This controller offers many features to build an energy efficient converter with all the needed protections like cycle−by−cycle current limit with a 500−mV sense voltage, over temperature protection with a dedicated NTC pin and brown−out feature. In addition to the low side MSOFET drive, the controller integrates also a high−side section to drive the floating N−channel power MOSFET. Dedicated pins are available to adjust the switching frequency (RT pin – pin 6) or the soft−start duration (SS pin – pin 7).
Finally, a high−voltage current source with Dynamic−Self Supply (DSS) is embedded to quickly start the power supply and maintain the Vcc voltage in light load or standby. The primary−side section drives a transformer whose primary inductance is 3 mH. The energy accumulated in this inductance is sending back to the bulk capacitor thanks to the freewheel components. One of the classical freewheel diode has been replaced by a MOSFET Q3 driven by the controller in order to refresh the bootstrap capacitor. The current is sensed via a 83−m resistance. The switching frequency of 100 kHz and the soft−start duration are set by two individual components (R8 for fSW and C5 for SS).
