Future Electronics Features Micrel’s MIC33163/4 Synchronous Buck Regulators

Montreal, Canada – November 27, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, offers availability of the highly efficient MIC33163/4 synchronous buck regulators from Micrel.

The MIC33163/4 is a highly efficient synchronous buck regulator with integrated inductor which provides the optimal trade-off between footprint and efficiency. The MIC33163/4 operates at 4MHz switching frequency and provides up to 1A output current. In addition, the 100% duty cycle and HLL mode of operation delivers very-high efficiency at light loads and ultra-fast transient response, making the MIC33163/4 ideally suited for space constrained applications and a great alternative for low dropout regulators. An additional benefit of this proprietary architecture is very low output ripple voltage throughout the entire load range with the use of small output capacitors.

The MIC33163/4 provides a small compact total solution size of 4.6mm x 7mm with very few tiny external components.

At higher loads, the MIC33163/4 provides a constant switching frequency around 4MHz while achieving peak efficiencies up to 93%. It also includes under-voltage lockout to ensure proper operation under power-sag conditions, internal softstart to reduce inrush current, fold-back current limit, power good indicator and thermal shutdown. The MIC33163/4 is available in 20-pin 2.5mm × 3.0mm x 1.1mm QFN package with an operating junction temperature range from –40°C to +125°C.

Future Electronics Promotes the MIC28304 Evaluation Board from Micrel

Montreal, Canada – July 11, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, promotes the MIC28304 Evaluation Board from Micrel.

The MIC28304 from Micrel is a synchronous step down regulator module, featuring a unique adaptive ON-time control architecture. The module incorporates a DC-to-DC controller, power MOSFETs, bootstrap diode, bootstrap capacitor and an inductor in a single package. The MIC28304 operates over an input supply range from 4.5V to 70V and can be used to supply up to 3A of output current. The output voltage is adjustable down to 0.8V with a guaranteed accuracy of ±1%. The device operates with programmable switching frequency from 200kHz to 600kHz.

The MIC28304-1 has the HyperLight Load® architecture, so it can operate in pulse skipping mode at light load. However, it operates in fixed frequency CCM mode from medium to heavy load. The MIC28304-2 has Hyper Speed Control™ architecture, which operates in fixed frequency CCM mode under all load conditions.

The basic parameters of the evaluation board are:

  • Input: 7V to 70V
  • Output: 0.8V to 5V at 3A
  • 600kHz Switching Frequency (adjustable 200kHz to 600kHz)

The MIC28304-1 and MIC28304-2 evaluation board requires only a single power supply with at least 10A current capability. No external linear regulator is required to power the internal biasing of the IC because the MIC28304 has internal PVDD LDO.

Future Electronics Features the MIC8xx Series of Voltage Supervisors from Micrel Semiconductor

Montreal, Canada – June 10, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, announces the MIC8xx Series of voltage supervisors from Micrel Semiconductor.

The MIC841LYC5 TR and MIC842 are micropower, precision voltage comparators with an on-chip voltage reference. Both devices are intended for voltage monitoring applications. External resistors are used to set the voltage monitor threshold. When the threshold is crossed, the outputs switch polarity.

The MIC842 incorporates a voltage reference and comparator with fixed internal hysteresis; two external resistors are used to set the switching threshold voltage. The MIC841 provides a similar function with user adjustable hysteresis; this part requires three external resistors to set the upper and lower thresholds (the difference between the threshold voltages being the hysteresis voltage).

Both the MIC841 and MIC842 are available with push-pull or open-drain output stage. The push-pull output stage is configured either active high or active low; the open-drain output stage is only configured active high. Supply current is extremely low (1.5 μA, typical), making it ideal for portable applications. The MIC841/2 is supplied in Micrel’s Teeny™ 5-lead SC-70 package.

Applications include PDAs, pagers, cordless phones, consumer electronics, embedded controllers, and personal electronics.
