LM25037-Q1 Push-Pull topology
Part Number: LM25037-Q1
1. How to ensure D=0.5 all the time?
2. Whether there is a crisis if LM25037 works in open loop mode?
Hi user4382362, Follow the datasheet to configure the controller to operate in voltage mode control. This is described in Section 7.4.1 in the datasheet. Disable the internal error amplifier by shorting the FB pin to ground. This is described in Section 7.3.4 of the datasheet. A simple pull down resistor on the COMP pin will set the voltage on this pin, this voltage should be adjusted to provide the desired duty cycle. The relationship between COMP voltage and duty cycle will vary according to the ramp amplitude that you have selected. This method will allow you to program any desired duty cycle. Two things to watch out for: 1) COMP has an internal pull-up resistor to VREF. This internal resistor will have a wide tolerance. If you require the duty cycle to be accurate across parts and temperature I suggest driving this pin from a relatively low impedance fixed voltage so that you are not affected by the tolerance of the internal pull-up resistor. 2) If you generate your ramp using VIN then the duty cycle will drop as input voltage rises. This may suit you since it will tend to regulate the output for changes in input voltage. If it does not suit, then I suggest that you generate the ramp using a constant voltage level instead of VIN to ensure fixed duty cycle. If the ramp amplitude is fixed and the COMP pin voltage are fixed the duty cycle will be fixed, since the PWM output is produced by comparing these two levels. Thanks Joe Leisten

In reply to Joe Leisten:
Is there any calculation to set RAMP and COMP voltage in order to achieve D=0.5?
My design is connect RAMP to CS, so I think D varies as the Vin changes, COMP has a pull-down resistor, so this pin can be given a fixed voltage by REF.
I want to calculate exact RAMP and COMP voltage at D=0.5, thanks!
