Industrial DC/DC converters require more functionality @EETimesEurope read more

When using a step down DC/DC converter in industrial applications the ideal device can be used across several platforms and applications. This is especially true for a multipurpose 2 A buck converter, like the new TPS62097. There are a number of 2 A buck converters on the market, but the choice becomes very limited when the overall solution needs to be small. One of the main obstacles is the limited pin count with small packages facilitating all device features. This article will outline key application features making the TPS62097 ideal for use across several application platforms. We will discuss package construction of the new HotRod (QFN), highlighting its advantages, as well as taking a look at general reflow soldering guidelines for this new package. HotRod (QFN, DFN) packages allow higher converter efficiency QFN (Quad Flat No-lead) and DFN (Dual Flat No-lead) packa...
