This DC-DC Module is based on IC XL6009E1 which is a high-performance step-up switching current (BOOST) module. The module uses the second generation of high-frequency switching technology XL6009E1 core chip that offers superior performance over the first generation technology LM2577. XL6009 replaces LM2577 module as LM2577 is about to be phased out.
XL6009 DC-DC Step Up Boost Module
- Wide input voltage range of 3V – 32V (optimum operating voltage range is 5 – 32V)
- Wide Output voltage range of 5V – 35V (Adjustable using on board preset)
- Built in 4A MOSFET switches enables efficiency of up to 94% (LM2577 current is 3A)
- High switching frequency of 400KHz, can use a small-capacity filter capacitors that can achieve very good results (LM2577 switching frequency is only 50KHz)
