depending on which version is ordered. Components common to
all versions are C1, C2, C3, JP1, and JP2. Resistor R1 and
Resistor R2 are used to adjust the output voltage above any fixed
voltage option. C4 and R3 are optional components for the
noise reduction network.

Figure 3. Output Voltage Measurement
Figure 3 show how the evaluation board can be connected to a
voltage source and a voltmeter for basic output voltage accuracy
measurements. A resistor can be used as the load for the
regulator. Ensure that the resistor has a power rating adequate
to handle the power expected to be dissipated across it. An
electronic load can also be used as an alternative. Ensure that
the voltage source can supply enough current for the expected
load levels.
The voltage source can now be turned on. If JP1 is inserted
(connecting EN to VIN for automatic startup), the regulator
powers up.
If the load current is large, the user needs to connect the voltmeter
as close as possible to the output capacitor to reduce the effects
of IR drops.
Use the following steps to connect to a voltage source and
voltmeter:

GND pads.
Connect the negative terminal (−) of the voltmeter to one
of the GND pads.

LINE REGULATION
DROPOUT VOLTAGE
For line regulation measurements, the regulator’s output is
monitored while its input is varied. For good line regulation,
the output must change as little as possible with varying input
levels. To ensure that the device is not in dropout during this
measurement, VIN must be varied between VOUTNOM + 0.5 V (or
2.3 V, whichever is greater) and VINMAX. For example, for an
ADM7170/ADM7171/ADM7172 with fixed 2.5 V output, VIN
needs to be varied between 3.0 V and 6.5 V. This measurement
can be repeated under different load conditions. Figure 4 shows
the typical line regulation performance of an ADM7170/
ADM7171/ADM7172 with fixed 2.5 V output.
Dropout voltage can be measured using the configuration shown
in Figure 3. Dropout voltage is defined as the input-to-output
voltage differential when the input voltage is set to the nominal
output voltage. This applies only for output voltages greater
than 2.3 V. Dropout voltage increases with larger loads. For
more accurate measurements, a second voltmeter can be used to
monitor the input voltage across the input capacitor. The input
supply voltage may need to be adjusted to account for IR drops,
especially if large load currents are used. Figure 6 shows a
typical curve of dropout voltage measurements with different
load currents.

For load regulation measurements, the regulator’s output is
monitored while the load is varied. For good load regulation,
the output must change as little as possible with varying load. The
input voltage must be held constant during this measurement. The
load current can be varied from 0 mA to 2 A. Figure 5 shows the
typical load regulation performance of an ADM7170/
ADM7171/ADM7172 with fixed 2.5 V output for an input
voltage of 3.0 V.

Ground current measurements can determine how much current
the internal circuits of the regulator are consuming while the
circuits perform the regulation function. To be efficient, the
regulator needs to consume as little current as possible.
Typically, the regulator uses the maximum current when
supplying its largest load level (2 A). Figure 8 shows the typical
ground current consumption for various load levels at an input
voltage of 3.0 V for an output voltage of 2.5 V.
