1 Background
The TPS65263 PMIC is a triple 3-A, 2-A, 2-A output current, synchronous step-down (buck) converter with
an operational range of 4.5 V to 18 V.
The TPS65263 is equipped with I2C-compatible bus for communication with system on-chip (SoC) to
control buck converters. The output voltage of each buck can be dynamically scaled from 0.68 V to 1.95 V
in 10-mV step with I2C controlled 7 bits VID. The VID voltage transition slew rate is programmable with 3-
bits control through I2C bus to optimize overshoot or undershoot during VID voltage transition. I2C also
controls enabling and disabling output voltage, setting the pulse skipping mode (PSM) or force continuous
current mode (FCC) at light load condition and reading the power good status, overcurrent warning and
die temperature warning.
As there are many possible options to set the converters, Table 1 presents the performance specification
summary for the EVM.

Table 1. Summary of Performance


Test Conditions Performance
VIN = 4.5 V to 18 V Buck1, 1.5 V, up to 3 A
fsw = 600 kHz (25°C ambient) Buck2, 1.2 V, up to 2 A
Buck3, 2.5 V, up to 2 A

The evaluation module is designed to provide access to the features of the TPS65263. Some
modifications can be made to this module to test performance at different input and output voltages for
bucks. Contact the TI Field Applications Group for assistance.

4.2 Hardware Requirement


This EVM requires an external power supply capable of providing 4.5 V to 18 V at 6 A.
The EVM kit includes a USB-TO-GPIO interface box which, when installed on a PC and connected to the
EVM, allows communication with the EVM via a GUI interface. The minimum PC requirements are:
• Microsoft® Windows® 2000 or Windows XP operating system
• USB port
• Minimum of 30MB of free hard disk space (100MB recommended)
• Minimum of 256MB of RAM

4.3 Hardware Setup


After connecting the power supply to J4, turn on the power supply, and connect J6, J7, and J8 to high or
leave open, the EVM will regulate the output voltages to the value per Table 1. Additional input
capacitance may be required in order to mitigate the inductive voltage droop that may occur during a load-
transient event.
In order to change the output voltage by sending the digital control signal via a PC running the TPS65263
controller software and USB-TO-GPIO interface box, perform the following steps:
Step 1. Connect one end of the USB-TO-GPIO box to the PC using the USB cable and the other end
to J5 of the TPS65263 using the supplied 10-pin ribbon cable per Figure 8. The connectors
on the ribbon cable are keyed to prevent incorrect installation.
Step 2. Connect the power supply on J4 and turn on the power supply.
Step 3. Run the software as explained in Section 4.4.

4.4 Software Install


If installing from the TI Web site, go to www.ti.com .

NOTE: This installation page is best viewed with Microsoft Internet Explorer® browser (the web page
may not work correctly with other browsers)

Click on the Install button; your PC should give you a security warning and ask if you want to install this
application. Select Install to proceed. If a pre-release or Beta version is currently installed on your PC, you
must uninstall this version of the software before installing the final version.
The software attempts to install the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 (if it is not already installed). This
framework is required for the software to run.
To run the software after installation, go to Start → All programs → Texas Instruments. → TPS65263 EVM
Software.
At start-up, the software first checks the firmware version of the USB-TO-GPIO adapter box. If an incorrect
firmware version is installed, the software automatically searches on the Internet (if connected) for
updates. If a new update is available, the software notifies of the update, downloads and installs the
software. Note that after the firmware is updated, the USB cable must be disconnected and then
reconnected between the adapter and PC, as instructed during the install process. The host PC software
also automatically searches on the Internet (if connected) for updates. If a new update is available, the
software notifies the user of the update and downloads and installs it. During future use of the software,
you may be prompted to install a new version if one becomes available on the Web.

NOTE: VERISIGN® Code Signing is used to prevent any malicious code from changing this
application. If at any time in the future the binaries are modified, the code no longer attempts
to run.

The supplied software is used to communicate with the TPS65263 EVM. Click on the icon on the host
computer to start the software. The software displays the main control panel for the user interface.

Figure 9. Screen Capture of TPS65263 Software GUI Interface

Figure 9 shows the control GUI interface. There are seven 8-bit registers embedded in TPS65263, three
to select the output voltage, three to configure the buck converter’s slew rate, and one for status feedback.
Changes can be made by selecting and checking the components in the GUI on the left hand side or by
directly clicking the bits of each register. The I2C address is set to 0x60H by default.
An option is to “write on change”, if this option is set to ON, any change is sent to the EVM immediately; if
this option is set to OFF, “Write” button or “W” button for each register must be clicked to send the control
signal.

performed.
TI assumes no liability for applications assistance or the design of Buyers’ products. Buyers are responsible for their products and
applications using TI components. To minimize the risks associated with Buyers’ products and applications, Buyers should provide
adequate design and operating safeguards.
TI does not warrant or represent that any license, either express or implied, is granted under any patent right, copyright, mask work right, or
other intellectual property right relating to any combination, machine, or process in which TI components or services are used. Information
published by TI regarding third-party products or services does not constitute a license to use such products or services or a warranty or
endorsement thereof. Use of such information may require a license from a third party under the patents or other intellectual property of the
third party, or a license from TI under the patents or other intellectual property of TI.
Reproduction of significant portions of TI information in TI data books or data sheets is permissible only if reproduction is without alteration
and is accompanied by all associated warranties, conditions, limitations, and notices. TI is not responsible or liable for such altered
documentation. Information of third parties may be subject to additional restrictions.
Resale of TI components or services with statements different from or beyond the parameters stated by TI for that component or service
voids all express and any implied warranties for the associated TI component or service and is an unfair and deceptive business practice.
TI is not responsible or liable for any such statements.

harm and take appropriate remedial actions. Buyer will fully indemnify TI and its representatives against any damages arising out of the use
of any TI components in safety-critical applications.
In some cases, TI components may be promoted specifically to facilitate safety-related applications. With such components, TI’s goal is to
help enable customers to design and create their own end-product solutions that meet applicable functional safety standards and
requirements. Nonetheless, such components are subject to these terms.
No TI components are authorized for use in FDA Class III (or similar life-critical medical equipment) unless authorized officers of the parties
have executed a special agreement specifically governing such use.
Only those TI components which TI has specifically designated as military grade or “enhanced plastic” are designed and intended for use in
military/aerospace applications or environments. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that any military or aerospace use of TI components
which have not been so designated is solely at the Buyer's risk, and that Buyer is solely responsible for compliance with all legal and
regulatory requirements in connection with such use.
TI has specifically designated certain components as meeting ISO/TS16949 requirements, mainly for automotive use. In any case of use of
non-designated products, TI will not be responsible for any failure to meet ISO/TS16949.
