Micrel Launches New 85V Full Bridge MOSFET Driver Addressing Technology Advances in Battery Operated Tools

Micrel Inc. introduced the MIC4606, a 85V Full Bridge MOSFET driver that features Adaptive-Dead-Time and Shoot-Through Protection. The device is part of Micrel's highly successful 85V MOSFET Driver family first launched in 2013 and is designed to focus on the growing power needs of multiple applications. The 85V MIC4606 family is part of Micrel's strategy to address battery powered tools, uninterrupted power supplies, radio controlled toys and the growing drone market. The MIC4606 is currently available in volume with pricing starting at $1.37 for 1K quantities in a 4mm x 4mm QFN package. The MIC4606 combines a full array of features and technology solutions all designed to maximize power efficiency. The Adaptive-Dead-Time circuitry actively monitors the Full Bridge to minimize time between high and low side MOSFET transitions. The Anti-Shoot-Through circuitry prevents erroneous inputs and noise from turning on both MOSFETs at the same time. The device also offers a wide 5.5V to 16V operating supply range that also maximizes system efficiency. The low 5.5V operating voltage allows for longer run time in battery powered applications. These features combine to make the MIC4606 an ideal solution for the industry's most demanding battery operated motor applications including power tools and power DC/AC inverters. In addition, the 85V operating voltage offers plenty of margins in order to protect against voltage spikes that are typical in motor drive and power supply circuitry. The MIC4606 is available in a tiny 16 pin 4mm × 4mm QFN package with an operating junction temperature range of --40-degC to +125-degC.

Micrel Names Robert Herb to Board of Directors

Micrel Inc. announced that it has named Mr. Robert Herb, a 30 year veteran of the semiconductor industry, as a new independent member to its Board of Directors, effective immediately. Mr. Herb replaces Michael Callahan, who recently passed away after a lengthy illness. Mr. Herb has been appointed to serve on the Board's Compensation Committee and its Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee.

Micrel, Inc. Introduces MIC2873/MIC2874, Camera Flash LED Driver Solutions

Micrel Inc. introduced the MIC2873/MIC2874, an ultra-compact, camera flash LED driver that integrates a 1.2A boost converter and LED driver circuit into a small 9 pin, 1.3mm by 1.3mm chip scale package. Operating from 2.7V to 5.5V and featuring up to 92% efficiency, these solutions are ideally suited for Li-Ion battery operated portable applications such as phone cameras, tablet computers, handset video equipment, and digital cameras. High switching frequencies (2MHz for the MIC2873 and 4MHz for the MIC2874) allow for the use of a miniature size chip inductor and small input/output capacitors, thereby reducing the total power footprint to a solution size to less than 10mm squared. In addition, these devices can operate in either a flash or torch mode with the ability to provide a boost or linear output using a single wire communication interface or through external pins. The MIC2873/MIC2874 are available in volume with 1,000 quantities pricing starting at $0.26/$0.30 respectively. Micrel's new generation of high brightness Flash LED drivers address the growing market of tablets and mobile phones by reducing solution size for LED flash applications with a 40% reduction in package size. These parts are fully protected against overvoltage and overcurrent conditions with a configurable time-out feature. In addition, these ICs provide LED short circuit detection and a true load disconnect feature for best system reliability.
