Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TPS62162
I am trying to use a TPS62163 Input voltage 12V output 5.0V 200mA, I found the circuit works OK with an input voltage of around 7 Volts, if I increase to 12v the chip fails (overheat, and smoke come out).
The inductor 3.3uHy, input and output capacitors 10uF.
I had similar problem with the 3.3V TPS62162, my solution at the time was to replace with a part of a different manufacturer, but I like the simplicity of the circuit of this chip.
I will appreciate any help or ideas why is happening.
