Texas Instruments  TPS55162QPWPRQ1

The TPS5516x-Q1 family of devices is a high-voltage synchronous buck-boost DC-DCconverter. The device provides a stable power-supply output from a wide varying input-power supplysuch as an automotive car battery. The buck-boost overlap control ensures automatic transitionbetween step-down and step-up mode with optimal efficiency. The TPS55165-Q1 output voltage can beset to a fixed level of 5 V or 12 V. The TPS55160-Q1 and TPS55162-Q1 devices have a configurableoutput voltage ranging from 5.7 V to 9 V that is set by an external resistive divider.

Output currents can be as high as 1 A for a normal car battery voltage, and can bemaintained at 0.4 A for lower input voltages, such as those for common battery-cranking profiles.The buck-boost converter is based on a fixed-frequency, pulse-width-modulation (PWM) controlcircuit using synchronous rectification to obtain maximum efficiency. The switching frequency isset to 2 MHz (typical) which allows for the usage of a small inductor that uses less boardspace.

A selectable spread-spectrum option (TPS55160-Q1 and TPS55165-Q1) helps reduce radiatedelectromagnetic interference (EMI). Internal loop compensation eliminates the need for externalcompensation components. In low-power mode (TPS55160-Q1 and TPS55165-Q1), the device achieves aquiescent current of less than 15 µA which allows an automotive electronic control unit (ECU) tostay in standby mode (for example, listen-to-CAN mode) while achieving OEM quiescent-currentrequirements. The low-power mode can be disabled which forces the converter to operate in fullcontinuous mode at a fixed switching frequency of 2 MHz (typical) for the entire load-currentrange. The maximum average current in the inductor is limited to a typical value of 2 A.

The converter can be disabled to minimize battery drain. Furthermore, the device offers apower-good (PG) pin to indicate when the output rail is less than the specified tolerance. Thedevice also has a power-latch function to allow an external microcontroller unit (MCU) to keep theoutput voltage available for as long as needed.

The device is available in a 20-pin HTSSOP PowerPAD package.
