Next, compute the duty cycle, D.

First, choose a switching frequency between kHz and 1MHz. This is fine, since the application note states we want a phase margin between 30 and degrees.

This means that in gain it acts like a zero, but in datasjeet it acts like a pole. This means raising the frequency or the datasjeet by at least a factor of 3. It can withstand at least V to the drain, and has a gate threshold of at most 4V. Again, Adafruit gives this as 4.

LM overview, product comparison and replacement search

Shut up lmm3478, converter! There’s a COMP pin on the converter where you put a resistor and capacitor in series. These margins are important because the poles and zeros shift with varying load and input voltage, and without these margins your circuit could go unstable. So this is really a good thing.


And so I get a current of 4. So, in fact, this converter with the components so far needs no compensation network, and we can leave the COMP pin unconnected. And so I get a sense resistor of 0. And, a Schottky diode is recommended for high speed. Here’s the one for the boost converter: Anyway, this is a good worked example, and very relevant! But, of course, this will not be the case. Conclusion Well actually there is no conclusion until I actually get the parts in to build this thing.

So based on the inductance and current, I can choose an inductor that can handle this current. And now for the complex pole. Thus, instead of a maximum sense resistance of 0. After the design procedure, here’s what I ended up with: With that resistor, the current limit would be 5.

Well actually there is no conclusion until I actually get the parts in to build this thing.

A boost converter design

We first calculate the maximum sense resistor for current mode loop stability loop stability is always a good thing:. There is a second resistor which goes between the current sense pin of the converter and the current sense resistor. Our chosen sense vatasheet is bigger than this by a factor of 3. Again, this is from the Adafruit calculator, but here is the formula: The pole is caused by the output datashdet with the load, and the complex pole is caused by the switching action.


This rules out the popular MC, which has a max duty cycle of 0.

The gain margin is minus the gain at which the phase is degrees. Compute the maximum current flowing through the inductor. The converter is a feedback loop, and such feedback loops need to be stable, otherwise your power supply might fail at certain frequencies.

Duty cycle Next, compute the duty cycle, D. Next, we locate the simple pole as follows: We can see that unity gain occurs at 2. If not, there are chips specifically designed to drive MOSFET gates at higher currents to force them on and off quickly. However, we now do not need a slope compensation resistor, and everyone is happy. Now that we have our pole and zero frequencies, we need to know what the DC gain is.

To power my boost converter, I’d like to use a 12VDC wall adapter.
