RP550 Series
Dual 1A PWM/VFM Step-down DCDC Converter with Synchronous Rectifier

Product Specifications

The RP550 Series are dual output CMOS-based PWM/VFM step-down DC/DC converters with synchronous rectifier.
RP550 can be selected from two control types by input signal to the MODE pin - forced PWM control or PWM/VFM auto switching control in which mode automatically switches to high-efficiency VFM mode in low output current.

RP550 includes a soft start circuit, an under-voltage lockout circuit (UVLO), thermal shutdown circuit and a latch protection circuit.
By simply using an inductor, resistors and capacitors as external components, a high-efficiency step-down DC/DC converter can be easily configured. The small inductor (2.2 µH) and output capacitor (10 µF) can be used by the switching of 2.25 MHz.
