MIC5159 Programmable Current Limit µCap LDO Regulator Controller General Description Features
Micrel’s MIC5159 is a precision-voltage regulator • Fast transient response controller. Used with an external P-Channel MOSFET, the •
Input voltage range: V
MIC5159 forms a two-chip low-dropout regulator capable
IN 1.65V to 5.5V
• of driving a wide range of output currents. ±1.0% initial output tolerance • Fixed 1.8V or adjustable output voltage down to 1.25V The MIC5159 operates from an input of 1.65V to 5.5V. The low input voltage allows the MIC5159 to operate off of high •
Stable with ceramic output capacitor
power 1.8V rails to generate lower voltages such as 1.5V. •
Capable up to 10A
Features of the MIC5159 include enable input and current- • Excellent line and load regulation specifications limit protection. As a µCap design, the MIC5159 is stable • Logic-controlled shutdown with ceramic output capacitors. • Programmable current limit The MIC5159 is packaged in the IttyBitty® SOT-23-6, and • Current-limit protection is offered in fixed and adjustable output voltages. Junction temperature range of the MIC5159 is from –40°C to • IttyBitty® SOT-23-6 package +125°C. • Available temperature range:–40°C to +125°C •
Applications
