ADP5070 Calculations

The data sheet mentions formulas for calculating inductor values in boost and inverting mode. I tried to apply this formula with samples from Table 10 (Recommended Boost regulator components) in the data sheet. But i was not able to get a match. Have I missed something ?

    The numbers in the table are hand-crafted values that we have optimised in simulation for the input/output parameters specified. These wont entirely match the equations which give a solution optimised for a specific load.

    I would generally recommend using the ADIsimPower tools which will optimise the components for you and generate a simulation model you can analyse - these are all a free download from the product page.

  • Actually i have already done that, but i want to understand the circuit and the design process better. More so since I am a beginner in the field.

    Would I be successful if i used the formulas mentioned in the data sheet and tried to obtain the solution provided by ADIsimPower tools?
