Current-Mode PWM Controllers with Programmable Switching Frequency
Isolated/Nonisolated Current-Mode PWM Controllers in Tiny 10-Pin µMAX Packages with Adjustable Frequency from 12.5kHz to 625kHz
DescriptionThe MAX15000/MAX15001 current-mode PWM controllers contain all the control circuitry required for the design of wide-input-voltage isolated and nonisolated power supplies. The MAX15000 is well suited for universal input (rectified 85VAC to 265VAC) or telecom (-36VDC to -72VDC) power supplies. The MAX15001 is well suited for low input voltage (9.5VDC to 24VDC) power supplies.
The MAX15000/MAX15001 contain an internal error amplifier that regulates the tertiary winding output voltage which is used in primary-side regulated isolated power supplies. Primary-side regulation eliminates the need for an optocoupler. An input undervoltage lockout (UVLO) is provided for programming the input-supply start voltage and to ensure proper operation during brownout conditions. An open-drain UVLO flag output, with 210µs internal delay, allows the sequencing of a secondary-side controller. The input-supply start voltage is externally programmable with a voltage divider. A UVLO/EN input is used to shutdown the MAX15000/MAX15001. Internal digital soft-start eliminates output voltage overshoot.
The MAX15000 has an internal bootstrap UVLO with large hysteresis that requires a minimum 23.6V for startup. The MAX15001 does not have the internal bootstrap UVLO and can be biased directly from a minimum voltage of 9.5V.
The switching frequency for the MAX15000/MAX15001 is programmable with an external resistor. The MAX15000A/MAX15001A provide a 50% maximum duty-cycle limit, while the MAX15000B/MAX15001B provide a 75% maximum duty-cycle limit. These devices are available in 10-pin µMAX® packages and are rated for operation over the -40°C to +85°C temperature range.
