The ADP2384/ADP2386 evaluation board is a complete, 4 A/6 A, 20 V, step-down regulator solution that allows users to evaluate the performance of the ADP2384/ADP2386 with a near ideal printed circuit board (PCB) layout.
The switching frequency can be programmed between 200 kHz and 1.4 MHz, or it can be synchronized to an external clock with a 180° phase shift, which provides the possibility for a stackable multiphase power solution.
The output of the ADP2384/ADP2386 evaluation board is preset to 3.3 V and the switching frequency is set to 600 kHz. Different output voltage settings can be achieved by changing appropriate passive components. The ambient temperature operating range is −40°C to +85°C.
Full details on the ADP2384 and ADP2386 regulators are provided in the ADP2384 and ADP2386 data sheets, available from Analog Devices, Inc., which should be consulted in conjunction with this user guide.
