OK, there is no doubt the new iPads have cool features and offer tremendous usability. Next you’ll see handheld electronics like DLP® pico projectors, bar code readers and digital cameras with amazing features and wireless connectivity with even higher data rates. But adding all these new features requires extra power to operate, which takes a potential toll on battery life and system reliability. How can these devices possibly deliver higher output current with increased system reliability in smaller form factors – and still maintain acceptable battery life?
Higher current buck-boost converters like TI’s new TPS63020 help manage the power to these portable devices in the most energy-efficient, most effective way possible – in the smallest amount of board space. TI has a broad portfolio of step-down, boost and buck-boost DC/DC converters to meet any power requirement in a battery-powered design. This new 4-A switch buck-boost offers up to 96 percent efficiency in a complete DC/DC converter solution size of 100 mm2. Check out the TPS63020 video.
