The TPS53667EVM-769 evaluation module allows users to assess the operating characteristics of the TPS53667 controller with the CSD95490 smart power stages in a low voltage, high current, step-down point of load (POL) application with the configuration, control and monitoring functionality of the included PMBus interface.
The EVM is configured as a 6-phase 1-V, 180-A output converter operating from a nominal 12-V supply, using a pin-strapped configuration to demostrate its use for high current ASIC or FPGA power. If fewer phases are required for a lower current application, the controller's configuration can be altered to reduce the active number of phases via the PMBus interface and the Fusion Digital Power™ designer software.
