Description

Maxim's Rainier family of isolated power devices enable cooler, smaller, and simpler power-supply solutions. The MAX17693A/B are high efficiency No-Opto integrated nMOSFET flyback converters that use fixed frequency peak current mode control. The device senses the isolated output voltage directly from the primary-side flyback waveform during the secondary-side rectifier conduction. No secondary-side error amplifier and optocoupler are required to provide an accurate, isolated, regulated output voltage, saving up to 20% of PCB space normally required for a traditional flyback converter.

The MAX17693A/B feature a low RDSON, 76V, 245mΩ integrated nMOSFET primary switch and are designed to operate over a wide supply range from 4.2V to 60V. The switching frequency of the device is programmable from 100kHz to 350kHz. An EN/UVLO feature allows the user to turn ON/OFF the power converter precisely at the desired input voltage. Input overvoltage protection can be implemented using the OVI pin (MAX17693A only). Soft-start limits inrush current at startup. The MAX17693A/B support external clock synchronization to avoid low-frequency “beats” on the input bus in systems with multiple converters. The devices also have programmable frequency dithering for low-EMI, spread-spectrum operation.

The MAX17693A/B allow temperature compensation for variations in the output rectifier diode forward voltage drop. The MAX17693A is internally compensated for loop stability, while the MAX17693B offers external loop compensation flexibility. The MAX17693A/B have robust hiccup-protection and thermal protection schemes, and are available in space-saving 12-pin, 3mm x 3mm TDFN packages with a temperature range from -40°C to +125°C.
