Texas Instruments Debuts LM5122Q, TPS43060, TPS43061 Boost Controllers

Texas Instruments (TI) LM5122Q, TPS43060 and TPS43061 boost controllers

Texas Instruments announced their LM5122Q, TPS43060 and TPS43061 boost controllers. The LM5122Q is a multi-phase boost controller with the industry’s widest input and output voltage range. The TPS43060 and TPS43061 are low quiescent-current boost controllers with 1-MHz operation and a small 16-pin QFN package (3mm by 3mm by .75mm). The TPS43060 and TPS43061 are available in volume now. The TPS43060 and TPS43061 are priced at $1.40 in 1,000-unit quantities. The LM5122Q will be available in the second quarter in a 20-pin TSSOP package (6.5mm by 4.4mm by .9mm) The LM5122Q is priced at $2.10 in 1,000-unit quantities.

The TI LM5122Q is an AEC-Q100-qualified synchronous boost controller with a 3-V to 65-V input and up to 100-V output voltage range. The controller can be configured easily for interleaved multi-phase operation, which is required for high power applications like start-stop voltage stabilizers and high power audio amplifiers. A powerful 3-A gate drive circuit supports voltages up to 16-V, enabling flexibility to tune the step-up DC/DC for efficiency and size.

The TI TPS43060 and TPS43061 are low quiescent-current synchronous boost controllers with an input voltage range from 4.5 V to 38 V and an output voltage range of up to 60 V. The TPS43060 provides a 7.5-V gate drive, which drives a broad range of low-cost MOSFETs. The TPS43061 provides a 5.5-V gate drive, optimized for low Qg MOSFETs, such as TI’s CSD86330Q3D synchronous buck NexFET Power Block, which saves up to 50mm2 of board area.
