ADP1621

Constant-Frequency, Current-Mode Step-Up DC/DC Controller
Manufactured by:

Product Details

The ADP1621 is a fixed-frequency, pulse-width modulation (PWM), current-mode, step-up converter controller. It drives an external n-channel MOSFET to convert the input voltage to a higher output voltage. The ADP1621 can also be used to drive flyback, SEPIC, and forward converter topologies, either isolated or nonisolated.

The ADP1621 eliminates the use of a current-sense power resistor by measuring the voltage drop across the on resistance of the n-channel MOSFET. This technique, allowed up to a maximum voltage of 30 V at the switch node, maximizes efficiency and reduces cost. For switch-node voltages higher than 30 V or for more accurate current limiting, the CS pin can be connected to a current-sense resistor in the source of the MOSFET. The slope compensation is implemented by an external resistor, allowing a wide range of external components (inductors and MOSFETs), and can be chosen for various switching frequencies and input and output voltages.

The ADP1621 supply input voltage range is 2.9 V to 5.5 V, although higher input voltages are possible with the use of a small-signal NPN pass transistor or a single resistor. The voltage of the power input can be as low as 1 V for fuel cell applications. The switching frequency is set by an external resistor over a range of 100 kHz to 1.5 MHz and can be synchronized to an external clock by using the SDSN pin. The shutdown quiescent current is less than 10 μA. The ADP1621 has a thermal shutdown feature that shuts down the gate driver when the junction temperature reaches approximately 150°C. The internal soft start circuit limits inrush current at startup. The ADP1621 is available in the 10-lead MSOP lead-free package and is specified over the −40°C to +125°C junction temperature range.

Product Details

The input range for the demo board is 3.0 V to 3.6 V, and the output voltage is 5 V with a maximum load of 2 A. The design is done in a bootstrapped configuration as shown in Figure 13. The switching frequency fSW is set to 600 kHz with a 36 kΩ resistor. This design is done in all multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC), although other types of capacitors can be used, such as the aluminum polymer or aluminum electrolytic capacitors. The PCB is laid out in such a way that the user can easily modify the demo board for other input and output configurations.

Product Details

The AD-FMCMOTCON2-EBZ is a complete high performance servo system on an FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) board, the purpose of which is to provide a complete motor drive system demonstrating efficient and high dynamic control of three phase PMSM and induction motors up to 48V and 20A.

Two motors can be driven at the same time, each motor having its separate power supply. The system incorporates high quality power sources; reliable power, control, and feedback signals isolation; accurate measurement of motor current & voltage signals; high speed interfaces for control signals to allow fast controller response; industrial Ethernet high speed interfaces; single ended Hall, differential Hall, encoder and resolver interfaces; digital position sensors interface; flexible control with a FPGA/SoC interface.

The kit consists of two boards: a controller board and a drive board. An optional AD-DYNO2-EBZ dynamometer can also be purchased through Avnet and is intended to be an extension of the drive system.

Controller Board

  • Digital board for interfacing with the low and high voltage drive boards
  • Compatible with all Xilinx FPGA platforms with FMC LPC or HPC connectors
  • FMC signals voltage adaptation interface for seamless operation on all FMC voltage levels
  • Fully isolated digital control and feedback signals
  • Isolated Xilinx XADC interface
  • 2 x Gbit Ethernet PHYs for high speed industrial communication, with 3rd party EtherCAT support
  • Single ended Hall, Differential Hall, Encoder, Resolver interfaces
  • Digital sensors interfaces
    • EnDat
    • BISS Interface

Drive Board

  • Drives motors up to 48V @ 20A
  • Drives 2 motors simultaneously
  • High frequency drive stage implemented with ADI isolated gate drivers
  • Supported motor types
    BLDC
    PMSM
    Brushed DC
    Stepper (bipolar / unipolar)
  • Integrated over current protection
  • Reverse voltage protection
  • Current and Voltage measurement using isolated ADCs
  • BEMF zero cross detection for sensorless control of PMSM or BLDC motors
  • Separate voltage supplies for the 2 motors so that the motors don't influence each other

Dynamometer System with Embedded Control

  • Two BLDC motors connected by a rigid couple in a dyno setup, which can be used to test real-time motor control performance.
  • One BLDC motor acts as an electronically adjustable load and is driven by the embedded control system. This motor can be directly connected to the FMC motor drive to get complex / active loads. The load can be driven also by the AD-FMCMOTCON2-EBZ to implement dynamic load profiles.
  • The other BLDC motor is driven by the FMC motor drive.
  • Measurement and display of load motor current
  • Measurement and display of load motor speed
  • External control using Analog Discovery and MathWorks Instrumentation Control Toolbox

Software:

Example reference designs showing how to use the platform with Xilinx® FPGAs or SoCs and high performance control algorithms from Mathworks® are provided together with the hardware. Information on the FMC board, and how to use it, the design package that surrounds it, and the software which can make it work, can be found by clicking the software link.

Product Details

In order to get the correct unpopulated evaluation board with an appropriate Bill of Materials and Schematic, you need to use the button for "Request Evaluation Board" from within the design tool. Make sure the design tool is in a state that matches your desired power requirements.

This will create a template email that will request from us the proper blank evaluation board for that ADI part and your application's power parameters.


Note: Some parts have multiple blank boards for high/low current or for different topologies (Boost, SEPIC, SEPIC-Cuk), while other blank boards support multiple ADI parts. This is why it is important to run the design tool with your parameters before making your email request from the tool.
