At last, the problem of the error amplifier driving capability was spoken out. I encountered this issue when using the TL5001 converter IC. The application note recommended the feedback loop components values, which were unacceptable for the design and the impedances were to increase by the factor of 20. If the load capability of an error amplifier is violated a start-up overshoot and undershoot are to be anticipated. This may deteriorate the power supply and its load viability. The TI app engineers I had spoken to agreed on that but the application note for the TL5001 has not been corrected yet. It is very important to obtain the expression for the feedback loop with the assumption of the finite bandwidth of the error amplifier, which would allow for formalizing the design process. Something has been done by the author of these lines but the expression comes out to be very complicated. Those who are interested in may try on their own.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
