MIC2194 Micrel MIC2194
400kHz SO-8 Buck Control IC General Description Features MicrelвЂ™s MIC2194 is a high efficiency PWM buck control IC
housed in the SO-8 package. Its 2.9V to 14V input voltage
range allows it to efficiently step down voltages in 3.3V, 5V,
and 12V systems as well as 1-or 2-cell Li Ion battery powered
applications. The flexible architecture of the MIC2194 allows
for it to be configured as a buck or a buck-boost converter.
The MIC2194 solution saves valuable board space. The
device is housed in the space-saving SO-8 package, whose
low pin-count minimizes external components. Its 400kHz
PWM operation allows a small inductor and small output
capacitors to be used. The MIC2194 can implement allceramic capacitor solutions.
The MIC2194 drives a high-side P-channel MOSFET. A low
output driver impedance of 2в„¦ allows the MIC2194 to drive
large external MOSFETs to generate a wide range of output
currents. The MIC2194 can achieve maximum duty cycles of
100%, which can be useful in low headroom applications.
The MIC2194 is available in an 8 pin SOIC package with a
junction temperature range of вЂ“40В°C to +125В°C. 2.9V to 14V input voltage range
