    Thank you to Element14 and Texas Instruments for the opportunity to partake in this RoadTest.  I can't wait to use and now get more of the boards from TI in the near future.  This is how a product should be made!

     

     

    Description

    The TPSM84A21 evaluation board is configured to evaluate the operation of the TPSM84A21 power module for increased current up to 10 A. The input voltage range is 8 V to 14 V. The output voltage can be selected from 5 popular voltages (0.6 V, 0.8 V, 1.0 V, 1.1 V, & 1.2 V) using a single jumper. The evaluation board has several test points and jumpers to easily evaluate the TPSM84A21 operation.

        

    Features

    • 8V to 14V Input Voltage Range
    • 0.6V, 0.8V, 1.0V, 1.1, & 1.2V Output Voltage Jumper
    • No external input or output capacitors required
    • Up to 10A of Output Current

     

    The only flaw I seen was the price point but after you factor in everything from the quality of the craftsmanship to its features compared to other devices that are similar this is well worth its value.

     

    So as always I have done a video and a small test as well to check the board out more.  I fully understand I have a lot to learn when it comes to oscilloscope and will be getting a new one here after my vacation and then start on learning more with the oscilloscope as I know its a wonderful tool  and would love to be able to take full advantage of it in the future.  Being self taught does have its limitations I guess as there is always something new to learn and experience.

     

    Once again a beautiful unboxing I greatly enjoyed it this time.   I don't have the beautiful testing as fmilburn  TI SWIFT™ Power Module EVM - Review   which I am going to say did a wonderful review on the board as well.   Great job Frank.
