The TPS54623 in thermally enhanced VQFN package is a full featured 17-V, 6-A synchronous
step-down converter which is optimized for small designs through high efficiency and integrating
the high-side and low-side MOSFETs. Further space savings are achieved through current mode
control, which reduces component count, and by selecting a high switching frequency, reducing the
The output voltage start-up ramp is controlled by the SS/TR pin, which allows operation
as either a stand alone power supply or in tracking situations. Power sequencing is also possible
by correctly configuring the enable and the open drain power good pins.
Cycle-by-cycle current limiting on the high-side FET protects the device in overload
situations and is enhanced by a low-side sourcing current limit which prevents current runaway.
There is also a low-side sinking current limit that turns off the low-side MOSFET to prevent
excessive reverse current. Hiccup protection will be triggered if the overcurrent condition has
persisted for longer than the preset time. Thermal hiccup protection disables the device when the
die temperature exceeds the thermal shutdown temperature and enables the part again after the
built-in thermal shutdown hiccup time. The TPS54623 operates at continuous current mode (CCM) at
higher load conditions while skipping pulses to boost the efficiency at light loads.
