When the MODE/SYNC pin is low, power save mode is allowed. The device operates in PWM mode as long as the peak inductor current is above the PFM threshold of approximately 0.8 A. When the peak inductor current drops below the PFM threshold, the device starts to skip switching pulses. In power save mode, the switching frequency decreases with the load current maintaining high efficiency. In addition, the frequency set with the resistor on COMP/FSET must be in a range of 1.8 MHz to 3.5 MHz.
