TPS53915 Step-Down SWIFT™ Converter


TI's 1.5-18 V input (4.5-25 V bias), 12 A synchronous buck converter with PMBus™

Texas Instruments' TPS53915 is a small-sized, synchronous buck converter with an adaptive on-time D-CAP3 control mode. The device offers ease-of-use and low external-component count for space-conscious power systems.

This device features high-performance integrated MOSFETs, accurate 0.5% 0.6 V reference, and an integrated boost switch. Competitive features include very-low external-component count, fast load-transient response, auto-skip mode operation, internal soft-start control, and no requirement for compensation. The device also features programmability and fault report via PMBus to simplify the power-supply design.

A forced continuous-conduction mode helps meet tight voltage-regulation accuracy requirements for performance DSPs and FPGAs. The TPS53915 is available in a 28-pin QFN package and is specified from –40°C to 85°C ambient temperature.
