CHANDLER, Ariz., April 28, 2014 [NASDAQ:  MCHP] — Microchip Technology Inc., a leading provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions, today announced an expansion of its Digitally Enhanced Power Analog 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 analog-based controller, with the flexibility approaching a fully-digital power conversion solution.  These new analog 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-analog control solutions offer the speed and responsiveness expected of a high-performance analog control loop; the flexibility expected of a digital MCU; operate across wide operating voltage ranges; support conventional 5, 12, and 24 V rails; and meet automotive load dump requirements.  The MCP19114/19115 analog-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.

Development Support


Microchip’s MCP19114 Flyback Standalone Evaluation Board (part # ADM00578, $49.99), also announced today, is 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 support the MCP19114 and MCP19115 power controllers, including the MPLAB® X Integrated Development Environment (IDE), PICkit™ 3 (part # PG164130, $44.95), PICkit Serial Analyzer (part #DV164122, $49.99), and the MPLAB XC8 Compiler.    

Pricing & Availability

The MCP19114 is available now for sampling and volume production in 24-lead QFN 4 mm x 4 mm packages, for $2.61 each, in 10,000-unit quantities.  The MCP19115 is available now for sampling and volume production in 24-lead QFN 5 mm x 5 mm packages, for $2.78 each, in 10,000-unit quantities.
