Features for the TPS62130A DCS-Control™ topology Input voltage range: 3 V to 17 V Up to 3-A output current Adjustable output voltage from 0.9 V to 6 V Pin-selectable output voltage (nominal, + 5%) Programmable soft start and tracking Seamless power save mode transition Quiescent current of 17 µA (typical) Selectable operating frequency Power-good output 100% duty cycle mode Short circuit protection Overtemperature protection Pin-to-pin compatible with the TPS62140 and TPS62150 Available in a 3-mm × 3-mm, QFN-16 package Use the TPS82130 for faster designs Description for the TPS62130A The TPS6213x family are easy-to-use synchronous step down DC-DC converters optimized for applications with high power density. A high switching frequency of typically 2.5 MHz allows the use of small inductors and provides fast transient response as well as high output voltage accuracy by use of the DCS-Control topology. With their wide operating input voltage range of 3 V to 17 V, the devices are ideally suited for systems powered from either a Li-Ion or other batteries as well as from 12-V intermediate power rails. They support up to 3-A continuous output current at output voltages between 0.9 V and 6 V (with 100% duty cycle mode). The output voltage start-up ramp is controlled by the soft-start pin, which allows operation as either a stand-alone power supply or in tracking configurations. Power sequencing is also possible by configuring the Enable and open-drain Power Good pins. In power save mode, the devices draw quiescent current of approximately 17 µA from VIN. Power save mode, entered automatically and seamlessly if the load is small, maintains high efficiency over the entire load range. In shutdown mode, the device is turned off and shutdown current consumption is less than 2 µA. The device, available in adjustable and fixed output voltage versions, is packaged in a 16-pin VQFN package measuring 3 mm × 3 mm (RGT).
