Texas Instruments' TPS82130 is a 17 V input 3 A step-down converter MicroSiP power module optimized for small solution size and high efficiency. The module integrates a synchronous step-down converter and an inductor to simplify design, reduce external components, and save PCB area. The low profile and compact solution is suitable for automated assembly by standard surface-mount equipment.
To maximize efficiency, the converter operates in PWM mode with a nominal switching frequency of 2 MHz and automatically enters power save mode operation at light load currents. In power save mode, the device operates with typically 20 µA quiescent current. Using the DCS-Control™ topology, the device achieves excellent load transient performance and accurate output voltage regulation.
