TPS65917-Q1: Power Estimation Tool Locked Cell

Part Number: TPS65917-Q1

Hi Team,

My Customer is currently using the "TPS65917 Power Estimation Tool" and wanted to vary the "L DCR" value (column F), unfortunately this is a locked column. Is there a possibility that my customer can change this?



  • Hi Renan,

    The "L DCR" column is informative only, it is not used in any calculations. The tool is filling in the Pdis and Efficiency data columns from the validation data, interpolating where necessary if the request point is between validation points (for example 0.92 V is between 0.7V and 1.05V test points). 

    You should be able to estimate the difference between the tool results and the expected results with different inductors by subtracting out the expected Pdis.
