TPS51116: PWM ON/OFF time now stable.

Part Number: TPS51116

Hi,

Have a  question regarding the designing of TPS51116 for 1.35V DDR3L application,

I copied the circuit from the datasheet and reconfigure the output for 1.35V/0.675V DDR3L application, noticed that the PWM ON/OFF time is not consistent.  What can I tweak to stabilize it.

Thanks,

SB

  • Hi SB, 

    TPS51116 is DCAP mode (constant on mode) controller. 

    The  PWM off time may vary. 

    Can you double check if PWM ON time is consistent?

    It will be good if you can provide PWM waveform. 

    Thanks

    Hi Qian,

    You are correct the OFF time varies, is this the D-CAP functioning as it is suppose to?

    I was expecting the ON/OFF time to be consistent like my other DC-DC circuits which uses separate controllers and power FETs.

    Thanks,

    SB

    Hi SB, 

    Looks like the part is in discontinuous mode because  at no load or light load condition. 

    It should be fine that off time varies. 

    Thanks
