This evaluation module is designed to demonstrate the ease-of-use and small printed-circuit board (PCB) area possible when designing with the TPSM84A21 power module. Monitoring test points are provided to allow measurement of efficiency, power dissipation, input ripple, output ripple, line and load regulation, and transient response. Additionally, control test points are provided for use of the power good, inhibit control, and undervoltage lockout features of the device. The EVM uses a recommended PCB layout that maximizes thermal performance and minimizes output ripple and noise.


About SWIFT™ power modules

Highly integrated SWIFT™ power modules eliminate input and output capacitors to provide best transient performance for space-constrained applications


About The Synchronous Buck Power Module TPSM84A22

The TPSM84A22 is an easy-to-use integrated power solution that combines the TPS54A20, a 10-A, DC/DC, synchronous, step-down converter with power MOSFETs, shielded inductors, input and output capacitors, and passives into a low profile package. This total power solution requires only one voltage-setting resistor, and eliminates the loop compensation and magnetics part selection from the design process.



The completely integrated power solution allows standard applications to operate with no additional input or output capacitors and only a single external resistor to set the output voltage. High frequency operation, ultra-fast transient response, and accurate voltage regulation allow the TPSM84A22 to meet tight regulation specs.




The 9 x 15 mm PCB footprint is easy to solder onto a printed circuit board and allows a compact, low-profile point-of-load design.
