LM2588: Can I disable the shutdown funtion?

Part Number: LM2588


In the picture below, it seems to be down from 3V or higher.
I don't want to use shutdown funtion
Can I not use shutdown funtion?


  • Hi David,

    If you don't want to use shutdown function, just connect a resistor to this pin to ground to set the switching frequency that you need.
    By the way, what's the vin range, Vo and load current range? Maybe I could find another boost converter device with lower price and smaller size.
