Texas Instruments introduces fully-integrated load switch with lowest ON resistance

Dec 15, 2009

DALLAS, Dec. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE: TXN) today introduced a fully-integrated load switch with typical ON resistance (rON) of 5.7-mOhms at 3.6-V, four times lower than the nearest competitor. TI's TPS22924C integrates at least four parts into one to simplify subsystem load management. The high level of integration in an ultra-small 1.4-mm x 0.9-mm chip scale package (CSP) addresses space-constrained, battery-powered applications such as portable industrial and medical equipment, media players, point-of-sale terminals, global positioning systems (GPSs), netbooks/notebooks, and Smartphones. Download the datasheet and order samples at www.ti.com/tps22924c-pr.

Key features and benefits of the TPS22924C

  • Ultra-low ON resistance of 5.7-mOhms at 3.6-V offers minimum dropout through the pass FET.
  • Input voltage range of 0.75 V to 3.6 V supports portable applications.
  • 2-A maximum continuous switch current covers a wide range of currents.
  • Low shutdown current of <2uA uses minimum power consumption in shutdown mode.
  • The TPS22924C is the newest member of TI's extensive load switch family. The new switch complements TI's portfolio targeting the portable equipment market, which includes battery chargers, DC/DC converters and OMAP™ processors.

Availability and pricing

The TPS22924C is available with samples by the end of December, and evaluation modules in 2Q10. The TPS22924C comes in an industry-leading, small-footprint CSP package (1.4 mm x 0.9 mm), and is priced at $0.55 in 1,000-unit quantities.
