DALLAS, Feb. 7, 2013

DALLAS, Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI)
(NASDAQ: TXN) today introduced a low-voltage power management unit with the
fastest start-up time of under 10 mS for demanding instant-on automotive
applications, such as graphical cluster, infotainment and advanced driver
assistance systems (ADAS). The TPS659119-Q1 is optimized to work with TI's
automotive OMAP™ processors, including the DRA6x family (codenamed "Jacinto")
of infotainment processors, and other ARM® Cortex™-A offerings. In addition,
the TPS659119-Q1 is factory-programmed and has customizable power-up and
power-down sequencing based on the customer's processor of choice and system
power needs. For more information or to order samples, visit

Key features and benefits of the TPS659119-Q1:

  oDynamic voltage scaling for processor core flexibility: The TPS659119-Q1
    has three efficient step-down DC/DC converters; two with dynamic voltage
    scaling and one for input/output (I/O) power.
  oSupports high current rail: The TPS659119-Q1 has a control signal that
    enables one external buck controller for external FETs to support a high
    current rail when necessary.
  oHighly efficient, flexible output: With eight low dropout (LDO) voltage
    regulators and one real-time clock (RTC) LDO, the TPS659119-Q1 provides
    flexible output power to serve multiple processors.
  oHigh integration ensures maximum design flexibility: The TPS659119-Q1 is
    optimized for TI's automotive OMAP™ processors, including the DRA6x family
    of infotainment processors.

Tools and support:
The TPS659119-Q1 evaluation module (EVM) is available to speed the evaluation
of the TPS659119-Q1. Priced at $99.00, the evaluation module is available
upon request at www.ti.com/tps659119evm-pr. A reference design, schematic
checklist, and application note are also available.

Availability, packaging and pricing
The TPS659119-Q1 comes in a HTQFP 80-pin package and is available now for
ordering at a suggested retail price of $5.61 in 100-unit quantities.
