LM63615-Q1: Is it okay to use a resistor constant other than 100 kΩ for feedback?(LM63615 and LM63625)

Part Number: LM63615-Q1

Hi support team,

According to the data sheet, "100 kohm is recommended for the feed back resistor constant (FBT)  that determines Vout."

However, we want to use a resistor of 100 kΩ or less.

What is the range of resistance values that can be used?




  • Hi Toshimitsu,

    Yes, you can use a resistor of 100kohm or less(large than 10kohm). Usually RFBT is between 10kohm and 1Mohm. Smaller values of resistance reduce noise sensitivity, but also reduce the light-load efficiency. The recommended value for RFBT is 100 kΩ with a maximum value of 1 MΩ. If 1 MΩ is selected for RFBT, then a feedforward capacitor must be used across this resistor to provide adequate loop phase margin (see Section I answered this question in another post of yours. You can also find the answer to this question in the datasheet. Thanks.
