RM590 SeriesNEW

400mA Synchronous Step-down DC/DC Module with MODE pin and Inductor

  • Consumer
  • RoHS

The RM590 is a synchronous, step-down DC/DC converter which delivers up to 400mA of output current. The RM590 can be configured for either PWM/VFM automatic shift operation or forced PWM operation by controlling of MODE pin.

It has a built-in inductor and is available in 2.2 (mm) x 2.0 (mm) x 1.5 (mm) sized QFN2220-8 package for high density mounting. Therefore, it is possible to save space in the mounting area.

  • Having an inductor built-in, it is possible to simplify the board design and reduce the mounting area.
  • PWM/VFM automatic shift operation provides high efficiency at light loads.
  • Having an inductor built-in, the number of parts can be reduced, and the man-hours for managing purchased parts can be reduced (concern about EOL).
