DC1498A: 1.2V & 1.5V @ 13A (x2), 4.5 ~ 16V in


DC1498A features the LTM®4620EV, the high efficiency, high density, dual 13A, switch mode step-down power module regulator. The input voltage is from 4.5V to 16V. The output voltage is programmable from 0.6V to 2.5V. DC1498A can deliver nominal 12A output current and up to 13A maximum in each channel. As explained in the data sheet, output current derating is necessary for certain VIN, VOUT, and thermal conditions.

The board operates in continuous conduction mode in heavy load conditions. For high efficiency at low load currents, the MODE jumper (JP1) selects pulse-skipping mode for noise sensitive applications or Burst-Mode® operation in less noise sensitive applications. Two outputs can be connected in parallel for a single 26A output solution with optional jumper resistors. The board allows the user to program how its output ramps up and down through the TRACK/SS pin. The output can be set up to either coincidentally or ratiometrically track with another supply’s output.

Remote output voltage sensing is available for improved output voltage regulation at the load point. These features and the availability of the LTM4620EV in a compact 15mm × 15mm × 4.41mm LGA package make it ideal for use in many high-density point-of-load regulation applications. The LTM4620 data sheet must be read in conjunction with this demo manual prior to working on or modifying DC1498A.
