Description for the TPS60121

The TPS6012x step-up, regulated charge pumps generate a 3.3-V or 3-V ±4% output voltage from a 1.8-V to 3.6-V input voltage (two alkaline, NiCd, or NiMH batteries). They can deliver an output current of at least 200 mA (100 mA for the TPS60122 and TPS60123), all from a 2-V input. Four external capacitors are needed to build a complete high efficiency dc/dc charge pump converter. To achieve the high efficiency over a wide input voltage range, the charge pump automatically selects between a 1.5x or doubler conversion mode. From a 2-V input, all ICs can start with full load current.

The devices feature the power-saving pulse-skip mode to extend battery life at light loads. TPS60120, TPS60122, and TPS60124 include a low battery comparator. TPS60121, TPS60123, and TPS60125 feature a power-good output. The logic shutdown function reduces the supply current to a maximum of 1uA and disconnects the load from the input. Special current-control circuitry prevents excessive current from being drawn from the battery during start-up. This dc/dc converter requires no inductors, therefore EMI is of low concern. It is available in the small, thermally enhanced 20-pin PowerPADTM package (PWP).

Carrier options

You can choose different carrier options based on the quantity of parts, including full reel, custom reel, cut tape, tube or tray.

custom reel is a continuous length of cut tape from one reel to maintain lot- and date-code traceability, built to the exact quantity requested. Following industry standards, a brass shim connects an 18-inch leader and trailer on both sides of the cut tape for direct feeding into automated assembly machines. TI includes a reeling fee for custom reel orders.

Cut tape is a length of tape cut from a reel. TI may fulfill orders using multiple strips of cut tapes or boxes to satisfy the quantity requested.

TI often ships  tube or tray  devices inside a box or in the tube or tray, depending on inventory availability. We pack all tapes, tubes or sample boxes according to internal electrostatic discharge and moisture-sensitivity-level protection requirements.
