EN5311QI 1A PowerSoC
Step-Down DC-DC Switching Converter with Integrated Inductor
DESCRIPTION
The Ultra-Low-Profile EN5311QI is targeted to
applications where board area and profile are critical.
EN5311QI is a complete power conversion solution
requiring only two low cost ceramic MLCC caps.
Inductor, MOSFETS, PWM, and compensation are
integrated into a tiny 5mm x 4mm x 1.1mm QFN
package. The EN5311QI is engineered to simplify
design and to minimize layout constraints. 4 MHz
switching frequency and internal type III
compensation provides superior transient response.
With a 1.1 mm profile, the EN5311QI is ideal for space
and height constrained applications.
A 3-pin VID output voltage selector provides seven
pre-programmed output voltages along with an
option for external resistor divider. Output voltage
can be programmed on-the-fly to provide fast,
dynamic voltage scaling.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
Synchronous DC-DC Step-Down PowerSoC
The EN5311QI is a complete DC-DC converter solution requiring only two low cost MLCC capacitors. MOSFET
switches, PWM controller, Gate-drive, compensation, and inductor are integrated into the tiny 5mm x 4mm x
1.1mm package to provide the smallest footprint possible while maintaining high efficiency, low ripple, and
high performance. The converter uses voltage mode control to provide the simplest implementation and high
noise immunity. The device operates at a high switching frequency. The high switching frequency allows for a
wide control loop bandwidth providing excellent transient performance. The high switching frequency enables
the use of very small components making possible this unprecedented level of integration.
Intel Enpirion’s proprietary power MOSFET technology provides very low switching loss at frequencies of 4
MHz and higher, allowing for the use of very small internal components, and very wide control loop bandwidth.
Unique magnetic design allows for integration of the inductor into the very low profile 1.1mm package.
Integration of the inductor virtually eliminates the design/layout issues normally associated with switch-mode
DCDC converters. All of this enables much easier and faster integration into various applications to meet
demanding EMI requirements.
Output voltage is chosen from seven preset values via a three pin VID voltage select scheme. An external
divider option enables the selection of any voltage in the 0.6V to VIN-0.6V range. This reduces the number of
components that must be qualified and reduces inventory burden. The VID pins can be toggled on the fly to
implement glitch free dynamic voltage scaling.
Protection features include under-voltage lock-out (UVLO), over-current protection (OCP), short circuit
protection, and thermal overload protection.
Integrated Inductor
Intel Epirion has introduced the world’s first product family featuring integrated inductors. The use of an
internal inductor localizes the noises associated with the output loop currents. The inherent shielding and
compact construction of the integrated inductor reduces the radiated noise that couples into the traces of the
circuit board. Further, the package layout is optimized to reduce the electrical path length for the AC ripple
currents that are a major source of radiated emissions from DCDC converters. The integrated inductor
significantly reduces parasitic effects that can harm loop stability, and makes layout very simple.
Soft Start
Internal soft start circuits limit in-rush current when the device starts up from a power down condition or when
the “ENABLE” pin is asserted “high”. Digital control circuitry limits the VOUT ramp rate to levels that are safe for
the Power MOSFETS and the integrated inductor.
The EN5311QI operates in a constant slew rate when the output voltage is programmed with an internal VID
code. The EN5311QI, when in external resistor divider mode, has a constant start up time. Please refer to the
Electrical Characteristics table for soft-start slew rates and soft-start time
Excess bulk capacitance on the output of the device can cause an over-current condition at startup. Assuming
no-load at startup, the maximum total capacitance on the output, including the output filter capacitor, bulk
and decoupling capacitance, at the load, is given as:
03799 March 1, 2019 Rev H
Datasheet | Intel® Enpirion® Power Solutions: EN5311QI
Page 11
In VID Mode:
COUT_TOTAL_MAX = COUT_Filter + COUT_BULK = 700µF
In external divider mode:
COUT_TOTAL_MAX = 1.22x10-3/VOUT Farads
See the applications section for more details.
Startup into Pre-Bias
The EN5311QI supports startup into a pre-biased output of up to VOUT. The output of the EN5311QI can be
pre-biased with a voltage up to VOUT when it is first enabled.
Over Current/Short Circuit Protection
The current limit function is achieved by sensing the current flowing through a sense P-MOSFET which is
compared to a reference current. When this level is exceeded the P-FET is turned off and the N-FET is turned
on, pulling VOUT low. This condition is maintained for a period of 1ms and then a normal soft start is initiated.
If the over current condition still persists, this cycle will repeat in a “hick-up” mode.
Under Voltage Lockout
During initial power up an under voltage lockout circuit will hold-off the switching circuitry until the input
voltage reaches a sufficient level to insure proper operation. If the voltage drops below the UVLO threshold
the lockout circuitry will again disable the switching. Hysteresis is included to prevent chattering between
states.
Enable
The ENABLE pin provides a means to shut down the converter or enable normal operation. A logic low will
disable the converter and cause it to shut down. A logic high will enable the converter into normal operation.
In shutdown mode, the device quiescent current will be less than 1 µA.
NOTE: This pin must not be left floating.
Thermal Shutdown
When excessive power is dissipated in the chip, the junction temperature rises. Once the junction temperature
exceeds the thermal shutdown temperature the thermal shutdown circuit turns off the converter output
voltage thus allowing the device to cool. When the junction temperature decreases by 15C°, the device will go
through the normal startup process.

