Micrel Introduces Hyper Light Load(TM) Efficient Synchronous DC-DC Controller With Single Supply Operation.

Summary: Inc., an industry leader in analog, high bandwidth communications and Ethernet IC solutions, today introduced the MIC2165, a Hyper Light Load(tm) efficient, adaptive on-time, synchronous DC-DC controller.

Inc. (NASDAQ: MCRL), an industry leader in analog, high bandwidth communications and Ethernet IC solutions, today introduced the MIC2165, a Hyper Light Load(tm) efficient, adaptive on-time, synchronous DC-DC controller. The device features an architecture that significantly reduces the required output capacitance and allows for excellent transient response, while making high delta-V operation (VIN=28V, VOUT=0.8V) possible. The MIC2165 employs a Hyper Light Load(tm) feature to achieve very high efficiencies at light load conditions. Also built into MIC2165 are a power good signal and an internal VDD regulator that enables single-supply operation. The solution is ideal for applications that require very low standby power dissipation such as set-top boxes, gateways, routers, computing peripherals, servers, processor core supply and low-voltage distributed power supplies. The MIC2165 is currently available in volume quantities with pricing starting at $1.00 for 1K quantity. "A host of customer-friendly features such as internal 5V VDD regulator and power good output, combined with Micrel's Hyper Light Load(tm) efficiency offer terrific benefits including reduced BOM cost and world class efficiency," stated Doyle Slack, director of analog marketing, Micrel. "The huge advantage gained by our Hyper Light Load(tm) is very high efficiency at light load conditions. This results in minimal power loss during standby modes."
