Together, the products provide a complete multiphase Vcore system solution with superior transient performance, industry-benchmark telemetry accuracy and outstanding system reliability.

TPS53661, TPS53641 and TPS53631 key features and benefits

  • TI's D-CAP+ architecture offers ultra-fast transient response. Its inherent design eliminates beat frequency.
  • Dynamic current sharing and cycle-by-cycle current limit ensure robust multiphase regulator operation.
  • Hybrid analog and digital topology delivers lowest quiescent power consumption, fastest dynamic performance and ultimate flexibility.
  • Industry's smallest 5-mm by 5-mm package.

CSD95372B and CSD95373B key features and benefits

  • Integrated current feedback with 3-percent accuracy eliminates the need for inductor DC resistance (DCR) sensing.
  • High power density with best-in-class thermal performance.
  • Optimized package footprint with DualCool packaging option, facilities easy layout and enhanced heat sinking.

Availability, packaging and pricing

The multiphase Vcore power management solution is available in volume now from TI and its authorized distributors. The TPS53661, TPS53641 and TPS53631 DC/DC controllers are offered in a 40-pin QFN package and priced at US$3.80, $3.30 and $2.80 in 1,000-unit quantities, respectively. The CSD95372BQ5M and CSD95373BQ5M NexFET smart power stages are offered in a 12-pin SON package and priced at US$1.05 and $0.90.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.
