TPS54618EVM-606: 1.8V @ 6A, 3 ~ 6V in


The TPS54618 dc/dc converter is designed to provide up to a 6-A output from an input voltage source of 2.95 V to 6 V. This evaluation module is designed to demonstrate the small printed-circuit-board (PCB) areas that may be achieved when designing with the TPS54618 regulator. The switching frequency is externally set at a nominal 1000 kHz.

The high-side and low-side MOSFETs are incorporated inside the TPS54618 package along with the gate-drive circuitry. The low drain-to-source on-resistance of the MOSFETs allows the TPS54618 to achieve high efficiencies and helps keep the junction temperature low at high output currents. The compensation components are external to the integrated circuit (IC), and an external divider allows for an adjustable output voltage. Additionally, the TPS54618 provides adjustable slow start and undervoltage lockout inputs. The absolute maximum input voltage is 7 V for the TPS54618EVM-606.
