Part Number: LM5170-Q1

Tool/software: TINA-TI

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.

Thank you.

  • Hi Assad,

    The engineer responsible for this part is currently out of office. He will be back by the week of the 28th.

    Hi Assad,

    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.
