The TPS6291x devices are a family of high efficiency low noise and low ripple synchronous buck converters. The devices are ideal for noise sensitive applications that would normally use an LDO for post regulation such as high speed ADCs, Clock and Jitter Cleaner, Serializer, De-serializer, and Radar applications.
The device operates at a fixed switching frequency of 2.2 MHz or 1 MHz, and can be synchronized to an external clock.
To further reduce the output voltage ripple, the device integrates loop compensation to operate with an optional second-stage ferrite bead L-C filter. This allows an output voltage ripple below 10 µVRMS.
Low-frequency noise levels, similar to a low-noise LDO, are achieved by filtering the internal voltage reference with a capacitor connected to the NR/SS pin.
The optional spread spectrum modulation scheme spreads the DC/DC switching frequency over a wider span, which lowers the mixing spurs.
