8.2.6 Voltage Tracking
The DNM/DNL family was designed for applications that have output voltage tracking
requirements during power-up and power-down. The devices have a TRACK pin to implement
three types of tracking method: sequential, ratio-metric and simultaneous. TRACK simplifies
the task of supply voltage tracking in a power system by enabling modules to track each
other, or any external voltage, during power-up and power-down.
By connecting multiple modules together, customers can get multiple modules to track their
output voltages to the voltage applied on the TRACK pin.
Detailed Description
Sequential Implementation
Sequential start-up is implemented by connecting the power good signal (PWRGD pin) of PS1
to the TRACK pin of PS2 with a resistor–capacitor (RC) circuit. The power up and down that
waveforms in Figures 4 and 5. In Figure 4, the 5V PS1 supply ramps up first. When supply
reaches its final 5V steady state value, the open collector output of the PWRGD pin releases
to the TRACK pin and the PS2 output voltage rises at the rate of the RC time constant. In
Figure 5, the PWRGD pin pull low by PS1 ENABLE off or the PS1 output voltage is below 90%
of the desired regulated voltage. The TRACK pin is pulled low and the PS2 power down.
Figure 3 shows the circuit diagram of sequential start-up when VoPS2 tracks the PWRGD of
PS1.

Ratio-Metric Implementation
Ratio–metric is implemented by the selection of the resistor values of the voltage divider on
the TRACK pin. Resistors R1 and R2, in Figure 6 determine the tracking method that is
implemented.
To simplify the tracking design, R2 initial set value equal 20KΩ at internal circuit and only set
one resistor R1 for different tracking method. Figure 6 shows the circuit diagram of RatioMetric start-up when VoPS2 tracks the VoPS1.

For Ratio-Metric applications that need the PS1 and PS2 outputs arrive regulation set point at
same time, use equation 1 to calculate R1, set △ V=Voset,PS1–Voset,PS2 and △ V will be
negative. The waveforms of power up and down are showed in Figures 7 and 8.

* 20 K Ω ------------------------------------------------------(1)
Note:
1. Vref =0.4×Voset,PS2 , please refer to Table 5 for Vref set value.
2. △V is the maximum difference of voltage between PS1 and PS2 supply voltage.
For example, the PS1 Voset,PS1=5V, the PS2 Voset,PS2=3.3V, R1 is calculated as follows:
R1 =
[(3.3 + 1.7) − 1.32]
* 20 K = 55.75 K Ω

Figure 7. Ratio–metric tracking Power up
Figure 8. Ratio–metric tracking Power down
For Ratio-Metric applications that need the PS2 supply voltage rises first at power up and falls
second at power down, use equation 2 to calculate R1, set △V≦0.4×Voset,PS2 and △V will be
negative. The waveforms of power up and down are showed in Figures 9 and 10.
R1 =
[(Vo set , ps 2 − ∆V ) − Vref ]

Note:
1. Vref =0.4×Voset,PS2 , please refer to Table 5 for Vref set value.
2. △V is defined as the voltage difference between VoPS1 and VoPS2 when VoPS2 reaches
its rated voltage.

For example, the PS1 Voset,PS1=5V, the PS2 Voset,PS2=3.3V, R1 is calculated as follows:

Simultaneous Implementation
Similar to the ratio-metric implementation, simultaneous tracking is implemented using a voltage
divider on the TRACK pin. The objective is to minimize the voltage difference between the power
supply outputs during power up and down. The waveforms of power up and down are showed in
Figures 13 and 14.
For type A (DNXXX0A0XXXX A), the simultaneous tracking can be accomplished by connecting
VoPS1 of PS1 to the TRACK pin of PS2. Figure 11 shows the circuit diagram of voltage Simultaneous
start-up when VoPS2 tracks VoPS1 (only for type A).

Notes on the use of Track function:
1. For proper voltage tracking, first, The ENABLE On/Off pin of the PS2 module is left
unconnected (or tied to GND for negative logic modules or tied to VIN for positive logic
modules), so that the modules are ON by default and second applied input voltage to the
PS1 and PS2. The TRACK pin is held at ground potential for duration of input voltage
reaches its minimum input voltage (VIN,min) and then held for at least 10mS thereafter.
This brief period gives the modules time to complete their internal soft-start initialization.
2. The PS2 output will not follow the PS1 voltage until the PS2 has completed its soft-start
time. After this time, PS2 is capable of both sinking and sourcing current when following
the voltage at the TRACK pin.
3. Notice that power down by removing the input voltage may not provide proper power
tracking below under voltage lockout limit where the both integrated switches are off. So,
using the ENABLE On/Off signal of PS1 for power down is the preferred option for power
tracking.
4. The TRACK pin absolute maximum voltage cannot over the Vin.
5. For type A: When Tracking is unused, put R1 equal to 1KΩ and connect TRACK pin to
+Vcc
For type C: When Tracking is unused, put R1 equal to 30.1KΩ and connect TRACK pin to
+Vcc
Test
1) Put R56 to take the place of R1 on the POL evaluation board by use the value from above
equation for different tracking purpose.
2) Use channel 1 and channel 2 measures the output voltage of PS1 and PS2.
3) Prepare turn on, disable remote On/Off of the PS1, enable remote On/off of the PS2, and
supply input voltage to PS1 and PS2.
4) For the power on, enable switch on of PS1. In the meantime, to track power up by scope
trigger function.
5) For the power down, enable switch off of PS1 to track power down.
6) Illustration of tacking features can be found in the section of Detailed Description.
8.3 Dynamic Characteristics
8.3.1 Output Voltage Deviation
Output Voltage Deviation is defined as the response of the converter to a sudden step change
in the output load current. The output voltage deviation is characterized by two parameters:
Maximum Output Voltage Deviation and Response Time (please refer to the data sheet for the
detailed specification). The value of dynamic resistance for a defined step current is defined
as:
Rdynamic =
Vout
0.5 * Imax

Turn on the fan.
Adjust the input voltage to the desired operating point.
Set the electronic or resistive load at 50% of maximum load.
Change channel 1 to scope probe and measure across the Rdynamic .
5) Set the switch SW2 to the converter ON.
6) Set channel 2 on the oscilloscope to be AC coupled and to 50mV/Div and for 5mS/Div. Set
the trigger to auto and adjust the trigger point at a negative going pulse for step load
change from 50% to 100% of Io or adjust the trigger point at positive going pulse for step
load change from 100% to 50% (Please refer to data sheet for the detailed information.)
7) Measure the Peak-to-Peak deviation and capture the waveform as required.
8.3.2 Turn-On Response Time.
Turn-On Response Time is defined as the time it takes for the output to rise to within 90% of
its final value from the time when the converter is enabled. The rise time is deliberately made
slower to reduce the inrush current and to eliminate any overshoot in the output voltage.
These test functions have two categories.
1.) Turn on the module by using the External switch to control input voltage.
2.) Turn on module by using the Enable on/off.

Turn on the fan.
Set the enable switch SW2 to the converter ON.
Adjust the input voltage to the desired operating point.
Set the electronic or resistive Load to the desired operating point.
Read and note the output voltage (DVM3) and input voltage (DVM2).
Read and note the input and output currents from the DVM1 and the electronic load.
Use the following formulas to calculate the efficiency:
Efficiency= (Pout/Pin) × 100(%)
Pin = Iin × Vin
Pout = Iout × Vout
