PWM and PSM Operation

The TPS82150 includes an on-time (tON) circuitry. This tON, in steady-state operation in PWM and PSM modes, is estimated as:


Equation 1. TPS82150 TPS82130_EQ_ton.gif


In PWM mode, the TPS82150 operates with pulse width modulation in continuous conduction mode (CCM) with a tON shown in Equation 1 at medium and heavy load currents. A PWM switching frequency of typically 2.0MHz is achieved by this tON circuitry. The device operates in PWM mode as long as the output current is higher than half the inductor's ripple current estimated by Equation 2.


Equation 2. TPS82150 EQ_ILripple.gif


To maintain high efficiency at light loads, the device enters Power Save Mode seamlessly when the load current decreases. This happens when the load current becomes smaller than half the inductor's ripple current. In PSM, the converter operates with reduced switching frequency and with a minimum quiescent current to maintain high efficiency. PSM is also based on the tON circuitry. The switching frequency in PSM is estimated as:


Equation 3. TPS82150 EQ_FSWPSM.gif


In PSM, the output voltage rises slightly above the nominal output voltage in PWM mode. This effect is reduced by increasing the output capacitance. The output voltage accuracy in PSM operation is reflected in the electrical specification table and given for a 22-µF output capacitor.

For very small output voltages, an absolute minimum on-time of about 80ns is kept to limit switching losses. The operating frequency is thereby reduced from its nominal value, which keeps efficiency high. Also the off-time can reach its minimum value at high duty cycles. The output voltage remains regulated in such cases.

When VIN decreases to typically 15% above VOUT, the TPS82150 can't enter Power Save Mode, regardless of the load current. The device maintains output regulation in PWM mode.
