Flyback Controller in ThinSOT Operates at 150°C
With adjustable slope compensation, an LTC3803H-based power supply achieves fast transient response with minimum output capacitance. The constant 200kHz operating frequency is maintained down to very light loads, resulting in less low frequency noise generation over a wide range of load currents. An integrated soft-start function reduces inrush current, reducing output voltage overshoot. The LTC3803H can be powered with inputs from 9V to 75V through a series resistor clamped with the IC's internal shunt regulator, making it ideal for 4:1 input range applications. The 100mV current sense threshold enables the use of a very small current sense resistor even at high power levels, ensuring high efficiency.
The H-Grade version is production tested and guaranteed over an operating junction temperature range from -40°C to 150°C, making it ideal in wide temperature range applications. The E- and I-Grade versions are specified for 85°C and 125°C maximum junction temperature, respectively. Pricing starts at $1.63 each in 1,000-piece quantities.
