MIC2169A Micrel MIC2169A
500kHz PWM Synchronous Buck Control IC General Description Features The MIC2169A is a high-efficiency, simple to use 500kHz
PWM synchronous buck control IC housed in a small MSOP10 package. The MIC2169A allows compact DC/DC solutions
with a minimal external component count and cost.
The MIC2169A operates from a 3V to 14.5V input, without
the need of any additional bias voltage. The output voltage
can be precisely regulated down to 0.8V. The adaptive all
NвЂ‘Channel MOSFET drive scheme allows efficiencies over
95% across a wide load range.
The MIC2169A senses current across the high-side NChannel MOSFET, eliminating the need for an expensive
and lossy current-sense resistor. Current limit accuracy is
maintained by a positive temperature coefficient that tracks
the increasing RDS(ON) of the external MOSFET. Further cost
and space are saved by the internal in-rush-current limiting
The MIC2169A is available in a 10-pin MSOP package, with
a wide junction operating range of вЂ“40В°C to +125В°C.
