The TPS62125 is a high efficiency synchronous step down converter optimized for low and ultra low power applications providing up to 300mA output current. The wide input voltage range of 3V to 17V supports four cell alkaline and 1 to 4 cell Li-Ion batteries in series configuration as well as 9V to 15V powered applications. The device includes a precise low power enable comparator which can be used as an input supply voltage supervisor (SVS) to address system specific power up and down requirements. The enable comparator consumes only 6µA quiescent current and features an accurate threshold of 1.2V typical as well as an adjustable hysteresis. With this feature, the converter can generate a power supply rail by extracting energy from a storage capacitor fed from high impedance sources such as solar panels or current loops. With its DCS - Control TM scheme the converter provides power save mode operation to maintain highest efficiency over the entire load current range. At light loads the converter operates in PFM mode (pulse frequency modulation) and transitions seamlessly and automatically in PWM (pulse width modulation) mode at higher load currents. The DCS - ControlTM scheme is optimized for low output ripple voltage in PFM mode in order to reduce output noise to a minimum and features excellent AC load regulation. An open drain power good output indicates once the output voltage is in regulation.
