MIC2155/6 Buck Control IC

Micrel's 2-Phase, Single Output, PWM Synchronous Buck Control IC

Click to Enlarge - MIC2155 Diagram Micrel, Inc.'s MIC2155 and MIC2156 are a family of 2-phase, single output synchronous buck control ICs featuring small size, high efficiency, and a high level of flexibility. The ICs implement a 500kHz (MIC2155) and 300kHz (MIC2156) voltage mode PWM control, with the outputs switching 180° out of phase. The result of the out-of-phase operation is 1MHz (or 600kHz) input ripple with ripple current cancellation, minimizing the required input filter capacitance. A 1% output voltage tolerance allows the maximum level of system performance. Internal drivers with adaptive gate drive allow the highest efficiency with the minimum external components.
