TI Unveils Integrated Power Management IC for DaVinci(TM) Technology-Based Portable Electronics

5 mm x 5 mm, 6-Channel PMIC Combines High-Efficiency and Digital Control to Extend Battery Life

DALLAS (November 6, 2006) - Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE: TXN) introduced today the first power management integrated circuit (PMIC) fully optimized to support all power system requirements of a multimedia device based on DaVinci(TM) technology. Simplifying power design in portable media players, digital still cameras and other lithium-battery powered electronics, the flexible device provides dynamic voltage scaling and up to 95 percent power conversion efficiency. See: www.ti.com/sc06194.

TI's TPS65023 converter manages the power in a TMS320DM644x digital signal processor (DSP) based on DaVinci technology with high-performance digital control and maximum efficiency across the widest possible range of load currents up to 1.5 A. The device, which comes in a small 5 mm x 5 mm QFN package, integrates three step-down converters to support the system's core voltage, peripheral, I/O and memory voltage. The TPS65023 uses an I2C communications interface to implement a dynamic voltage scaling technique that digitally adjusts the core output voltage level between 0.8 V and 1.6 V, allowing the system to conserve power. The interface is compatible with fast/standard and high-speed mode I2C specification, which allows data transfer up to 400 kHz. All three of TPS65023's step-down converters allows the device to operate in a power-save mode at light-load currents, and can be placed in a shutdown mode when power consumption is reduced to less than 1 µA.

The TPS65023 also integrates two general-purpose, 200-mA linear dropout (LDO) voltage regulators that are enabled with an external input pin. Each LDO operates with an input voltage range between 2.5 V and 6.5 V, which allows each to be supplied from one of the integrated step-down converters or directly from the battery.

Integrated Features of the TPS65023:

· 1.5-A, 90-percent efficient step-down converter for processor core

· 1.2-A, 95-percent efficient step-down converter for system voltage

· 1.0-A, 92-percent efficient step-down converter for memory voltage

· 30-mA LDO/switch for real time clock

· Two 200-mA general-purpose LDOs

· Dynamic voltage management for DaVinci processor core

· 85-µA typical quiescent current

· I2C compatible interface with data transfer up to 400 kHz

· Low ripple pulse frequency modulation (PFM) mode

· Thermal shutdown protection
