New Digitally Enhanced Power Analog Controllers from Microchip Offer Digital Power Supply Flexibility with Easy Analog Control Loops
October 22, 2014
 Microchip Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MCHP), a leading provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions, has announced its latest Digitally Enhanced Power Analog (DEPA) controllers- the MCP19118 < http://www.microchip.com/get/AT61> and MCP19119 < http://www.microchip.com/get/KDCW> (MCP19118/9). They provide simple yet effective analog PWM control for DC-DC synchronous buck converters up to 40V, with the configurability of a digital MCU. And they are the industry's first devices to combine 40V operation and PMBus(TM) communication interfaces. These features enable quick power-conversion circuit development with an analog control loop that is programmable in the integrated 8-bit PIC® MCU core's firmware. This integration and flexibility is ideal for power-conversion applications, such as battery-charging, LED-driving, USB Power Delivery, point-of-load and automotive power supplies.
