ADP5034 ADIsimPower Simulate File

Dear All:

ADP5034 ADI will provide ADIsimPower excel file to user simulate use it? for example: BUCK1/BUCK2 inductor SPEC./Size Selection or BUCK1/BUCK2 conversion efficiency simulation and environmental temperature simulation ... etc. I need to use this tool to design my products. this can speed up my debug time , when you can give us to use? If no BCUK1/BUCK2 Inductor range is how much?

Best Regards,
Jacky

  • Hi Jacky,

    You could use the "ADP21xx Buck Regulator Design Tool" as it covers the ADP2138 3MHz Buck regulator which is similar to the ADP5034 Bucks. Be wary though that the ADP2138 maximum load current is only at 800mA, so when you enter in the design criteria in the excel file, limit 'Iout' to 800mA. If you go above 800mA, the tool will remove the ADP2138 from the list of ICs.

    The tool will then give you a list of suggested ICs, L1, Cin and Cout components depending on which criteria you designed for. Start by choosing the ADP2138 IC from the BOM list. If you would operate upto 1.2A load, using the ADP5034, it is highly likely that the Cin and Cout values are still applicable for your requirements, but I suggest you check the current rating of the inductors you would choose so that it's rated above 1.2A to make sure the inductor does not saturate to ensure good regulation up to full load.

    You could download the tool from this link:

    I suggest that you also take a look at the 'Applications Information' section in the ADP5034 datasheet, pg.20. There's a 2-page discussion on how to choose the appropriate inductor, input and output capacitors, including a table for suggested components. It is stated in the datasheet that for best performance of the ADP5034, use inductors between 0.7uH to 3uH. Hope this helps!
