Part Number: TPS61088

 Hello guys,

 One of my customers faced to a similar problem to the following thread.

https://e2e.ti.com/support/power-management/f/196/t/588086?TPS61088-IC-is-damaged-when-loaded-with-PTN78000A

 Could you please tell me what the cause of TPS61088 was?

 Your reply would be much appreciated.

 Best regards,

 Kazuya.

  • Dear Sir,

     Hello Helen,

     Thank you very much for your reply.

     Vin=8V, Vout=12V, Io=500mA.

     I don't have the customer's schematic because they can't disclose the schematic due to a contract with their end customer.

     But they said the schematic is almost same as the figure 12 in TPS61088 datasheet except R1, R2 and C4. 

     Their C4 (output capacitor) is 470uF.

     Could you please tell me the cause of the tread? It was layout issue?

     Thank you and best regards,

     Kazuya.

    Hi  Kazuya-San,

    Yes, the failure is caused by the poor layout. Their traces are  long and thin.

    In your  Vin=8V, Vout=12V, Io=500mA application, you actually doesn't need to use 470uF cap, only 2pcs 22uF ceramic cap is OK for the usege.

    Best Regards,
