Microchip Technology introduced the MCP1623 and MCP1624 (MCP1623/4) Synchronous Boost Regulators. The MCP1623 and MCP1624 regulators enable designers to reduce the size and number of batteries without increasing costs. The MCP1623/4 regulators can be utilized with any PIC microcontroller for < 0.7V VDD operation. The MCP1623/4 Synchronous Boost Regulators are available in a 6-pin, SOT-23 package, for less than $0.20 each, in volume. Samples are available today. Volume-production quantity orders can be placed now.
