SLVSBB4G August 2012 – June 2018 TPS54360
The following formulas show how to estimate the TPS54360 power dissipation under continuous conduction mode (CCM) operation. These equations should not be used if the device is operating in discontinuous conduction mode (DCM).
The power dissipation of the IC includes conduction loss (PCOND), switching loss (PSW), gate drive loss (PGD) and supply current (PQ). Example calculations are shown with the 12 V typical input voltage of the design example.
For given TA,
For given TJMAX = 150°C
There will be additional power losses in the regulator circuit due to the inductor ac and dc losses, the catch diode and PCB trace resistance impacting the overall efficiency of the regulator.
