Highly integrated and efficient PMUs support advanced processor power requirements
The TPS65070 and TPS65073 devices result in a 50-percent smaller DC/DC implementation versus a discrete design by integrating three highly efficient, 2.25-MHz, 1.5-A DC/DC step-down converters that support core processor, memory and I/O voltages; two general purpose, 200-mA LDOs; white LED backlighting to support up to 5-inch LCD displays; I2C communications interface; 10-bit analog-to-digital converter; touch-screen interface and an integrated 1.5-A linear battery charger.
TI's new PMUs support the following processors with easy-to-use reference designs:
-- TPS65070: OMAP-L1x, TMS320C6742, TMS320C6746 and TMS320C6748 devices -- TPS65073 and TPS650731: OMAP35x processors
Availability, packaging and pricing
The TPS65070 and TPS65073 devices are available in volume production from TI and its authorized distributors. The devices come in a 6 mm x 6 mm x 0.4 mm, 48-pin, leadless, thermally enhanced QFN package with a suggested resale price of $3.95 in 1,000-unit quantities. Samples, evaluation modules and application notes are available.
