MIC2169 Micrel MIC2169
500kHz PWM Synchronous Buck Control IC General Description Features The MIC2169 is a high-efficiency, simple to use 500kHz PWM
synchronous buck control IC housed in a small MSOP-10
package. The MIC2169 allows compact DC/DC solutions
with a minimal external component count and cost.
The MIC2169 operates using a 3V to 14.5V input, without
the need for any additional bias voltage. The output voltage
can be precisely regulated down to 0.8V. The adaptive all
N-Channel MOSFET drive scheme allows efficiencies, over
95%, across a wide load range.
The MIC2169 senses current across the high-side N-Channel
MOSFET, eliminating the need for an expensive and lossy
current-sense resistor. Current limit accuracy is maintained
via a positive temperature coefficient that tracks the increasing RDS(ON) of the external MOSFET. Additional cost and
space are saved by the internal in-rush-current limiting and
The MIC2169 is available in a 10-pin MSOP package, with a
wide junction operating range of вЂ“40В°C to +125В°C.
