Three new power management chips increase efficiency, voltage and output current in LED designs

Jan 22, 2009

DALLAS (January 23, 2009) - Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE:TXN) introduced today a high-power DC/DC boost LED driver (TPS61500) and high-voltage DC/DC boost converter (TPS61175), and expanded its step-down DC/DC converter series with TPS62110. These devices can support input voltages of up to 18 V and feature smaller voltage references for improved LED circuit design. These energy-efficient devices are cross-functional and work across a variety of LED applications, including signage, ambient light, office light, general illumination, military, medical and sensors. For product details, see www.ti.com/tps61500-pr, www.ti.com/tps61175-pr and www.ti.com/tps62110-pr.

  • Wide input supply range for 12-V or 15-V industrial power rails
  • Up to 1-A output current
  • HTSSOP package for best thermal behavior
  • Can be tailored to many applications
Key features of TPS61175
  • Wide input voltage range of 2.9 V to 18 V
  • 3.0-A/40-V integrated MOSFET
  • Wide switching frequency of 200 kHz to 2.2 MHz
Key benefits of TPS61175
  • Supports industrial applications with 12-V, 15-V bus
    systems or multi-cell applications
  • Builds small, internal compensation and enables flexible
    configurations for different application needs like boost,
    SEPIC and fly back converters
  • Offers choice to design for efficiency, smallest solution
    size or specific frequency range
Key features of TPS62110
  • Adjustable input voltage: 3.1 V to 17 V
  • Adjustable output voltage: 1.2 V to 15 V
  • Maximum output current 1.5 A
  • Maximum efficiency 95 percent
  • Quiescent current: 20 uA; 2 uA in shutdown
  • Switching frequency: 1 MHz
  • Power good and low-battery detectSoft start limits in-rush current
Key benefits of TPS62110
  • Closes the gap between low-power DC/DC converters for
    portable applications and higher power DC/DC SWIFTTM
    converters for industrial applications
  • As a LED driver new lighting achieves up to 90 percent in
    energy savings and the life time of the light increases up to 8 times
  • Can support fixed line rails like 12 V or 15 V, as well as a
    flexible number of battery cells
  • Small QFN package and small exterior inductor (6.8 uH) result
    in small overall solution size
