DESCRIPTION
LTM4618EV:
6A Step-Down Power
µModule Regulator
Demonstration circuit 1472 features the LTM
®
4618EV
μModule
®
regulator, a complete high effi ciency synchro-
nous buck regulator. The DC1472 input range is from 4.5V
to 26.5V and is capable of delivering up to 6A of output
current. However, current derating may be necessary under
certain VIN, VOUT, frequency and thermal conditions. The
output voltage for the board is jumper programmable from
1.2V to 5V and can be set as low as 0.8V, the reference
voltage of the LTM4618EV.
Layout is simple, requiring only a few bulk input and output
capacitors externally. The TRACK/SS pin allows the user to
program the output voltage ramp-up and ramp-down, as
well as coincidentally or ratiometrically track an external
voltage. The LTM4618EV may be enabled or disabled by
the RUN pin. The MODE jumper (JP3) is available to select

operation for improved
effi ciency at light load. DC1472 has a default switching
frequency of 500 kHz and is synchronizable to an external
clock from 250 kHz up to 750 kHz. These features and the
availability of the LTM4618EV in a compact 9mm × 15mm
× 4.32mm LGA package make the demonstration circuit
ideal for use in many high density point-of-load regula-
tion applications. The LTM4618 data sheet must be read
in conjunction with this demo manual for working on or
modifying the demo circuit 1472A.

Demonstration circuit 1472 is easy to set up to evaluate the
performance of the LTM4618EV. Please refer to Figure1
for proper measurement equipment setup and follow the
procedure below.
1. With power off, connect the input power supply, load
and meters as shown in Figure 1. Preset the load to 0A
and VIN supply to be 0V. Place jumpers in the following
positions for a typical 1.5VOUT application:
JP6 JP3 JP4 JP2
VOUT Select MODE RUN TRACK/SS
1.5V CCM OFF SS
2. Turn on the power at the input. Increase VIN to 12V
(Caution: Do not hot plug the input supply or apply
more than the rated maximum voltage of 26.5V to the
board or the part may be damaged).
3. Set the RUN pin jumper (JP4) to the on position. The
output voltage should rise to 1.5V. The output voltage
meter should read the selected output voltage ±2%.
4. Vary the input voltage from 6V to 24V and adjust the
load current from 0A to 6A. The output voltage meter
should read the selected output voltage ±2%. Set the
input voltage to 12V and the load current to 6A.
5. Measure the output voltage ripple at J5 with a BNC
cable and oscilloscope.
6. To set the output voltage to 5V, turn off the input supply
power, apply the following changes listed below and
repeat steps 2 to 5:
JP10 JP3 JP4 JP2
VOUT Select MODE RUN TRACK/SS
5V CCM OFF SS
7. Set the load current to 0A. Set the RUN pin jumper
(JP4) to the OFF position. Power off the input supply.
8. For load transient tests, apply an adjustable positive pulse
signal between IOSTEP CLK and GND test points. The
pulse amplitude sets the load step current amplitude.
The pulse width should be short (<1ms) and pulse duty
cycle should be low (<15%) to limit the thermal stress
on the load transient circuit. The load step current can
be monitored with a BNC connected to J6 (10mV/A).
