1.5MHz, 600mA, High Efficiency PWM Step-Down Converter


Update Alert Share

The RT8099/A is a Pulse-Width-Modulated (PWM) DC/DC step-down converter, and is capable of delivering 0.6A output current over a wide input voltage range from 2.7V to 5.5V. The RT8099/A is ideally suited for portable electronic devices that are powered from 1-cell Li-ion battery such as cellular phones, PDAs and handy-terminals. Internal synchronous rectifier with low RDS(ON) dramatically reduces conduction loss at PWM mode. No external schottky barrier diode is required in practical application.

The RT8099/A enters low-dropout mode when normal PWM cannot provide regulated output voltage by continuously turning on the high-side P-MOSFET. The RT8099/A enters shut-down mode and consumes less than 0.1μA when the EN pin is pulled low. The switching ripple is easily smoothed-out by small package filtering elements due to 1.5MHz high switching frequency. Other features include soft-start, auto discharge, lower internal reference voltage, over-temperature protection, and over-current protection.

The RT8099/A is available in the small UDFN-6L 1.6x1.6 package for saving PCB space.
