Microchip expands portfolio of digitally-enhanced power analogue controllers with integrated MCU

Microchip announces an expansion of its Digitally Enhanced Power Analogue controller product line.  With the introduction of the MCP19114 and MCP19115 devices, Microchip’s diverse range of intelligent DC/DC power-conversion solutions grows to include controllers supporting flyback, boost and SEPIC topologies. 

These latest devices introduce a step-up PWM-controller and low-side MOSFET driver architecture, with a mid-voltage LDO and fully-functional microcontroller all integrated into a small, high-density power package.  This solution continues to offer the power conversion performance typical of an analogue-based controller, with the flexibility approaching that of a fully-digital power conversion solution.  These new analogue power-management devices, in combination with the fully-functional microcontroller (MCU), support configurable, high-efficiency power-conversion designs across a broad array of consumer and automotive applications and power conversion topologies.

The MCP19114 and MCP19115 hybrid digital-analogue control solutions offer the speed and responsiveness expected of a high-performance analogue control loop; the flexibility expected of a digital MCU; operate across wide operating voltage ranges; support conventional 5, 12, and 24V rails; and meet automotive load-dump requirements.  The MCP19114/19115 analogue-based controllers with digital interface, offer cost-efficient adjustability in a high-performance power conversion solution.  These devices support operation up to 42V, and have integrated MOSFET drivers configured for step-up applications.

Microchip also announces the MCP19114 Flyback Standalone Evaluation Board (ADM00578) priced at $49.99 and available now.  This evaluation board is offered with a flyback design supporting 0V to 50V output from an 8V to 14V input.  Microchip’s full suite of development tools supports the MCP19114 and MCP19115 power controllers, including the MPLAB® X Integrated Development Environment (IDE); the  PICkit™ 3 (PG164130) priced at $44.95; PICkit Serial Analyzer (DV164122) priced at $49.99, and the MPLAB XC8 Compiler.    

The MCP19114 is available now for sampling and volume production in a 24-lead QFN 4 mm x 4 mm package.  The MCP19115 is available now for sampling and volume production in a 24-lead QFN 5 mm x 5 mm package.
