The device is an EXACT EQUIVALENT in functionality and parametrics to the compared device.
The TPS61097A-33 offers improved robustness of startup circuitry at low VIN voltages and reduced input current variance during shutdown.
TI does not recommend using this part in a new design. This product continues to be in production to support existing customers.
The TPS61097 provide a power supply solution for products powered by either a single-cell, two-cell, or three-cell alkaline, NiCd, or NiMH, or one-cell Li-Ion or Li-polymer battery. They can also be used in fuel cell or solar cell powered devices where the capability of handling low input voltages is essential. Possible output currents depend on the input-to-output voltage ratio. The devices provides output currents up to 100 mA at a 3.3-V output while using a single-cell Li-Ion or Li-Polymer battery. The boost converter is based on a current-mode controller using synchronous rectification to obtain maximum efficiency. The maximum average input current is limited to a value of 350 mA. The output voltage can be programmed by an external resistor divider, or it is fixed internally on the chip. The converter can be disabled to minimize battery drain. During shutdown, the battery is connected to the load to enable battery backup of critical functions on the load. The fixed output device is packaged in a 5-pin SOT-23 package (DBV) measuring 2.8 mm × 2.9 mm.
