The ZSPM8010-KIT single-phase open-loop evaluation board is a design platform providing the minimum circuitry needed to characterize critical performance of the ZSPM9010 DrMOS driver plus MOSFET multi-chip module. The board has been designed as an open-loop control with only common passive components in a synchronous buck converter without a PWM controller. The board can also be used to evaluate the features of the ZSPM9010 in a closed loop configuration when combined with the ZSPM1000 digital single-phase PWM controller.
The evaluation board is a high density, high-efficiency design, with a 1 MHz operating frequency and peak efficiency of over 92% with a 1.0V Vout condition. This board also demonstrates the ease of layout for printed circuit board artwork. Since the ZSPM9010 pin map is industry standard, it is easy to compare its performance to other DrMOS devices without changing other components.
