Highly integrated buck-boost controller efficiently transfers power between dual automotive battery systems
Texas Instruments (TI) introduced the industry's first fully integrated multiphase bidirectional DC/DC current controller, which efficiently transfers electric power greater than 500 W per phase between dual 48-V and 12-V automotive battery systems. The highly integrated LM5170-Q1 analog controller features an innovative average current-mode control method that overcomes the challenges of today's high-component-count, full digital control schemes.
Hybrid electric vehicles use both a high-voltage 48-V battery and the standard 12-V automotive battery. Design engineers typically manage these dual battery systems using a digital control scheme, which includes multiple discrete components such as current-sense amplifiers, gate drivers and protection circuits. These full digital control schemes are bulky and expensive. To solve this challenge while improving performance and system reliability, TI offers a mixed architecture in which the microcontroller handles higher-level intelligent management, and the highly integrated LM5170-Q1 analog controller provides the power conversion.
