Power module

We have the industry's largest and most diverse portfolio of DC/DC buck modules. With integrated FETs and inductor, power modules simplify your power supply design process and get you to market faster.

Converter

Our comprehensive portfolio of DC/DC buck converters covers an input voltage range of 1.3 V to 100 V and output current up to 40 A. With integrated FETs and external inductor, converters provide a good balance of integration and flexibility.

Controller

Our family of DC/DC buck controllers extends to 100 V maximum input voltage and 420 A maximum output current. Controllers with external FETs and inductor provide the most design flexibility for high-power applications.

Power trends

Power management is at the center of enabling the continued integration of electronics in our lives. For decades, TI has been at the forefront of developing new process, packaging and circuit-design technologies to deliver the best power devices for your design. Check out our featured DC/DC buck regulators below, designed to help you address EMI, power density, and quiescent current challenges.

Step-down (buck) regulators for low EMI

Mitigating buck regulator EMI can be a major challenge for many power-supply designers. Devices with built-in EMI-reduction technologies save design time while helping you comply with difficult standards such as CISPR 25 Class-5. Check out our featured step-down switching regulators for EMI performance. For more help with EMI mitigation, explore our EMI training hub.

TPS62810-Q1

Automotive 2.75-V to 6-V, 4-A step-down converter in a 2-mm x 3-mm QFN package with wettable flanks

LM5143-Q1

3.5-V to 65-V dual DC/DC synchronous buck controller with spread spectrum and low IQ

LMQ61460-Q1

36-V, 6-A synchronous step-down converter with integrated bypass capacitors and pseudo-random spread spectrum

Step-down (buck) regulators for power density

More power, less board space. This is the trend in applications across all markets as well as the TI step-down switching regulator portfolio. Highlighted by SWIFT™ voltage regulators, these are highly integrated, featuring high performance and high output-current capability in compact, thermally-enhanced packaging.

High-density regulators are a great choice for powering high-current digital loads like FPGAs and processors. Use our processor-attach tool to find the best products to complement your FPGA or processor.

Step-down (buck) regulators for low quiescent current (IQ)

DC/DC buck switching regulators with ultra-low standby quiescent current increase light-load efficiency and extend battery life in portable and battery-operated applications. Find some of the lowest IQ devices in our buck regulator portfolio below.

TPS62840

1.8-V to 6.5-VIN, high-efficiency 750-mA step-down converter with the world's lowest quiescent current at 60 nA

LMR36506

3-V to 65-V, 0.6-A ultra-small synchronous buck converter with 4-μA IQ

LM5143-Q1

3.5-V to 65-V low IQ, dual, 2-phase synchronous buck DC-DC controller with 15-µA quiescent current

Buck converters for low noise and precision

Typical switching regulators require a post-regulator LDO to power high-resolution ADCs and AFEs. But with the industry's best noise and ripple performance, TPS62912 and TPS62913 allow you to remove that low-noise LDO in most applications, saving PCB area and overall cost while improving system efficiency. 

TPS62912

17-VIN, 2-A low-noise and low-ripple buck converter with integrated ferrite bead filter compensation

TPS62913

17-VIN, 3-A low-noise and low-ripple buck converter with integrated ferrite bead filter compensation
