The MIC5060 MOSFET driver is designed for gate control of N-channel, enhancement-mode, and power MOSFETs used as high-side or low-side switches. The MIC5060 can sustain an on-state output indefinitely. The MIC5060 features an internal charge pump that can sustain a gate voltage greater than the available supply voltage. The driver is capable of turning on a logic-level MOSFET from a 2.75V supply or a standard MOSFET from a 5V supply. The gate-to-source output voltage is internally limited to approximately 15V. The MIC5060 is protected against automotive load dump, reversed battery, and inductive load spikes of –20V.
