Note: The onboard potentiometer can be used to regulate the output voltage; it boosts up the output voltage when rotated clockwise whereas, bucks the output voltage when rotated counter-clockwise.


Functional circuit for MP1584 DC-DC Buck Module

The image shows a basic configuration or the functional circuit of the module. The MP1584 is used as the main switching regulator on the board. The role of a buck converter is to lower down a voltage level. The operation of the circuit depends upon the state of the switching regulator.

MP1584 Circuit

Some of the reference pins of the MP1584 IC from the circuit above are discussed. The FREQ(Frequency pin) pin on the IC decides the switching frequency. Connecting a resistor from it to the ground can be used to set the switching frequency. The EN(Enable pin) is used to control the chip’s ON/OFF state. The FB(Feedback pin) is the input for the error amplifier. The output voltage is set by a voltage divider(Potentiometer in the module) across output and ground.
