EGM2576 series is designed to provide all the active function for a step-down (buck)switching regulator, and drives a maximum load current as high as 3A line and load regulations.
EGM2576 is available in fixed output voltages of 3.3V, 5V, and a versatile Adjustable output version.
These regulators are simple to use and require minimum number of external components.
The features include internal frequency compensation and a fixed-frequency oscillator.
The EGM2576 is high-efficiency replacements for popular three-terminal linear regulators,and is requiring a smaller heat sink or even no need heat sink.
EGM2576 performs well with standard inductors from most of manufacturers, and simplifying the design of switch-mode power supplies.
External shutdown is included with 80 µA (typical) standby current.
The output switch has cycle-by-cycle current limiting as well as thermal shutdown for full protection under fault conditions.
EGM2576 operates at a switching frequency of 52 kHz which allowing smaller size filter components than what would be needed with lower frequency switching regulators.
