Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 2659A features the LTM4671 µModule® regulator, a high performance high efficiency four output step-down regulator. The LTM4671EY has an operating input voltage range of 3.6V to 20V providing up to 12A from each of its two higher current rails and up to 5A from each of its two lower current rails. The two higher current rails’ output voltage is programmable from 0.6V to 3.3V while the two lower current rails’ output voltage is programmable from 0.6V to 5.5V. High current rails can be paralleled together, and lower current rails can be paralleled together to satisfy higher rail current requirements. The LTM4671EY is a complete multi-output DC-DC point-of-load regulator in a thermally enhanced 16mm × 9.5mm × 4.82mm BGA package requiring only a few input and output capacitors. Output voltage tracking is made available by the TRACK/SS pins for supply rail sequencing. Temperature sensing options are included via the TSENSE and TMON pins. External clock synchronization is available through the CLKIN pins, CLKOUT pins provide for optional synchronization of additional module phases. The LTM4671 data sheet must be read in conjunction with this demo manual for working on or modifying demo circuit 2659A.

Features & Benefits
- Analog Devices has worked closely with Intel PSG to develop verified power solutions that optimize cost, size and efficiency in high performance applications.
- The validated power solutions include uModules power products that address time and space constraints while delivering high efficiency, reliability, and low noise.
- The actual power tree represents the best solution at time of design.
- A recommended power tree has also been included to present the ideal solution at time of Stratix 10 GX SI development kit release. An updated alternate version of the power tree represents the latest solutions available from Analog Devices. For many applications, an intermediate rail is not ideal, so recommendations for an alternate power tree that allows for direct power conversion from 12V input is provided below.
ADI has always placed the highest emphasis on delivering products that meet the maximum levels of quality and reliability. We achieve this by incorporating quality and reliability checks in every scope of product and process design, and in the manufacturing process as well. "Zero defects" for shipped products is always our goal.
