| The Micrel MIC22405 is a high efficiency, 4 A integrated switch synchronous buck (step-down) regulator. The MIC22405 is optimized for highest efficiency, achieving more than 95% efficiency while still switching at 1 MHz. The ultra-high speed control loop keeps the output voltage within regulation even under the extreme transient load swings commonly found in FPGAs and low-voltage ASICs. The output voltage is pre-bias safe and can be adjusted down to 0.7 V to address all low-voltage power needs.
The MIC22405 offers a full range of sequencing and tracking options. The Enable/Delay (EN/DLY) pin, combined with the Power Good (PG) pin, allows multiple outputs to be sequenced in any way during turn-on and turn-off. The Ramp Control™ (RC) pin allows the device to be connected to another product in the MIC22xxx and/or MIC68xxx family, to keep the output voltages within a certain ∆V on start-up.
