SLVSEL7B April 2019 – October 2019 TPS61390
The TPS61390 integrates a power save mode with pulse frequency modulation (PFM) at the light load. When a light load condition occurs, the COMP pin voltage naturally decreases and reduces the peak current. When the COMP pin voltage further goes down with the load lowered and reaches the pre-set low threshold, the output of the error amplifier is clamped at this threshold and does not go down any more. If the load is further lowered, the device skips the switching cycles and reduces the switching losses and improves efficiency at the light load condition by reducing the average switching frequency.
