Accurate Input/Output Current Control: ±5% Over Temperature Accurate Output Voltage Control: ±1% Wide VIN Range: 1.6V to 18V 1.4MHz Switching Frequency High Output Voltage: Up to 35V Low VCESAT Switch: 200mV at 1A Available in (3mm × 3mm × 0.8mm) 10-Pin DFN and 10-Pin MSOP Packages

The LT®1618 step-up DC/DC converter combines a traditional voltage feedback loop and a unique current feedback loop to operate as a constant-current, constant-voltage source. This fixed frequency, current mode switcher operates from a wide input voltage range of 1.6V to 18V, and the high switching frequency of 1.4MHz permits the use of tiny, low profile inductors and capacitors. The current sense voltage is set at 50mV and can be adjusted using the IADJ pin. Available in the 10-Pin (3mm × 3mm) Exposed Pad DFN and 10-pin MSOP packages, the LT1618 provides a complete solution for constant-current applications.

Do not leave the IADJ pin open. and is controlled by a logic signal without the need for a variable PWM or DC control signal. Pick R1 and R2 so that the output voltage will not go too high if the load is disconnected or if the load current drops below the preset value. Do not leave the pin floating. SEPICs. If a large value resistor (≥2MΩ) is placed between the IADJ pin and ground. With the IADJ pin tied to ground. have an output that is DCisolated from the input. so an input current limit not only helps soft-start the output but also provides excellent short-circuit protection. the constant-current loop of the LT1618 can also be used to provide an accurate input current limit. the circuit in Figure 2 works well. This prevents the voltage loop from interfering with the current loop in current source applications. simply add an RC filterto convert the PWM signal into a DC voltage for the IADJ pin. Boost converters cannot provide output short-circuit protection. Applying a positive DC voltage to the IADJ pin will decrease the current sense voltage according to the following formula: VISENSE = 1.LT1618 APPLICATIONS INFORMATION Setting Output Voltage To set the output voltage.8)VIADJ 25 For example. When the NMOS transistor is on. the current sense voltage will be reduced to about 18mV. Typically choose R1 and R2 so that the overvoltage value will be about 20% to 30% higher than the normal output voltage (when in constant-current mode). it should be tied to ground. use the FB pin for overvoltage protection.

and always use a ground plane under the switching regulator to minimize interplane coupling. use the 2kΩ and 10nF as a starting point. output diode and output capacitor contains nanosecond rise and fall times and should be kept as short as possible. in turn. To prevent radiation and high frequency resonance problems. but values of 2kΩ and 10nF will be a good choice for many designs. For these applications. proper layout of the high frequency switching path is essential. as this may allow the inductor ripple current to vary widely (even though the average input current and the average inductor current will still be regulated). The signal path including the switch. An external resistor and capacitor (or sometimes just a capacitor) are placed at the VC pin to provide a pole and a zero (or just a pole) to ensure proper loop compensation. so the VC pin pole and zero are positioned to provide the best loop response. A thorough analysis of the switching regulator control loop is not within the scope of this data sheet.LT1618 APPLICATIONS INFORMATION When sensing input current. the constantcurrent loop response can usually be improved by reducing the RC value. switch rise and fall times are made as short as possible. Do not place the sense resistor between the input source and the input decoupling capacitor. For those wishing to optimize the compensation. This will regulate the average inductor current and maintain a consistent inductor ripple current. The high speed switching current path is shown in Figure 3. Keep the output switch (SW pin). which will. Numerous other poles and zeroes are present in the closed loop transfer function of a switching regulator. the sense resistor should be placed in front of the inductor (between the decoupling capacitor and the inductor) as shown in the circuits in the Typical Applications section.

This helps to provide additional filtering of the PWM signal at the output of the error amplifier (the VC pin). and will not be presented here. or by adding a capacitor (with a value of approximately CC /10) in parallel with the RC and CC compensation network. which allows the loop response to be optimized for each application. diode and output capacitor as close together as possible. the resistor is usually not included in the compensation network. Switch Node Considerations To maximize efficiency. maintain a well regulated input current. Frequency Compensation The LT1618 has an external compensation pin (VC). Since the inductor current is a triangular waveform (not a DC waveform like the output current) some tweaking of the compensation values (RC and CC on the VC pin) may be required to ensure a clean inductor ripple current while the constant-current loop is in effect. For LED backlight applications where a pulse-width modulation (PWM) signal is used to drive the IADJ pin. Minimize the length and area of all traces connected to the switch pin.
