MOSFET drivers offer peak output currents up to 4.5A

Microchip has added to its existing portfolio of 4.5A, low side mosfet drivers with the addition of the MCP14E6/7/8 and MCP14E9/10/11 devices. Offering peak output currents of 2 and 3A respectively, the devices support the integration of more features with reduced power consumption, size and cost.

All of the modules have an operating voltage range of 4.5 to 18V and feature enable input pins to provide a shutdown capability for conserving power. They are offered in 8pin SOIC and 8pin, 6 x 5mm DFN packages to reduce the board space required to drive power supplies in consumer electronic applications such as servers, personal computers and notebooks.