APPLICATION INFORMATION
Output Voltage Setting
To provide the highest degree of flexibility in choosing output voltage, the EN5311QI uses a 3 pin VID, or
Voltage ID, output voltage select arrangement. This allows the designer to choose one of seven preset
voltages, or to use an external voltage divider. Internally, the output of the VID multiplexer sets the value for
the voltage reference DAC, which in turn is connected to the non-inverting input of the error amplifier. This
allows the use of a single feedback divider with constant loop gain and optimum compensation, independent
of the output voltage selected. Since VFB is a sensitive node, do not touch the VFB node while the device is in
operation as doing so may introduce parasitic capacitance into the control loop that causes the device to
behave abnormally and damage may occur.
Table 1 shows the various VS0-VS2 pin logic states and the associated output voltage levels. A logic “1”
indicates a connection to VIN or to a “high” logic voltage level. A logic “0” indicates a connection to ground or
to a “low” logic voltage level. These pins can be either hardwired to VIN or GND or alternatively can be driven
by standard logic levels. Logic low is defined as VLOW 0.4V. Logic high is defined as VHIGH 1.4V. Any level
between these two values is indeterminate. These pins must not be left floating.
The External Voltage Divider pin, VFB, may be left floating for all VID settings other than the VS0=VS1=VS2=
”1”.

External Voltage Divider
As described above, the external voltage divider option is chosen by connecting the VS0, VS1, and VS2 pins
to VIN or logic “high”. The EN5311QI uses a separate feedback pin, VFB, when using the external divider.
For applications with VIN ≤ 5.5V, VSENSE must be connected to VOUT as indicated in Figure 5.

Dynamically Adjustable Output
The EN5311QI is designed to allow for dynamic switching between the predefined VID voltage levels. The
inter-voltage slew rate is optimized to prevent excess undershoot or overshoot as the output voltage levels
transition. The slew rate is identical to the soft-start slew rate of 1.65V/ms.
Dynamic transitioning between internal VID settings and the external divider is not allowed.
Input and Output Capacitors
The input capacitance requirement is 4.7µF. Intel Enpirion recommends that a low ESR MLCC capacitor be
used. The input capacitor must use a X5R or X7R or equivalent dielectric formulation. Y5V or equivalent
dielectric formulations lose capacitance with frequency, bias, and with temperature, and are not suitable for
switch-mode DC-DC converter input and output filter applications.
The output capacitance minimum requirement depends on the output voltage setting. The following table
shows the recommended minimum output capacitance for a given output voltage.
Table 2. Recommended Output Capacitance
VOUT COUT Size (EIA)
1V 10 µF 0805
1.8V 10 µF 0805
3.3V 47 µF 0805
The control loop is designed to be stable with up to 60µF of total output capacitance next to the output pins
of the device without requiring modification to the compensation network. VOUT has to be sensed at the last
output filter capacitor next to the device. Intel Enpirion recommends a low ESR MLCC type capacitor be used.
Additional capacitance may be added to improve load transient response.
Additional bulk capacitance for decoupling and bypass can be placed at the load as long as there is sufficient
separation between the VOUT Sense point and the bulk capacitance. The separation provides an inductance
that isolates the control loop from the bulk capacitance.
Excess total capacitance on the output (Output Filter + Bulk) can cause an over-current condition at startup.
Refer to the section on Soft-Start for the maximum total capacitance on the output.
The output capacitor must use a X5R or X7R or equivalent dielectric formulation. Y5V or equivalent dielectric
formulations lose capacitance with frequency, bias, and temperature and are not suitable for switch-mode DC-
DC converter input and output filter applications.

