Micrel Inc. Unveils New Family of Power Modules

Micrel Inc. has unveiled a new family of power modules. The MIC28304/MIC45205/MIC45208/MIC45212 family of power modules operate from 4.5V to 26.5V (70V for MIC28304) input and are capable of delivering currents of 3A, 6A, 10A and 14A, respectively. These highly integrated power module solutions are designed to simplify the system power design process while offering exceptional performance. These modules feature a complete switching power supply solution in an ultra-compact, thermally-enhanced, rugged, surface mount QFN package. The devices integrate a PWM controller, power MOSFETs, inductor, and associated discrete components to save board space and reduce component counts which results in higher system reliability. The devices are ideally suited for RAID systems, network routers, blade servers, cellular base stations, medical test equipment, and test instrumentation.

Micrel Inc. Unveils MIC28304/MIC45205/MIC45208/MIC45212

Micrel Inc. announced that it will be unveiling a family of power modules at APEC 2014. The MIC28304/MIC45205/MIC45208/MIC45212 family of power modules operate from 4.5V to 26.5V (70V for MIC28304) input and are capable of delivering currents of 3A, 6A, 10A and 14A, respectively. These highly integrated power module solutions are designed to simplify the system power design process while offering exceptional performance. These modules feature a complete switching power supply solution in an ultra-compact, thermally-enhanced, rugged, surface mount QFN package. The devices integrate a PWM controller, power MOSFETs, inductor, and associated discrete components to save board space and reduce component counts which results in higher system reliability. The devices are ideally suited for RAID systems, network routers, blade servers, cellular base stations, medical test equipment, and test instrumentation. Engineering samples can be ordered by contacting the factory: www.micrel.com. The MIC28304/MIC45205/MIC45208/MIC45212 will be available in production and volume quantities starting in the second quarter of 2014 with pricing starting at $7.10/$4.85/$7.2/$8.88, respectively. The MIC28304/MIC45205/MIC45208/MIC45212 offer peak efficiency up to 93% and are optimized for fast load transient responses by utilizing Micrel's Hyperspeed Control(TM) architecture, This minimizes output capacitance to further reduce the overall solution size. In addition, these modules meet the demanding CISPR22, CLASS B, EMI standards, further reducing design complexity. The MIC28304 70V rating makes it suitable for applications such as automotive, industrial robotics, industrial automation, avionics, and 48V telecom. These modules protect against overcurrent, overvoltage and thermal faults. There is also an internal soft-start function that controls the inrush current. Additional features include the flexibility to adjust the current limit, frequency (200kHz to 600kHz), and output voltage (from 0.8V to 5.5V). Optional pin-to-pin solutions are available with Micrel's Hyperlight Load(TM) control scheme to improve light load efficiency if required. These devices are available in a small 8mm x 8mm (MIC45205), 10mm x 10mm (MIC45208) and 12mm x 12mm (MIC28304/MIC45212) QFN packages, and operate from -40degC to +125degC.

Micrel Inc. to Unveil MIC2111 DC/DC Multi-Mode Controller

Micrel Inc. has announced that it will unveil the MIC2111 DC/DC multi-mode controller. The device is capable of operating in a valley current mode or a voltage mode configuration. This controller provides the necessary PWM signal to interface with industry standard DrMOS. It also interfaces with fully discrete power stages to deliver a high current, low voltage solution to high performance power demanding core rails in the server, communication, and networking markets. The MIC2111 will be available in production and volume quantities starting in the second quarter of 2014 with 1,000 quantities pricing starting at $0.95. In a valley current mode configuration, the MIC2111 allows high frequency operation (up to 2MHz) even under low duty cycle conditions. This resolves a common challenge often present when powering high current, low-voltage core power rails associated with FPGAs, ASICs, and processors from a 12V bus supply. The higher frequency enables a wider operating bandwidth, thereby improving the load transient response while reducing the amount of output capacitance and the size of the inductor. As a benefit, board space and cost are minimized. The same device can also be configured in a voltage mode operation, providing for even better immunity in noise sensitive applications. To improve performance, the MIC2111 uses a differential DCR current sense for an accurate current limit as well as remote sensing that improves output voltage accuracy; a critical requirement for low voltage core rails in high current applications. This device offers a host of additional features to provide unique flexibility and protection. The MIC2111 offers overcurrent, over and under voltage protection and is designed to safely start up into a pre-biased output. For additional robustness, this solution includes Micrel's proprietary bi-directional single wire fault pin to ensure that the controller and power stage are operating properly. The switching frequency, output voltage, thermal limit, and soft-start time can all be adjusted externally to meet design requirements. Other factory trimmed optional features include a power on delay and soft-stop operation. The MIC2111 in available in a small 3mm x 3mm TQFN package and operates from -40 ºC to +125 ºC.
