Texas Instruments Inc. has introduced a high-efficiency, primary-side feedback transformer driver for isolated 2W power supplies that can used in programmable logic controllers, industrial automation and other noise-sensitive data acquisition designs.

According to TI, the TPS55010 with integrated FETs features a simple and unique Fly-Buck topology to provide isolated power and remove ground loops from analog circuitry and communication interfaces, such as RS-485 and RS-232, from an unregulated 3.3V or 5V input. The 2W converter does not need an optocoupler, and provides up to 85 percent power efficiency.

The isolated DC/DC converter can be used with high-speed digital isolators, such as the ISO721 and ISO722, and isolated transceivers like the ISO1176 isolated Profibus device, the ISO35 isolated 3.3V RS-485 device and the ISO3086 isolated 5V RS-485 transceiver. In addition to the TPS55010, TI's popular 1-W DCP010505 open-frame power module with integrated transformer provides simple isolated power conversion and ground-loop elimination.

The TPS55010 features wide switching frequency range (100kHzC2MHz) that offers design flexibility to optimize efficiency and space. Frequency can be synchronized to a master clock to reduce noise in sensitive data acquisition circuitry. It also supports -40C50C operating junction temperature and comes in a space-saving, thermally enhanced 3 x 3 x 1mm monolithic QFN package.

The TPS55010 is available in volume now in a 16-pin, 3 x 3mm thermally enhanced QFN package. Suggested resale pricing is $1.65 in 1,000-unit quantities. The DCP010505 plug-in module comes in a 7-pin SIP package with a suggested resale price of $5.35 in 1,000-unit quantities.
