Product Overview

The AC164133 is an Buck/Boost Converter PICtail Plus Daughter Board. It's extension board that provides an easy and economical development platform for dsPIC SMPS and Digital Power Conversion GS family Digital Signal Controllers which are designed to provide low cost and efficient control for wide range of power supply topologies and power conversion applications. Buck/Boost Converter PICtail Plus Board consists of two independent DC/DC synchronous buck converters and one independent DC/DC boost converter. The control boards provide closed loop Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) control in the software to maintain the desired output voltage level. The dsPIC SMPS and Power Conversion family devices provide necessary memory and power supply peripherals which enables to build the control loops in software without the need for external circuit.
  • Digital control loop performance of power conversion can be evaluated
  • Excellent dynamic load performance & output sequencing
  • Multiphase buck and synchronous buck converter
  • Parallel operation of two buck converters
  • Multiple output control with single dsPIC33F GS SMPS device
  • Supported by Mindi Power Design and Simulator Tool
  • PMBus communication interface connector
  • Various fault indication & protection
  • With Explorer 16 use MA330020 (dsPIC33FJ16GS504) or MA330024 (dsPIC33FJ64GS610) plug in modules
  • With 16bit 28 pin Starter Development board use dsPIC33F16GS502 I/SP device
