Texas Instruments (TI) has introduced a family of four high-efficiency, low-quiescent-current (IQ) buck-boost converters that feature tiny packaging with minimal external components for a small solution size. The integrated TPS63802, TPS63805, TPS63806 and TPS63810 DC/DC noninverting buck-boost converters offer wide input and output voltage ranges that scale to support multiple battery-driven applications.
These devices aim to help engineers simplify and accelerate their designs.
Each of the devices in the family automatically selects buck, buck-boost or boost mode according to the operating conditions. Their complete solution size of 19.5 to 25mm2 is a result of compact packaging, an advanced control topology requiring few external multilayer ceramic capacitors, and tiny 0.47-µH inductors. The devices offer a wide 1.3 to 5.5V input and 1.8 to 5.2V output voltage range, which helps engineers speed their designs and encourages reuse across multiple applications.
These DC/DC converters are the latest addition to TI’s industry-leading low-IQ power-management portfolio, providing low 11- to 15-µA IQ for excellent light-load efficiency while minimizing power losses and extending run times in battery-driven applications such as portable electronic point-of-sale terminals, grid infrastructure metering devices, wireless sensors and handheld electronic devices.
The new buck-boost converters are available with package type and pricing as listed in the table below.
The TPS63805 and TPS63806 devices are available in production quantities through the TI store and authorised distributors. Pre-production samples are also available for the TPS63802 and TPS63810 devices.
