General Description
The MIC4685 is a high-efficiency 200kHz stepdown (buck)
switching regulator. Power conversion efficiency of above
85% is easily obtainable for a wide variety of applications.
The MIC4685 achieves 3A of continuous current in the
7-pin SPAK package.
The thermal performance of the SPAK allows it to replace
2
TO-220s and TO-263s (D
PAKs) in many applications.
The SPAK saves board space with a 36% smaller footprint
than TO-263.
High-efficiency is maintained over a wide output current
range by utilizing a boost capacitor to increase the voltage
available to saturate the internal power switch. As a result
of this high-efficiency, only the ground plane of the PCB is
needed for a heat sink.
The MIC4685 allows for a high degree of safety. It has a
wide input voltage range of 4V to 30V (34V transient),
allowing it to be used in applications where input voltage
transients may be present. Built-in safety features include
over-current protection, frequency-foldback short-circuit
protection, and thermal shutdown.
The MIC4685 is available in a 7-pin SPAK package with a
junction temperature range of –40°C to +125°C.
