The HL7594 is a synchronous buck converter optimized to supply different sub systems of portable applications. Its input voltage range is 2.5V to 5.5V. Its output voltage range is either 0.600V to 1.394V in 6.25mV steps or 0.27V to 0.6272V in 2.8125mV steps, programmable through an I2C interface. Its output voltage can be adjusted on the fly to provide dynamic voltage scaling (DVS) function with a programmable slew rate.

The HL7594 can deliver up to 3A with max 88% efficiency, while maintaining over 80% efficiency at load currents as low as 10mA. It operates at fixed frequency of 2.4MHz, which reduces the value of the external components. A wide range of output capacitors can be used to optimize VOUT stability during load transients. Inductors from 0.33µH to 0.47µH may be used without affecting loop stability.
