SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/30/12 -- Micrel, Inc.
(NASDAQ: MCRL), an industry leader in high performance analog
and high-speed mixed signal solutions, LAN and timing and
communications solutions, today announced two new AEC-Q100
qualified, high-performance linear regulators. The
MAQ5281/82 family offers a very wide input operation
voltage range, up to 120V DC, and supplies an output current
of up to 25mA or 50mA. These devices are ideal for the harsh
environments often encountered in automotive and industrial
MAQ5281/82 are currently available in volume, and pricing
starts at $1.00/$1.05 for 1K quantity. Samples can be ordered
"Voltage regulators for both the automotive and
industrial environments must be able to withstand large input
overvoltage transient (load dump) occurrences," noted
Brian Hedayati, marketing vice president for the analog
division at Micrel. "Micrel's new
MAQ5281/82 are automotive-qualified and feature both a
wide input voltage range of 6 to 120V DC and ultra-low
quiescent current of 6µA typical, making these solutions
ideal for automotive and rugged telecom applications."
The devices feature 25mA/50mA guaranteed out current and an
adjustable output from 1.27V to 5.5V. They can withstand up
to 120V DC at input and feature ultra-high PSRR of > 90dB.
Other features include a high output accuracy of + 3 percent
accuracy, thermal shutdown and current limit protection. The
devices come in a thermally efficient, 8-pin ePad MSOP
