MIC4742 Data Sheet
2 MHz Dual 2A Integrated Switch
Buck Regulator General Description Features The Micrel MIC4742 is a high efficiency dual PWM buck
(step-down) regulator that provides dual 2A current output.
The MIC4742 operates at 2MHz. A proprietary internal
compensation technique allows a closed loop bandwidth of
over 200kHz. The low on-resistance internal P-Channel MOSFET of the
MIC4742 allows efficiencies over 92%, reduces external
components count and eliminates the need for an
expensive current sense resistor.
The MIC4742 operates from 2.9V to 5.5V input and the
output can be adjusted down to 0.6V. The device can
operate with a maximum duty cycle of 100% for use in lowdropout conditions.
The MIC4742 is available in the exposed pad 16-pin
3mm x 3mm MLFВ® and EPAD TSSOP-16 packages with a
junction operating range from вЂ“40В°C to +125В°C.
