Texas Instruments introduces 60-V, 2.2 MHz DC/DC converter that reduces overall solution size and cost in automotive designs

Power management IC provides 65-microamps quiescent current

DALLAS May 5 -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) today introduced an automotive-qualified DC/DC step-down converter that offers a leading combination of high voltage up to 60 V, a switching frequency up to 2-MHz, and ultra-low quiescent current of 65-microamps in a small, monolithic package. The first in a family of automotive-qualified DC/DC controllers and converters, the TPS54362-Q1 converts an unregulated input voltage to a fixed lower output voltage to power automotive applications, such as infotainment, navigation systems, and power supply for electronic control units. In addition, the TPS54362-Q1 allows designers to reduce overall solution size, cost and design complexity when compared to discrete solutions.

Key features and benefits

  --  Support for transients up to 60 V and a wide input voltage range of
      3.6 V to 48 V protects the system.
  --  Up to 2-MHz frequency allows for smaller size external components,
      saving valuable board space and reducing overall solution cost.
  --  Ultra-low quiescent current of 65-microamps and standby mode ensures
      less battery drain from the vehicle battery, resulting in longer
      battery life.
  --  Integrated voltage supervisor to help monitor system performance.

  Availability and pricing

The TPS54362-Q1 is available now in a HTSSOP-20 package. The TPS54362-Q1 is priced at $2.75 in quantities of 1,000.
