I am designing a TPS63060-based constant current circuit to try and achieve a very low spike on startup and a very low ripple current with > 1A output. I would like to try and experiment with breadboards rather than sending off a new pcb design for each new schematic as testing takes place. Is there an adaptor for the SON10 PowerPad chip available that would easily allow me to make a breadboard circuit using this chip?
Is this even doable or would the wire lengths be too long and create inductance related or other problems?
I can find smt/Smd adaptors for most of he other chips in my design, such as capacitors, resistors, MOSFETs and op amps but nothing for the SON 10 design.
since EVM is available for this part, why don't you test it?
anyway, we manufacture semiconductors, we have no adaptors to provide, sorry...
Thank you Vincenzo. I have the EVM but it makes for an expensive adaptor. Also I need to look at it and see if I can decouple anything from the IC to incorporate my designs. Do you think using short (but relatively long compared to a pcb trace) wires to a breadboard will introduce problems?
I also didn't know if even though you don't make an adaptor, maybe you might know of someone like schmartboard or someone else who might make son10 to dip adaptors.
Thank you for the help!
I see, well you can try and if doesn't work as expected then you can claim about the layout :D
pay attention to the transition of the signal and the thickness of the cables/connections (in according to the expected currents)
for sure the biggest problem is that you won't have a real GND, since will be routed as a net: this leads in worst cases to damages for the various parts (V over absolute max); in the best case the "missing" GND leads to a poor line/load regulation
anyway adaptors exist and the cheapest ones I could find are
