Industrial 15V – 42V VIN Power Reference Design With Dual VOUT of 1.2V@10A and 1V@10A


Design files


The PMP15018 reference design incorporates the TPS54541 42V 5A DC/DC converter and two TPS56C215 17V, 12A DC/DC converters.  The solution operates from 15V to 42V input and generates 1.0V @10A and 1.2V@10A voltage rails.  The 1.0V and 1.2V converters operate at 1MHz and 400kHz respectively in order to highlight the size vs. performance advantages/disadvantage for low vs. high frequency operation.

  • Small solution footprint: 2.5in x 2.5in
  • Wide Vin: 15V to 42V
  • Dual Vout: 1.0V @ 10A and 1.2V @ 10A
  • Excelent load regulation < ±1%
