly together at the package. The feedback and compensation networks should be connected directly to a dedicated analog ground plane and this ground plane must connect to the AGND pin. If no analog ground plane is available then the ground connections of the feedback and compensation networks must tie directly to the AGND pin. Connecting these networks to the PGND can inject noise into the system and effect performance. The input bypass capacitor CIN, as shown in Figure 3, must be placed close to the IC. This will reduce copper trace resistance which effects input voltage ripple of the IC. For additional input voltage filtering, a 100nF bypass capacitor can be placed in parallel with CIN, close to the VIN pin, to shunt any high frequency noise to ground. The output capacitor, COUT, should also be placed close to the IC. Any copper trace connections for the COUT capacitor can increase the series resistance, which directly effects output voltage ripple. The feedback network, resistors RFB1 and RFB2, should be kept close to the FB pin, and away from the inductor, to minimize copper trace connections that can inject noise into the system. Trace connections made to the inductor and schottky diode should be minimized to reduce power dissipation and increase overall efficiency. For more detail on switching power supply layout considerations see Application Note AN-1149 AN-1149: Layout Guidelines for Switching Power Supplies. The phase margin can also be improved by adding CC2 as discussed earlier in the section. The equation for ADC is given below with additional equations required for the calculation: mc ) 0.072fs (in V/s) where RL is the minimum load resistance, VIN is the maximum input voltage, gm is the error amplifier transconductance found in the Electrical Characteristics table, and RDSON is the value chosen from the graph 'RDSON vs. VIN ' in the Typical Performance Characteristics section.
