open-in-new Find other Buck controllers (external switch)


The TPS53679 is a fully VR13 SVID compliant step-down controller with dual channels, built-in non-volatile memory (NVM), and PMBus™ interface, and is fully compatible with TI NexFET ™power stage. Advanced control features such as D-CAP+™ architecture with undershoot reduction (USR) provide fast transient response, low output capacitance, and good current sharing. The device also provides novel phase interleaving strategy and dynamic phase shedding for efficiency improvement at different loads. Adjustable control of VCORE slew rate and voltage positioning round out the Intel® VR13™ features. In addition, the device supports the PMBus communication interface for reporting the telemetry of voltage, current, power, temperature, and fault conditions to the systems. All programmable parameters can be configured by the PMBus interface and can be stored in NVM as the new default values to minimize the external component count.

The TPS53679 device if offered in a thermally enhanced -pin QFN packaged and is rated to operate from –40°C to 125°C.

Software development

Digital Power Software
FUSION_DIGITAL_POWER_DESIGNER Fusion Digital Power™  is the Graphical User Interface (GUI) used to configure and monitor select Texas Instruments digital power controllers and sequencer/health monitors. The application uses the PMBus protocol to communicate with the device over serial bus by way of a TI USB adapter.

Some of the tasks you can perform with the GUI include:

  • Turn on or off the power supply output, either through the hardware control line or the PMBus OPERATION command
  • Monitor real-time data. Items such as input voltage, output voltage, output current, temperature, and warnings/faults are continuously (...)
