The TPS703xx family of devices is designed to provide a complete power management solution for TI DSP, processor power, ASIC, FPGA, and digital applications where dual output voltage regulators are required. Easy programmability of the sequencing function makes this family ideal for any TI DSP application with power sequencing requirements. Differentiated features, such as accuracy, fast transient response, SVS supervisory circuit (power-on reset), manual reset inputs, and enable function, provide a complete system solution.
The TPS703xx family of voltage regulators offers very low dropout voltage and dual outputs with power up sequence control, designed primarily for DSP applications. These devices have low noise output performance without using any added filter bypass capacitors, and are designed to have a fast transient response and be stable with 47 µF low ESR capacitors.
These devices have fixed 3.3 V/2.5 V, 3.3 V/1.8 V, 3.3 V/1.5 V, 3.3 V/1.2 V, and adjustable voltage options. Regulator 1 can support up to 1 A, and regulator 2 can support up to 2 A. Separate voltage inputs allow the designer to configure the source power.
Because the PMOS pass element behaves as a low-value resistor, the dropout voltage is very low (typically 160mV on regulator 1) and is directly proportional to the output current. Additionally, since the PMOS pass element is a voltage-driven device, the quiescent current is very low and independent of output loading (maximum of 250 µA over the full range of output current). This LDO family also features a sleep mode; applying a high signal to EN\ (enable) shuts down both regulators, reducing the input current to 1 µA at TJ = +25°C.
The device is enabled when the EN\ pin is connected to a low-level input voltage. The output voltages of the two regulators are sensed at the VSENSE1 and VSENSE2 pins respectively.
The input signal at the SEQ pin controls the power-up sequence of the two regulators. When the device is enabled and the SEQ terminal is pulled high or left open, VOUT2 turns on first and VOUT1 remains off until VOUT2 reaches approximately 83% of its regulated output voltage. At that time VOUT1 is turned on. If VOUT2 is pulled below 83% (that is, in an overload condition) of its regulated voltage, VOUT1 is turned off. Pulling the SEQ terminal low reverses the power-up order and VOUT1 is turned on first. The SEQ pin is connected to an internal pull-up current source.
For each regulator, there is an internal discharge transistor to discharge the output capacitor when the regulator is turned off (disabled).
