The device is an EXACT EQUIVALENT in functionality and parametrics to the compared device.
TI does not recommend using this part in a new design. This product continues to be in production to support existing customers.
The TPS54540 is a 42 V, 5 A, step down regulator with an integrated high side MOSFET. The device survives load dump pulses up to 45V per ISO 7637. Current mode control provides simple external compensation and flexible component selection. A low ripple pulse skip mode reduces the no load supply current to 146 µA. Shutdown supply current is reduced to 2 µA when the enable pin is pulled low.
Undervoltage lockout is internally set at 4.3 V but can be increased using the enable pin. The output voltage start up ramp is internally controlled to provide a controlled start up and eliminate overshoot.
A wide switching frequency range allows either efficiency or external component size to be optimized. Output current is limited cycle-by-cycle. Frequency foldback and thermal shutdown protects internal and external components during an overload condition.
The TPS54540 is available in an 8-terminal thermally enhanced HSOP PowerPAD™ package.
