DC/DC Control ICs
Micrel announces a family of four complementary output DC/DC push-pull control ICs. The MIC3838 and MIC3839 are flexible push-pull control ICs housed in a MSOP-10 package. The MIC3838/39 can be configured for either voltage-mode or current-mode control. The MIC3808 and MIC3809 are 8-pin current mode push-pull control ICs. They are available in SOP-8 packages, as well as the MSOP-8. The devices feature 130 uA typical start up current; 1 mA typical operating current; operation to 1 MHz; internal soft-start; on-chip VDD clamping; and output drive: 500 mA peak source, 1 A peak sink current.
