MIC4684 Micrel, Inc. MIC4684
2A High-Efficiency SuperSwitcherв„ў Buck Regulator General Description Features The MIC4684 is a high-efficiency 200kHz stepdown (buck)
switching regulator. Power conversion efficiency of above
85% is easily obtainable for a wide variety of applications.
The MIC4684 achieves 2A of continuous current in an 8-lead
SO (small outline) package at 60В°C ambient temperature.
High efficiency is maintained over a wide output current range
by utilizing a boost capacitor to increase the voltage available
to saturate the internal power switch. As a result of this high
efficiency, no external heat sink is required. The MIC4684,
housed in an SO-8, can replace larger TO-220 and TO-263
packages in many applications.
The MIC4684 allows for a high degree of safety. It has a wide
input voltage range of 4V to 30V (34V transient), allowing
it to be used in applications where input voltage transients
may be present. Built-in safety features include over-current
protection, frequency-foldback short-circuit protection, and
The MIC4684 is available in an 8-lead SO package with a
junction temperature range of вЂ“40В°C to +125В°C. SO-8 package with 2A continuous output current
