1-A power converter
23 April 2012
New QuietSupply step-down supply reduces switching noise by 99%.
Today’s noise-sensitive medical, industrial and telecom designs need smooth, quiet power sources to operate at peak performance. Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) has introduced a new class of voltage regulators designed to deliver the industry’s lowest-noise 1-A switching power supply without sacrificing efficiency and power performance.
The TPS54120, the first in TI’s family of QuietSupply regulators, reduces switching noise by up to 99%, compared to other power conversion devices, and helps maximise the performance of precision data converters and amplifiers and sensitive clock distribution circuits used in applications, such as telecommunications, test equipment, and high-end audio and video equipment.
In addition to the TPS54120, TI also offers a large selection of low dropout linear regulators (LDOs) with low noise, wide input voltage and high PSRR, such as the TPS7A8101, TPS7A3001, TPS7A4901 and the ultra-low noise LP5900 and LP8900 regulators. Complete reference designs and evaluation modules are also available to speed time to market.
The TPS54120 is available in volume now from TI and its authorised distributors in a thermally enhanced 4mm x 4mm, 20-pin QFN or TSSOP package. The easy-to-use TPS54120EVM-103 contains all of the external components required for a low noise, 1-A solution with internal thermal and current limit shutdowns, power good output monitor, tracking and enabling/disabling circuitry.
