TPS53679: Gang writing possibility

Part Number: TPS53679

Hi, teem

Customer wants to shorten initial set up data writing time to TPS53679 chip.

At present, it takes about one minute using the fusion digital power designer.

Are there any methods to decease this writing time, like gang writing?

  • Hi Yoshwa,

    Can you tell me a little more on how the customer is currently programming the TPS53679 please? I'm working with the GUI team to assist but we can't give a definitive answer based on your post.

    1. Are they using the standard designer GUI on either a TI EVM or their own board?
    2. Are they trying to program multiple parts or several controllers?
    3. Also, is the customer using a software script or XML project each time? 

    Depending on the circumstances using the Manufacturing GUI or command line may be faster.

    Thanks,

    Carmen

    Hi Carmen,

    Customer is using the USB-TO-GPIO of TI and writing on a customer own board.

    He is now writing through a single controller, no multiple.

    He is using a XML project, every time.

    Best regards,

    Hi Yoshwa,

    Thanks for letting me know. Is for a production environment or just general validation of the controller? I ask because it may be appropriate for a script to configure the part if it's for high volume.

    Thanks,

    Carmen

    Hi Carmen,

     

    Thanks for your fine support.

    I got following customer working environment.

     

    Their boards are on the production level.

    Only one controller is integrated on their mother board.

    So, they unavoidably replace their boards and set data using the USB-TO-GPIO every time.

    Hello Yoshifusa,

    If this is for production work where the customer is looking to configure the controller with the settings they've decided on earlier I would recommend switching to the Fusion Manufacturing tool.

    www.ti.com/.../FUSION_MFR_GUI

    There are help guides available once it's installed to guide you through set up and once it's implemented should definitely speed up the programming during production.

    Let me know if you need any help!

    Thanks,

    Carmen
