Description

The TPS56623x are simple, easy to use, high-efficiency, 6-A synchronous buck converters in a QFN 9-pin 1.5-mm x 2.0-mm package.

The devices operate with wider supply input voltage ranging from 3 V to 18 V. The D-CAP3™ control mode was adopted to provide a fast transient response, good line and load regulation, no requirement for external compensation, and to support low-ESR output capacitors.

The TPS566231 and TPS566231P operate in Eco-Mode™ for high efficiency during light load operation, and are designed with ULQ™ (Ultra Low Quiescent) feature, achieving 50-uA quiescent current to enable long battery life in low-power applications. The TPS566238 and TPS566238P operate in continuous current mode, which maintains lower output ripple during all load conditions.

The TPS566231 and TPS566238 soft-start time can be adjusted through the SS pin. The TPS566231P and TPS566238P indicate power good through the PG pin.

The TPS56623x can support up to 98% duty cycle operation, and integrate complete protection through OVP, OCP, UVLO, OTP, and UVP with hiccup. They are each available in a 9-pin 1.5-mm x 2.0-mm HotRod™ package and the junction temperature is specified from -40°C to 125°C.
