This pin allows to set two different parameters independently:

- Internal compensation settings for the control loop
- The switching frequency in PWM mode from 1.8 MHz to 4 MHz

A resistor from COMP/FSET to GND changes the compensation as well as the switching frequency. The change in compensation allows you to adapt the device to different values of output capacitance. The resistor must be placed close to the pin to keep the parasitic capacitance on the pin to a minimum. The compensation setting is sampled at start-up of the converter, so a change in the resistor during operation only has an effect on the switching frequency but not on the compensation.

To save external components, the pin can also be directly tied to VIN or GND to set a pre-defined switching frequency / compensation. Do not leave the pin floating.

The switching frequency has to be selected based on the input voltage and the output voltage to meet the specifications for the minimum on-time and minimum off-time.

For example: V_{IN} = 5 V, V_{OUT} = 1 V --> duty cycle (DC) = 1 V / 5 V = 0.2

- with t
_{on}= DC × T --> t_{on,min}= 1 / f_{s,max}× DC - --> f
_{s,max}= 1 / t_{on,min}× DC = 1 / 0.075 µs · 0.2 = 2.67 MHz

The compensation range has to be chosen based on the minimum capacitance used. The capacitance can be increased from the minimum value as given in Table 9-1 and Table 9-2, up to the maximum of 470 µF in all of the three compensation ranges. If the capacitance of an output changes during operation, for example, when load switches are used to connect or disconnect parts of the circuitry, the compensation has to be chosen for the minimum capacitance on the output. With large output capacitance, the compensation must be done based on that large capacitance to get the best load transient response. Compensating for large output capacitance but placing less capacitance on the output can lead to instability.

The switching frequency for the different compensation setting is determined by the following equations.

For compensation (comp) setting 1:

Equation 1.

For compensation (comp) setting 2:

Equation 2.

For compensation (comp) setting 3:

Refer to *Section 10.1.3.2* for further details on the output capacitance required depending on the
output voltage.

A too high resistor value for R_{CF} is decoded as "tied to V_{IN}", a value below the lowest range is decoded as "tied to GND". The minimum output capacitance in Table 9-1 and Table 9-2 is for capacitors close to the output of the device. If the capacitance is distributed, a lower compensation setting can be required. All values are effective capacitance, including all tolerances, aging, dc bias effect, and so forth.
