How Can Analog DC-DC Controllers Solve Your Design Challenges?

  • Optimizing power supplies for rugged and extreme operating conditions
  • Applications requiring high input power and various levels of output power
  • Applications requiring wide input voltage ranges
  • Powering portable applications requiring extended battery life and low self-consumption during standby

Buck Controllers

Our selection of synchronous and asynchronous buck controllers offers a wide input voltage range up to 75V. This versatile family of products with ultra-low standby quiescent current increases light-load efficiency and extends battery life in portable and battery-operated applications.

  • Synchronous and asynchronous buck controllers
  • Wide input voltage ranges up to 75V

Boost Controllers

We offer a broad line of high-performance, step-up boost controller ICs with both synchronous and nonsynchronous switches. Some key features include a wide input voltage range, high switching frequency, high-efficiency operation and low quiescent current. This combination allows for very small, low-profile boost switching regulation circuit implementations with minimum external components.

  • Supports alternative topologies such as SEPIC or flyback

Flyback/Forward/Push-Pull Controllers

Flyback controllers, forward controllers and push-pull controllers provide simple and cost-effective replacements to support both offline or DC/DC conversion for systems needing galvanic isolation in various flyback, SEPIC, Ćuk, half-bridge or full-bridge switching power configurations.

  • Supports both offline or DC/DC conversion for systems needing galvanic isolation
The Microchip Difference

Microchip provides a rapidly expanding portfolio of analog controller products serving the mobile device, portable computer, telecommunications and industrial markets.  By combining advanced IC process, packaging technology and system design optimization, our products offer wide-input-voltage-ranges, high-efficiency, small-form-factor, fast transient response, low ripple, low noise, low Iq, and low EMI.

These products are easy to use via PMBus™ or an I2C interface for many telemetry and control features, such as current limits, temperature, output current, output voltage, switching frequency, power good, soft start and more.
