The LinkSwitch-3 family of ICs dramatically simplifies low power CV/CC charger designs by eliminating an optocoupler and secondary control circuitry. The device introduces a revolutionary control technique to provide very accurate output voltage and current regulation, compensating for transformer and internal parameter tolerances along with input voltage variations.
The device incorporates a 725 V power MOSFET, a novel ON/OFF control state machine, a high-voltage switched current source for self biasing, frequency jittering, cycle-by-cycle current limit and hysteretic thermal shutdown circuitry onto a monolithic IC.
Dramatically Simplifies CV/CC Converters
- Eliminates optocoupler and all secondary CV/CC control circuitry
- Eliminates all control loop compensation circuitry
Advanced Performance Features
- Compensates for transformer inductance tolerances, input line voltage variations, and cable voltage drop
- Very tight IC parameter tolerances using proprietary trimming technology
- Frequency jittering greatly reduces EMI filter cost
- Programmable switching frequency up to 85 kHz to reduce transformer size
- Minimum operation frequency fixed to improve transient load response
