The Texas Instruments TPS7H4001-SP is a synchronous buck converter suitable for satellite point of load supply, communications and optical imaging payload.

The converter is radiation hardened available in a thermally enhanced ceramic flatpack package with integrated low-resistance high-side and low-side MOSFETs. Current mode control helps achieve high efficiency and reduced component count.

SS/TR pin controls the output voltage start-up ramp allowing operation as either in tracking situations or a stand-alone power supply. With a correct configuration of the enable and the power good pins, power sequencing also possible.

The converter can be configured in primary-secondary mode and with the SYNC2 pin, four devices can be configured in parallel without an external clock.

To protect the device, current runway is prevented by low-side sourcing current limit and the overload situations are prevented by cycle-by-cycle current limiting on the high-side FET.

Low-side sinking current limit turns off the low-side MOSFET preventing the excessive reverse current. When thermal shutdown temperature is exceeded by the die temperature, the component is disabled by thermal shutdown.
