The ADP2389/ADP2390 evaluation board is a complete, 12 A, 18 V, step-down regulator solution that allows users to evaluate the performance of the ADP2389/ADP2390 with a near ideal printed circuit board (PCB) layout.
The programmable current-limit function allows the inductor to be optimized by output current. The peak current-limit threshold is preset to 21 A to ensure the 12 A output current
The switching frequency can be programmed between 200 kHz and 2.2 MHz, which provides the possibility for a stackable multiphase power solution.
An enhanced transient response feature improves the load transient performance, which reduces the output capacitance.
The output of the ADP2389/ADP2390 evaluation board is preset to 1.8 V and the switching frequency is set to 500 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 ADP2389/ADP2390 regulators are provided in the ADP2389/ADP2390 data sheet, available from Analog Devices, Inc., which should be consulted in conjunction with this user guide.
