The RT2657BQ is a high efficiency Pulse-Width-Modulated (PWM) step-down DC/DC converter, capable of delivering 600mA output current over a wide input voltage range from 2.7V to 5.5V. The RT2657BQ is ideally suited for portable electronic devices that are powered from 1-cell Li-ion battery or from other power sources such as cellular phones, PDAs, hand-held devices, game console and related accessories.

The internal synchronous rectifier with low RDS(ON) dramatically reduces conduction loss at PWM mode. No external Schottky diode is required in practical applications. The RT2657BQ enters Low Dropout Mode when normal Pulse -Width Mode cannot provide regulated output voltage by continuously turning on the high-side P-MOSFET. The RT2657BQ enters shut-down mode and consumes less than 5μA when the EN pin is pulled low. The switching ripple is easily smoothed-out by small package filtering elements due to a fixed operating frequency of 2.25MHz.

The RT2657BQ is available in the small WDFN-8L 3x3 package.
