Control IC. MIC2196 Datasheet
400kHz SO-8 Boost Control IC
Micrel’s MIC2196 is a high efficiency PWM boost control
IC housed in a SO-8 package. The MIC2196 is optimized
for low input voltage applications. With its wide input
voltage range of 2.9V to 14V, the MIC2196 can be used to
efficiently boost voltages in 3.3V, 5V, and 12V systems, as
well as 1- or 2-cell Li Ion battery powered applications. Its
powerful 2Ω output driver allows the MIC2196 to drive
large external MOSFETs.
The MIC2196 is ideal for space-sensitive applications. The
device is housed in the space-saving SO-8 package,
whose low pin-count minimizes external components. Its
400kHz PWM operation allows a small inductor and small
output capacitors to be used. The MIC2196 can implement
all ceramic capacitor solutions.
Efficiencies over 90% are achievable over a wide range of
load conditions with the MIC2196’s PWM boost control
scheme. Its fixed frequency PWM architecture also makes
the MIC2196 is ideal for noise-sensitive
MIC2196 features a low current shutdown mode of 1μA
and programmable undervoltage lockout.
The MIC2196 is available in an 8-pin SOIC package with a
junction temperature range from –40°C to +125°C.

Compensation (Output): Internal error amplifier output. Connect to a capacitor or
series RC network to compensate the regulator’s control loop.
Feedback (Input): Regulates FB to 1.245V.
Enable/Undervoltage Lockout (input): A low level on this pin will power down the
device, reducing the quiescent current to under 0.5μA. This pin has two separate
thresholds, below 1.5V the output switching is disabled, and below 0.9V the device is
forced into a complete micropower shutdown. The 1.5V threshold functions as an
accurate undervoltage lockout (UVLO) with 100mV hysteresis.
The (+) input to the current limit comparator. A built in offset of 100mV between CS
and GND in conjunction with the current sense resistor sets the current limit threshold
level. This is also the (+) input to the current amplifier.
3V internal linear-regulator output. VDD is also the supply voltage bus for the chip.
Bypass to GND with 1μF.
High current drive for N-Channel MOSFET. Voltage swing is from ground to VIN.
RON is typically 3Ω @ 5VIN.
Input voltage to the control IC. This pin also supplies power to the gate drive circuit.
