TPS54140 Switching Frequency always 500kHz
I use the Switcher PRO Software to calculate the TPS54140. My inputs are VIN = 12V, VOUT = 3.3V and IOUT = 1A.
If i look at the analysis window the switching frequency always is at 500kHz. But when I look into the datasheet I think I could use 2MHz to get smaller inductors and capacitors. I also tried to change the frequency manually, but found no way to do this. Is there maybe a bug in the software? Or how can I change the frequency?
I'm using SwitcherPro Desktop V188.8.131.52
This is not a bug in SwitcherPro. It is designed to use the default switching frequency when user creates a design using simple inputs or partnumber. To specify switching frequency (for the parts which support variable frequency), please use 'Advanced Inputs' tab of 'Create New Design' screeen. Please see below.
