The ZL8101-30AEV2Z 30A demonstration board provides all of the circuitry required to demonstrate the features of the ZL8101 digital PWM controller. The ZL8101-30AEV2Z is a 6-layer board demonstrating a 30A synchronous buck converter. Sequencing, tracking, margining, plus other features can be evaluated using this board.
A USB to SMBus adapter board can be used to connect the demo board to a PC. The PMBus command set is accessed by using the PowerNavigator evaluation software from a PC running Microsoft Windows.
The ZL8101 is an integrated mixed-signal power conversion and management IC that combines an efficient step-down DC/DC converter with key power and thermal management functions in a single package. The ZL8101 incorporates current sharing and adaptive efficiency-optimization algorithms to provide a flexible, efficient power IC building block
