Application Information
Component Selection
Inductor
The value of inductance is determined by the peak-to-
peak inductor current. Higher values of inductance
reduce the inductor current ripple at the expense of a
larger inductor. Smaller inductance values allow faster
response to output current transients but increase the
output
ripple
voltage
and
require
more
output
capacitance.
The inductor value and saturation current are also
controlled by the method of overcurrent limit used (see
explanation in the previous section). The minimum value
of
inductance
for
the
MIC24420/MIC24421
is
10µH/22µH.
The peak-to-peak ripple current may be calculated using
the formula below.

Where:
IPP is the peak-to-peak inductor ripple current
L is the value of inductance
fS is the switching frequency of the regulator
η is the efficiency of the power supply
Efficiency values from the Functional Characteristics
section can be use for these calculations.
The peak inductor current in each channel is equal to the
average output current plus one half of the peak to peak
inductor ripple current.
The RMS inductor current is used to calculate the I

losses in the inductor.

Maximizing efficiency requires the proper selection of
core material and minimizing the winding resistance. The
high frequency operation of the MIC24420/MIC24421
requires the use of ferrite materials. Lower cost iron
powder cores may be used but the increase in core loss
will reduce the efficiency of the power supply. This is
especially noticeable at low output power. The inductor
winding resistance decreases efficiency at the higher
output current levels. The winding resistance must be
minimized although this usually comes at the expense of
a larger inductor.
The power dissipated in the inductor equals the sum of
the core and copper losses. Core loss information is
usually available from the magnetics vendor.
Input Capacitor
A 10μF ceramic is suggested on each of the VIN pins for
bypassing. X5R or X7R dielectrics are recommended for
the input capacitor. Y5V dielectrics should not be used.
Besides
losing
most
of
their
capacitance
over
temperature, they also become resistive at high
frequencies, which reduce their ability to filter out high
frequency noise.
Output Capacitor
The MIC24420/MIC24421 regulator is designed for
ceramic output capacitors although tantalum and
Aluminum Electrolytic may also be used.
Output ripple voltage is determined by the magnitude of
inductor current ripple, the output capacitor’s ESR and
the value of output capacitance. When using ceramic
output capacitors, the primary contributor to output ripple
is the value of capacitance. Output ripple using ceramic
capacitors may be calculated using the equation below:

Where:
ΔVOUT is the peak-to-peak output voltage ripple

capacitors
fS is the switching frequency (1MHz nominal).
When
using
tantalum
or
aluminum
electrolytic
capacitors, both the capacitance and ESR contribute to
output ripple. The total ripple is calculated below:

Soft start capacitor considerations:
Where a large amount of capacitance is present at the
output of the regulator, a fast rising output voltage can,
in extreme circumstances (since I=Cdv/dt), cause
current limit to operate and prevent startup. In order to
avoid this situation, the following equation can be used
to ensure tR (output rise time) is set correctly.
