Microchip Technology Inc. announces the latest addition to its analog power-management product family—the MCP1602 switching regulator. The 2.0 MHz, 500 mA switcher has a power-good feature that indicates when true voltage regulation has been achieved, ensuring reliable system behavior. With both adjustable and fixed output voltages, as well as auto transition from pulse-width-modulation (PWM) to pulse-frequency-modulation (PFM) modes, the switcher reduces heat dissipation and extends battery life in a variety of portable, handheld electronic devices.
