LM2574 Series Buck Regulator Design Procedure
FIGURE 8. LM2574HV-ADJ Inductor Selection Guide
Given:
= Regulated Output Voltage
V
OUT
(Max) = Maximum Input Voltage
V
IN
I
F = Switching Frequency (Fixed at 52 kHz)
1. Programming Output Voltage (Selecting R1 and R2, as
shown in Figure 2 )
Use the following formula to select the appropriate resistor
values.
R
can be between 1k and 5k. (For best temperature coeffi-
1
cient and stability with time, use 1% metal film resistors)
2. Inductor Selection (L1)
A. Calculate the inductor Volt • microsecond constant,
E • T (V • µs), from the following formula:
B. Use the E • T value from the previous formula and match
it with the E • T number on the vertical axis of the Inductor
Value Selection Guide shown in Figure 8 .
C. On the horizontal axis, select the maximum load current.
D. Identify the inductance region intersected by the E • T
value and the maximum load current value, and note the in-
ductor value for that region.
E. Select an appropriate inductor from the table shown in Fig-
ure 3 . Part numbers are listed for three inductor manufactur-
ers. The inductor chosen must be rated for operation at the
LM2574 switching frequency (52 kHz) and for a current rating
of 1.5 x I
. For additional inductor information, see the in-
ductor section in the application hints section of this data
sheet.
