RT7252BZSP Evaluation Board

EVB_RT7252BZSP

Share

The RT7252B is a high efficiency, monolithic synchronous step-down DC/DC converter that operates at 800kHz and delivers up to 2A output current from a 4V to 17V input supply. The RT7252B’s current mode architecture allows the transient response to be optimized. Cycle-by-cycle current limit provides protection against shorted outputs and soft-start eliminates input current surge during start-up. Fault conditions also include output under voltage protection, output over voltage protection, and thermal shutdown. The low current (<5μA) shutdown mode provides output disconnect, enabling easy power management in battery-powered systems. The RT7252B is available in a SOP-8 (Exposed Pad) package

Purpose

The RT7252B is a high-efficiency current mode synchronous step-down regulator that can deliver up to 2A output current from a wide input voltage range of 4V to 17V. This document explains the function and use of the RT7252B evaluation board (EVB) and provides information to enable operation and modification of the evaluation board and circuit to suit individual requirements..

Power-up & Measurement Procedure

1.Apply a 12V nominal input power supply (4V < VIN < 17V) to the VIN and GND terminals.

2.The EN voltage is pulled to logic high by R4 (100kΩ to VIN) to enable operation. Drive EN high (>2.5V) to enable operation or low (<0.4V) to disable operation.

3.Verify the output voltage (approximately 3.3V) between VOUT and GND.

4.Connect an external load up to 2A to the VOUT and GND terminals and verify the output voltage and current.

Output Voltage Setting

Set the output voltage with the resistive divider (R1, R2) between VOUT and GND with the midpoint connected to FB. The output is set by the following formula:

The installed VOUT capacitors (C4, C5) are 22μF, 16V X5R ceramic types. Do not exceed their operating voltage range and consider their voltage coefficient (capacitance vs. bias voltage) and ensure that the capacitance is sufficient to maintain stability and provide sufficient transient response for your application. This can be verified by checking the output transient response as described in the RT7252 IC datasheet.