LAYOUT RECOMMENDATIONS
*Optimized PCB Layout file downloadable from the Intel Enpirion Website to assure first pass design success.
Recommendation 1: Input and output filter capacitors should be placed on the same side of the PCB, and as
close to the EN5311QI package as possible. They should be connected to the device with very short and wide
traces. Do not use thermal reliefs or spokes when connecting the capacitor pads to the respective nodes. The
+V and GND traces between the capacitors and the EN5311QI should be as close to each other as possible so
that the gap between the two nodes is minimized, even under the capacitors.
Recommendation 2: DO NOT connect GND pins 3 and 4 together. Pin 3 should be used for the Input capacitor
local ground and pin 4 should be used for the output capacitor ground. The ground pad for the input and
output filter capacitors should be isolated ground islands and should be connected to system ground as
indicated in recommendation 3 and recommendation 5.
Recommendation 3: Multiple small vias (0.25mm after copper plating) should be used to connect ground
terminals of the Input capacitor and the output capacitor to the system ground plane. This provides a low
inductance path for the high-frequency AC currents; thereby reducing ripple and suppressing EMI (see Fig. 7,
Fig. 8, and Fig. 9).
Recommendation 4: The large thermal pad underneath the component must be connected to the system
ground plane through as many thermal vias as possible. The vias should use 0.33mm drill size with minimum
one ounce copper plating (0.035mm plating thickness). This provides the path for heat dissipation from the
converter.
Recommendation 5: The system ground plane referred to in recommendations 3 and 4 should be the first
layer immediately below the surface layer (PCB layer 2). This ground plane should be continuous and un-
interrupted below the converter and the input and output capacitors that carry large AC currents. If it is not
possible to make PCB layer 2 a continuous ground plane, an uninterrupted ground “island” should be created
on PCB layer 2 immediately underneath the EN5311QI and its input and output capacitors. The vias that
connect the input and output capacitor grounds, and the thermal pad to the ground island, should continue
through to the PCB GND layer as well.
Recommendation 6: As with any switch-mode DC-DC converter, do not run sensitive signal or control lines
underneath the converter package.
Recommendation 7: The VOUT sense point should be just after the last output filter capacitor next to the
device. Keep the sense trace short in order to avoid noise coupling into the node.
Recommendation 8: Keep Ra, Ca, and Rb close to the VFB pin (see Figures 4 and 5). The VFB pin is a high-
impedance, sensitive node. Keep the trace to this pin as short as possible. Whenever possible, connect Rb
directly to the GND pin instead of going through the GND plane.
Figure 6 shows an example schematic for the EN5311QI using the internal voltage select. In this example, the
device is set to a VOUT of 1.5V (VS2=0, VS1=1, VS0=1).
Figure 7 shows an example schematic using an external voltage divider. VS0=VS1=VS2= “1”. The resistor
values are chosen to give an output voltage of 2.6V.

DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS FOR LEAD-FRAME BASED MODULES
Exposed Metal on Bottom of Package
Intel has developed a break-through in package technology that utilizes the lead frame as part of the
electrical circuit. The lead frame offers many advantages in thermal performance, in reduced electrical lead
resistance, and in overall foot print. However, it does require some special considerations.
As part of the package assembly process, lead frame construction requires that for mechanical support,
some of the lead-frame cantilevers be exposed at the point where wire-bond or internal passives are
attached. This results in several small pads being exposed on the bottom of the package.
Only the large thermal pad and the perimeter pin pads are to be mechanically or electrically connected to the
PC board. The PCB top layer under the EN5311QI should be clear of any metal except for the large thermal
pad. The “grayed-out” area in Figure 10 represents the area that should be clear of any metal (traces, vias, or
planes), on the top layer of the PCB.
NOTE: Clearance between the various exposed metal pads, the thermal ground pad, and the perimeter pins,
meets or exceeds JEDEC requirements for lead frame package construction (JEDEC MO-220, Issue J, Date
May 2005). The separation between the large thermal pad and the nearest adjacent metal pad or pin is a
minimum of 0.20mm, including tolerances. This is shown in Figure 11.
