Part Number: LM5170-Q1
Hello, I am currently using the LM5170-Q1 to test some simulations in TINA TI for a customer. I have however some questions regarding the TINA TI reference design given on the product page.
In the situation I am simulating, the LM5170 is used as a buck boost between high voltage (10V) and low voltage (4V) batteries. The TINA TI reference design uses however a block called ''ISETA_DRIVER" which seems to be a library of some sorts which was originally configured for 48 V Vin. I was wondering if this block needs to be altered in order for the new configuration that I presented to work properly, because at the moment I am slightly confused as to how the ISETA_DRIVER affects the results and I am not too experienced with the code used in it. Do I even have to change anything in the ISETA_DRIVER block at all or is it simply for monitoring certain values? At the moment I have been able to get a stable configuration already without changing said block.
The engineer responsible for this part is currently out of office. He will be back by the week of the 28th.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

Mostly you don't need to modify it if I understand your question correctly. However, I am not able to download the tsc file during my trip. Can you send me a picture of what you referred to? I will reply ASAP but please expect some delays due to my trip schedule.

Thank you for responding while on a business trip. The part that I'm referring to is:
To further explain my problem: like I said in the description I'm trying to simulate this part as a buck boost from 10 V to 4 V (10 A total low voltage rail current), I have however trouble with getting a proper configuration, so I was wondering if some tweaking has to be done in this block. In buck mode I get a steady 4 V but in boost I cannot get it to 10 V but only to around 5.5 V. I have tried an inductor value of Lm1 = Lm2 = 11,45 uH and current sense resistor Rcs1 = Rcs2 = 10 mOhm (which I calculated from the datasheet and also the Excel design tool, switching freq = 100 kHz). In boost mode however I can only get it to 10 V by substantially decreasing the current sense resistors which is not possible because I need a single configuration for both modes. Hence my question if this block might be influencing my measurement results and how.
I hope you can help me with this problem and I'm looking forward to your response.
In reply to Assad Bahari:
The LM5170 does not have such a corresponding function block and there is relationship between these signals. So I believe it is used by the model creator to group some signals. I don;t think you need to touch it in your simulation.
