Microchip expands MOSFET driver family

Untitled - 33.jpgMicrochip Technology Inc has announced the expansion of its MOSFET driver family of products. Building upon the success of Microchip's low-side MCP14E3/4/5 4.5A MOSFET drivers, Microchip is introducing the new low-side MCP14E6/7/8 2A and MCP14E9/10/11 3A drivers. The expanded, low-cost family of devices is rated for peak output currents from 2A to 4.5A, over a wide operating voltage range of 4.5V to 18V. The devices feature enable input pins that provide shutdown capability to conserve power, and are offered in 8-pin SOIC and 8-pin, 6mm x 5mm DFN packages. They are ideal for consumer electronic applications that use power supplies, such as servers, personal computers and notebooks.

Today's engineers require lower power, more features and smaller packages at a low cost, and Microchip's expanded family of MOSFET drivers meets those needs. The new MCP14E6/7/8 dual devices are rated for a peak output current of 2A, while the new MCP14E9/10/11 dual devices are rated for a peak output current of 3A. The drivers' wide operating voltage of 4.5V to 18V allows for a broad range of input voltages. Additionally, the drivers' small packages lower costs by reducing board space.

Packaging & Purchase: The MCP14E3/4/5, MCP14E6/7/8 and MCP14E9/10/11 MOSFET drivers are available in an 8-pin SOIC package. The devices are also available in an 8-pin 6mm x 5mm DFN package.
