Future Electronics Launches New Video Featuring the MIC28304 Series from Micrel

Montreal, Canada – September 2, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has launched a new video featuring the MIC28304 Series from Micrel.

The new video showcases Micrel’s MIC28304 micro power module, a highly reliable DC/DC turnkey solution in a very small 12mm x 12mm QFN package, which allows designers to put the desired supply rail where it is required and protect electronic devices from unwanted high voltage transients. It also features a unique adaptive ON-time control architecture. It is the first micro power module that can tolerate surges up to 70 Volts and up to 3 Amps while handling a large difference between input and output voltages, which makes it ideal for applications that are noise sensitive and subject to large voltage transients. It also offers best in class low radiated emissions.

The MIC28304 is a synchronous step-down regulator module, which incorporates a DC-to-DC controller, power MOSFETs, bootstrap capacitor, input capacitor bootstrap diode and an inductor in one compact package. The input supply can range from 4.5V to 70V, and the output voltage is adjustable down to 0.8V. The module operates with programmable switching frequency from 200kHz to 600kHz.

The MIC28304 is usually followed by a load switch to power 3.3 Volt or 5 Volt circuitry and multi buck stage in order to power the microcontrollers to ensure proper power sequencing.

The MIC28304 eliminates the need to design, evaluate, test or procure discrete components. It is easy to lay out and place near active components, therefore minimizing the need to route long supply traces. The module also offers better EMI performance than discrete solutions because of the very close proximity of its internal components. Other benefits include vibration and humidity resistance because all the components of the MIC28304 are condensed inside the package. It also has reliability and simple design while at the same time offering great power efficiency. All of these benefits lead to a shorter time to market than other solutions, and the space savings are about 60% of the board area when compared with a discrete solution.

The MIC28304 is offered in HyperLight Load Control and Hyper Speed Control options in order to address applications with several load power sequencing conditions, with superior efficiency and ultra-fast transient response time under medium to heavy loads. HyperLight Load Control ensures high efficiency under light load conditions, which is normally used in systems that have standby condition. As applications are available with a variety of load conditions, Hyper Speed Control ensures quick response time to output load transients.

The MIC28304 ensures IC protection during fault conditions by having several safety features that are important for system reliability including undervoltage lockout, internal soft-start to reduce inrush current, foldback current limit, thermal shutdown and hiccup mode short-circuit protection.

The MIC28304 can be used in several industrial applications to support supply voltages that are required by low voltage active circuitry as well as mixed signal devices like analog to digital converters, microprocessors, switches and sensors. Other applications include distributed power systems and medical, telecom and automotive sectors.
