This tiny power module is an easy-to-use integrated power solution that combines a 3A DC/DC converter chip with inbuilt power MOSFETs, an inductor, and passives into a 3-pin, through-hole package. The standard TO-220 pin-out allows a much-improved replacement of linear regulators packaged in this industry-standard footprint. The circuit provides much higher efficiency and output current without the need for a heatsink. This is an easy replacement of the LM7805 linear regulator with higher input voltage and output current than LM7805. Operating supply 8-28V DC, output 5V DC at 1A. The project is built using the TPS54302 chip from Texas instruments.

The TPS54302 is a 4.5-V to 28-V input voltage range, 3-A synchronous buck converter. The device includes two integrated switching FETs, internal loop compensation and 5-ms internal soft start to reduce component count. By integrating the MOSFETs and employing the SOT- 23 package, the TPS54302 achieves the high-power density and offers a small footprint on the PCB. Advanced Eco-mode implementation maximizes the light load efficiency and reduces power loss. In the TPS54302, the frequency spread-spectrum operation is introduced for EMI reduction. Cycle-by-cycle current limit in both high-side MOSFET protects the converter in an overload condition and is enhanced by a low-side MOSFET freewheeling current limit which prevents current runaway. Hiccup mode protection is triggered if the overcurrent condition has persisted for longer than the present time.

Output

The circuit provides a fixed 5V DC and this can be changed. The output voltage is set with a resistor divider from the output node to the FB pin. It is recommended to use divider resistors with 1% tolerance or better. Start with 100 kΩ for the upper resistor divider and use Equation 3 to calculate the output voltage. To improve efficiency at light loads consider using large value resistors but keep in mind that if the values are too high the regulator is more susceptible to noise and voltage errors from the FB input current are noticeable.
