MAXREFDES1169: ±15V/75mA and ±7.5V/75mA, Iso-Buck DC-DC Converter Using the MAX17681A

MAXREFDES1169

Reference Design Disclaimer See the  Important Notice and Disclaimer  covering reference designs and other Maxim resources.

Description

The MAX17681/MAX17681A is a high-voltage, high-efficiency, iso-buck DC-DC converter designed to provide isolated power up to 5W. The device operates over a wide 4.5V to 42V input and uses primary-side feedback to regulate the output voltage. The MAX17681/MAX17681A uses peak-current-mode control. Low-resistance, on-chip MOSFETs ensure high efficiency at full load while simplifying the PCB layout. The MAX17681/MAX17681A devices generate a well-regulated primary side voltage, which is then scaled by a suitable transformer turns ratio to derive isolated secondary output rails. While both the MAX17681 and MAX17681A support primary side overcurrent protection, the MAX17681A is an enhanced design that also supports robust secondary-side overcurrent protection. The MAX17681/MAX17681A is available in a compact 10-pin (3mm × 2mm) TDFN package. Simulation models are available.
