Adaptive On-Time DC-DC Controller
Featuring HyperLight Load®
Hyper Speed Control™ Family
The Micrel MIC2165 is a synchronous adaptive on-time
buck controller targeting high-performance, cost-sensitive
applications such as set-top boxes, gateways, routers,
computing peripherals, and telecom/networking
The MIC2165 operates over a supply range of 4.5V to
28V. It has an internal linear regulator which provides a
regulated 5V supply to power the internal control circuitry.
MIC2165 operates at a constant 600kHz switching
frequency and can be used to drive up to 25A of output
current. The output voltage is adjustable from 0.8V to
A unique Hyper Speed Control™ architecture enables
ultra-fast transient response while reducing the output
capacitance and also makes High VIN/Low VOUT operation
A UVLO feature is provided to ensure proper operation
under power-sag conditions to prevent the external power
MOSFET from over heating. Also, a soft start feature is
provided to reduce the inrush current. Short current
sensing on the bottom MOSFET with hiccup mode current
limiting ensures protection in case of an output short
circuit. Further, the MIC2165 includes an EN pin to shut
down the converter and a Power Good (PGOOD) pin to
allow simple sequencing.
The MIC2165 is available in a 10-pin MSOP ePad
package with a junction operating temperature ranging
from –40°C to +125°C. All support documentation can be
found on Micrel’s web site at: www.micrel.com.

10-Pin ePad MSOP (MME)
Feedback (Input): Input to the transconductance amplifier of the control loop. The FB pin is regulated to
0.8V. A resistor divider connecting the output to FB is used to set the desired output voltage.
Power Good (Output): Open Drain Output. The PGOOD pin is externally tied with a resistor to VDD.
High output when VOUT>90% nominal.
Enable (Input): A logic level control of the output. The EN pin is CMOS-compatible. Logic high = enable,
logic low = shutdown. In the off state, supply current of the device is greatly reduced (typically 5µA). The
EN pin should not be left open. Connect to VIN if sequencing not required.
Supply Voltage: Input voltage for the internal +5V linear regulator. The VIN operating voltage range is
from 4.5V to 28V. A 0.1µF capacitor between VIN and the ground is required.
5V Internal Linear Regulator (Output): VDD is the external MOSFET gate drive supply voltage and an
internal supply bus for the IC. VDD is created by internal LDO from VIN. When VIN <+5.5V, VDD Should
be tied to VIN. A 2.2µF (minimum) ceramic capacitor from VDD to GND is recommended for clean
Low-Side Gate Drive (Output): High-current driver output for external low-side MOSFET. The DL driving
voltage swings from ground to VDD.
Power Ground. PGND is the ground path for the MIC2165 buck converter power stage. The PGND pin
connects to the sources of low-side N-Channel MOSFETs, the negative terminals of input capacitors,
and the negative terminals of output capacitors. The loop for the power ground should be as small as
possible and separate from the Signal ground (GND) loop.
High-Side Gate Drive (Output): High-current driver output for external high-side MOSFET. The DH
driving voltage is floating on the switch node voltage (SW). It swings from ground-to-VDD minus the
Switch Node (Input): High current output driver return. The SW pin connects directly to the switch node.
Due to the high speed switching on this pin, the SW pin should be routed away from sensitive nodes.
Current-Sense Input (Input): SW pin also senses the current by monitoring the voltage across the low-
side MOSFET during OFF-time. The current sensing is necessary for short circuit protection and zero
current cross comparator. In order to sense the current accurately, connect the low-side MOSFET drain
to SW using a Kelvin connection.
Boost (Output): Bootstrapped voltage to the high-side N-channel MOSFET driver. A Schottky diode is
connected between the VDD pin and the BST pin. A boost capacitor of 0.1μF is connected between the
BST pin and the SW pin. Adding a small resistor at BST pin can slow down the turn-on time of high-side
Thermal Pad and Signal ground. GND is the ground path for VDD and the control circuitry. The loop for
the signal ground should be separate from the power ground (PGND) loop.
