Vout3 of ADP1031 not used

Category: Hardware
Product Number: ADP1031


I have a question. Please tell me.

If VOUT3 is not used, can VOUT3, FB3 and SW3 be left unconnected?

I think the ADP1032 is recommended, but I am considering whether it can be replaced because there are no parts.

Best Regards.

  • Hi baggio,

    The inverter/VOUT3 on the ADP1031 can be disable by:

    1. removing the inductor connected to SW3, SW3 should be floating.
    2. VOUT3 should be tied to GND.
    3. FB3 must be supplied within this range 0.8V < VFB3 < 0.8V +10% in reference to VOUT3/GND to disable the SW3 from turning on.
      1. The voltage on FB3 can be generated from VOUT2 through resistor dividers. For example, for 5V VOUT2 – use 10kohm across the FB3 and VOUT3/GND. Use 51.5kohm resistor across VOUT2 and FB3. This resistor divider combination will give 0.818V on FB3 in reference to VOUT3/GND.

    This will not only disable the switching of the SW3 but also retain the PWRGD functionality.
