Texas Instruments Launches TPS543C20 SWIFT Converter

TI’s stackable 16-V input, 40-A SWIFT DC/DC buck converter features innovative control topology

Texas

Texas Instruments (TI) introduced the industry’s first 16-V input, 40-A synchronous DC/DC buck converter with an internally compensated advanced-current-mode (ACM) control topology supporting frequency synchronization.

TI’s TPS543C20 SWIFT converter provides enhanced efficiency by integrating its latest generation of low resistance high- and low-side MOSFETs into a thermally efficient small-footprint package. Designers can stack two converters side by side to drive loads up to 80 A for processors in space-constrained and power-dense applications in various markets, including wired and wireless communications, enterprise and cloud computing, and data storage systems.

The unique internally compensated ACM control topology with fast transient response maintains stability over a wide range of input and output voltages. What makes ACM different is that it is an emulated peak-current-mode control topology that internally generates a ramp with the ability to dynamically adjust for stability over a wide range of operating switching frequencies. This provides the best of both traditional fixed frequency for low noise operation and constant on-time (COT) control for fast transient without external compensation. Read the blog post, “Lightning-fast internally compensated ACM topology – what can it do for you?” and the “Control-Mode Quick Reference Guide” to understand the difference between TI’s various control modes.

 TPS543C20 key features and benefits

  • Provides greater than 90 percent efficiency at a 40-A peak-load current.
  • Maintains 0.5 percent reference-voltage accuracy over temperature and full differential remote-voltage sensing to meet the voltage-accuracy requirements of deep submicron processors.
  • Provides up to 80 A at point-of-load when stacking two converters.
  • Offers very high power density and the Power Stack quad flat no-leads (QFN) package enables easy heat sinking from the single ground pad.

TPS543C20 support and tools

  • Download the 1V, 20A Highly Integrated Synchronous Buck Converter Reference Design and speed up your design process with TI’s WEBENCH online design tools.
  • Order the 40-A TPS543C20EVM-799 or stacked 80-A TPS543C20EVM-869 evaluation modules.

For similar applications at 25 A, TI offers the TPS543B20 in a pin-to-pin-compatible Power Stack QFN package. For those applications requiring PMBus to support telemetry, TI offers the stackable 35-A TPS546C23 SWIFT synchronous buck converter.

I have a passion to learn new things. There are always possibilities for learning. Everything needs to be analyzed critically, and I believe to do it by creating a solid bond between a reader and writer. Whether, it is an article or news story, it should not be distorted and must be reported in a balanced way. I believe to stick to the ethics of journalism.
