DC-DC Synchronous Boost Converter – TPS61288

Overview

Texas Instruments TPS61288EVM-064 Synchronous Boost Converter is a high-power density, fully-integrated synchronous boost converter. The Texas Instruments TPS61288EVM-064 employs peak current control topology with SOO modulation to regulate the output voltage. The device operates in the pulse width modulation (PWM) mode in moderate to heavy load conditions. It automatically runs in the pulse frequency modulation (PFM) mode in light load and low duty cycle conditions. SOO modulation realizes accurate regulation over a wide load/VIN range while maintaining high efficiency and low output ripple. The switching frequency in the PWM mode is 500kHz.
