TI introduces the industry's first DC/DC buck-boost converter to extend battery life by 50% and offer lowest IQ
Texas Instruments introduced the industry’s first DC/DC buck-boost converter to combine programmable input current limit and integrated dynamic voltage scaling to extend battery life by at least 50%. The TPS63900 maintains the industry’s lowest quiescent current (IQ), 75 nA, with 92% efficiency at 10 µA and delivers up to three times more output current than competing devices to help engineers extend the life span of battery-powered industrial and personal electronics applications.
It is a common challenge for engineers to design for low IQ while providing enough output current to send signals between connected smart grid applications and a network via commonly used radio-frequency standards, such as narrowband Internet of Things (IoT), Bluetooth® Low Energy, and long-range and wireless M-Bus. The TPS63900 helps engineers conserve energy in wirelessly connected applications that run on batteries.
