TPS7A78: Negative Voltage

Part Number: TPS7A78

I have two questions:

  1. When is the TPS7A78 scheduled for full production? I have a new circuit design here, and I would like to use it. But my customer wants to be sure that the TPS7A78 will be available within the next few months.
  2. Is it possible to generate a voltage negative to neutral in HB configuration?

  • Hi,

    The TPS7A78 is on track to release to full production by the end of the month. 

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to create a voltage negative to neutral with the TPS7A78. In the Half-Bridge configuration, either the Line or Neutral is shorted to the IC ground. The output of the TPS7A78 is a positive LDO which can only source current into the load. 

    I hope this answers your question.

    Thank you,
