CHANDLER, Ariz. -- January 28, 2013

Microchip Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MCHP), a leading provider of
microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions, today announced
its MCP19111, the world’s first Digitally Enhanced Power Analog controller,
which expands Microchip’s diverse range of intelligent DC/DC power-conversion
solutions. Microchip also announced the expansion of its high-speed MOSFET
family, with the new MCP87018, MCP87030, MCP87090 and MCP87130. These are
25V-rated, 1.8 mΩ, 3 mΩ, 9 mΩ and 13 mΩ logic-level MOSFETs that are optimized
specifically for Switched-Mode-Power-Supply (SMPS) applications. The MCP19111
Digitally Enhanced Power Analog controller, a new hybrid, digital and analog
power-management device, in combination with the expanded MCP87XXX family of
low-Figure-of-Merit (FOM) MOSFETs, supports configurable, high-efficiency
DC/DC power-conversion designs for a broad array of consumer and industrial
applications.

The MCP19111 Digitally Enhanced Power Analog family operates across a wide
voltage range of 4.5 to 32V and offers a significant increase in flexibility
over conventional analog-based solutions. In fact, the MCP19111 offers the
world’s first hybrid, mixed-signal power-management controller, integrating an
analog-based PWM controller with a fully functional Flash-based
microcontroller. This integration offers the flexibility of a digital
solution, with the speed, performance and resolution of an analog-based
controller. The MCP19111 devices support operation up to 32V, and have
integrated MOSFET drivers configured for synchronous, step-down applications.
When combined with Microchip’s expanded family of high-speed MOSFETs, the
MCP19111 drives customizable, high-efficiency power conversion.

“The MCP19111 family increases the capabilities of today’s high-efficiency,
analog-based power designs, enabling new levels of flexibility, optimization
and integration; all in a very small footprint,” said Bryan J. Liddiard,
marketing vice president of Microchip’s Analog & Interface Products Division.
“The broad operating range and integrated, mid-voltage synchronous drivers
support high-efficiency, power-dense conversion with fast, analog-based
control. When combined with Microchip’s newly expanded high-speed MOSFET
offerings, they form fast, efficient power-conversion solutions that yield
highly flexible, highly efficient power designs.”

Development Tool Support

The MCP19111 Evaluation Board (part #ADM00397, $49.99), which also includes
Microchip’s High-Speed MOSFETs, is available now. This evaluation board is
offered with standard firmware, which is user-configurable through an MPLAB^®
X IDE graphical user interface (GUI) plug-in. The combined evaluation board,
GUI and firmware allow power-supply designers to configure and evaluate the
performance of the MCP19111 for their target applications.

Pricing & Availability

Pricing starts at $2.81 each for the MCP19111 controller and $0.28 each for
the MCP87030/090/130/018 Power MOSFETs, in 5,000-unit quantities. All are
available now for sampling and volume production, except the MCP87018 with
expected availability in February. The MCP19111 controller is offered in a 5x5
mm, 28-pin QFN package. The MCP87030 and MCP87018 MOSFETs are offered in a 5x6
mm, 8-pin PDFN package. The MCP87090 and MCP87130 MOSFETs are offered in both
a 5x6 mm, 8-pin PDFN package, as well as a 3.3x3.3 mm, 8-pin PDFN package.
