The LM2593HV series of regulators are monolithic integrated circuits that provide all the
active functions for a step-down (buck) switching regulator, capable of driving a 2-A load with
excellent line and load regulation. These devices are available in fixed output voltages of 3.3-V,
5-V, and an adjustable output version.
This series of switching regulators is similar to the LM2592HV with additional
supervisory and performance features.
Requiring a minimum number of external components, these regulators are simple to use and
include internal frequency compensation, improved line and load specifications, fixed-frequency
oscillator, Shutdown/Soft-start, output error flag, and flag delay.
The LM2593HV operates at a switching frequency of 150 kHz, thus allowing smaller sized
filter components than what would be needed with lower frequency switching regulators. Available in
a standard 7-pin TO-220 package with several different lead bend options, and a 7-pin TO-263
Other features include a specified ±4% tolerance on output voltage under all conditions
of input voltage and output load conditions, and ±15% on the oscillator frequency. External
shutdown is included, featuring typically 90-µA standby current. Self-protection features include a
two stage current limit for the output switch and an overtemperature shutdown for complete
protection under fault conditions.
