The device has the SAME FUNCTIONALITY as the compared device, but is not pin-for-pin equivalent and may not be parametrically equivalent.
TI does not recommend using this part in a new design. This product continues to be in production to support existing customers.
The TPS65232 provides one PWM buck controller, two adjustable, synchronous buck regulators. The SMPS have integrated switching FETs for optimized power efficiency and reduced external component count. All power blocks have thermal and over current/short circuit protection. The TPS65232 startup timing can be controlled through buck enable pins. The buck controller and buck converters have internal pole/zero pairs to help stabilizing the system with minimum external components.
