Integrated Power Solutions
Chris Cooper is the technology director for power at Avnet Electronics Marketing and has extensive and in-depth knowledge of power-related products and design tools available from strategic supplier partners such as TI. His technical expertise extends to circuit board design with an emphasis on power design. Chris has presented at and participated in several power-related conferences and has also had multiple technical articles published in a variety of publications.
Texas Instruments (TI) introduces new Integrated Power Solutions for DC/DC conversion. These products - the TPS8267xstep-down regulator and TPS84620 highly integrated point-of-load solution - feature an integrated inductor and passive components aimed at speeding development time and simplifying power design.
The TPS84620 is a highly integrated point-of-load solution with high density and efficiency and 30% better thermal dissipation compared to competitor solutions. The QFN package combines the inductor and passives onto one device and requires only three external components, making design layout extremely simple. Target applications include broadband and communications infrastructure, along with automated test and medical equipment.
The TPS8267x step-down regulator combines all external components on TI's new MicroSiP™ package - easing design for portable electronics. Plus a unique PWM frequency dithering feature reduces noise and improves performance. The TPS8267x is ideal for use in low-power performance applications, such as cell phones, smart phones, portable audio/video, digital TV, WLAN, GPS, Bluetooth® and portable medical devices.
