LDC0851EVM
The Texas Instruments LDC0851 evaluation module (EVM) helps designers evaluate the operation and
performance of the LDC0851 Inductive Switch. The EVM contains one LDC0851 soldered onto the EVM
PCB and options to operate with battery or USB power. A 50-kΩ trim pot is also included to change the
switching distance threshold making it easy to evaluate for a wide variety of use cases.

EVM Interface
The LDC0851EVM can be powered with 5 V via the micro-USB connection (J3) on the top side of the
EVM. Alternatively, a 3-V battery via the battery connection (BT1) on the backside of the EVM may be
used to directly supply the LDC0851 with 3 V. Use Supply Switch (S2) to select the desired power source.
The voltage on the ADJ pin of the LDC0851 at startup will determine the distance at which a metal target
will be detected. The voltage can be easily controlled through the 50-kΩ trim pot (R5). Note, the ADJ value
is only sampled once on startup or after EN has toggled low to high with switch S1.

Break-Away Sections
Figure 5. EVM Break-Away Sections
The LDC0851 EVM can be broken into 3 discrete sections: a 5-V to 3-V section which includes the USB
interface section, an LDC0851 section, and a sensor section which contains the LREF and LSENSE
sensors.
Figure 6. Break-Away Sensor (Top)
Figure 7. Break-Away Sensor (Bottom)
Break-Away Sensor Section: The Sensor section of the LDC0851EVM can be broken along the
indicated line to separate the sensor from the LDC0851 IC. A three pin header is available on the
LDC0851 section to connect to different sensors or for remote location. If the cable connection between
the sensor and the LDC0851EVM is longer than 2 cm, use twisted pair or coaxial to connect back to the
LDC0851 section.
The EVM sensor is a 4 layer stacked coil design, with the top 2 layers used for the sensing coil, and the
bottom 2 layers used for the reference coil.

Theory of Operation
The LDC0851 is an inductance based switch for contactless and robust applications such as presence
detection, event counting, and coarse position detection. The device is connected to a reference coil
(LREF) and a sensing coil (LSENSE). The output of the LDC0851 switches when the inductance of
LSENSE drops below LREF which is caused by an approaching metal target. The LDC0851 EVM
employs a stacked coil arrangement, in which the LSENSE sensor coil is closer to the metal target than
the LREF reference coil when approached from the top side (LSENSE side). The user can take advantage
of the Offset Adjust feature to change the switching distance (dswitch). The offset is added to LREF so
that increasing the ADJ code causes the LDC0851 to switch at a closer distance. The ADJ code is
determined by the voltage level on the ADJ pin at device power on and by toggling the Enable pin low
then high.

Figure 9. Switch Distance with Offset
A potentiometer (R5) has been included to make adjusting the threshold easier for prototyping. Note that
rotating the potentiometer clockwise towards the MIN direction decreases the ADJ value and results in a
longer switching threshold. Similarly, rotating R5 counter clockwise towards the MAX position increases
the ADJ value and decreases the switching distance. The Enable pin should be toggled low then high to
set a new switching threshold.
Figure 10. Adjust the Offset
The ADJ value can be achieved by setting the combination of R4 + R5 to the values in Table 5.

dswitch is the approximated switching distance for a stacked coil sensor with good separation between
LSENSE coil layers and LREF coil layers. Note that for side-by-side coils, the switching distance uses
a factor of 0.4.
dcoil is the coil diameter
ADJCode is the desired value from Table 5
(1)
For example, consider a coil with a diameter of 20 mm. An ADJ code of 1 yields a switching distance of
5.6 mm, and an ADJ code of 15 yields a switching distance of 0.375 mm. This method helps approximate
the switching distance, but the actual response of the coils may vary slightly which is why it is important to
prototype the coil as can be seen in Figure 11 below.

Figure 11. Switching Distance of 20mm Stacked Coil
It should be noted that the sensing distance is determined by the diameter of the coils, inductance
matching, and the spacing or PCB thickness between the LSENSE coil and LREF coil layers. To achieve
the maximum sensing range for stacked coils, the spacing (h) between the LSENSE and LREF coils
should be as thick as possible. Refer to Figure 12 below.

It is also recommended to use a target of equal or larger size to the coil diameter to get the longest
sensing range.

Supply Power to the LDC0851EVM
Power can be supplied either through the 5-V micro-USB connection (J3) or through the 3.0-V battery slot
(BT1) on the backside of the EVM.
3.1.1
5-V Micro-USB to 3-V Device Power
Connect a USB cable between the 5-V source and the micro-USB connector (J3) on EVM. An onboard
LDO will convert the 5-V source into 3.0 V which can be measured at the USB test point shown below.

Adjust the Threshold
The EVM has a potentiometer (R5) which can be used to control the voltage level on the ADJ pin. Rotate
the pot clockwise towards “MIN” so that ADJ value is in the minimum offset position, which has the longest
sensing range.
Figure 17. Adjust the Offset
To set a new threshold, toggle the EN RESET switch (S1) to re-sample the ADJ pin. This must be done
every time a new threshold is set.

Detecting presence of Metal Targets
With no target is present the OUTPUT LED (D3) should be off. If D3 is on or remains on, increase the
offset with R5 and toggle EN with S1 as shown in the previous step.
Figure 19. Observe Status of OUT LED
Bring a conductive target close to the LSENSE coil. The OUT LED (D3) should turn on when the target is
1 to 8 mm above the EVM sensing coil depending on the ADJ value.
Figure 20. Bring Metal Target Close to LSENSE
To change the switching threshold simply adjust the value of R5, toggle EN with S1 and retest. Note that
during active operation the ADJ pin draws ~10 µA of current will alter the resistance reading if using a
multi meter to check the value. In order to properly set or check the ADJ resistance when using a multi
meter, turn off the device, remove the battery, and set S2 to BAT. The resistance measured across R4 +
R5 should be set according to Table 5 for a desired ADJ setting.
This process can be repeated and fine-tuned for a variety of applications including open/close proximity
switches, white goods, home security and tamper detection, e-meters, and printers.

PCB Breakoff Sections and Compliance
The different sections of the EVM may be broken apart for ease of prototyping and development. Please
note that breaking apart the sections voids the warranty. In addition, the stated performance and
compliance specifications of the EVM cannot be guaranteed when sections have been broken apart.
The LDC0851EVM has the ability to be powered by either connecting a USB cable or by a 3 V battery as
mentioned in Section 3.1. Compliance was evaluated with both Battery powered and USB powered
options. Note that if a USB cable is used for powering the EVM, ferrites need to be added to each end of
the cable. Fair-rite, Model #0431164951 (or equivalent) are to be installed with one turn each at each end
when a USB cable is used for powering the EVM. If provided, the shielded USB cable is less than 3m in
length. If not, and one is to be purchased for use with this EVM, it is required to be no longer than 3m to
retain the stated performance and compliance.
