MILPITAS, CA --- Linear Technology Corporation announces the LT8304, a monolithic flyback regulator that significantly simplifies the design of isolated DC/DC converters. By sampling the isolated output voltage directly from the primary-side flyback waveform, the part requires no opto-isolator or third winding for regulation. The LT8304 operates over a 3V to 100V input voltage range, has a 2A/150V integrated DMOS power switch and delivers up to 24 watts of output power, making it well suited for a wide variety of telecom, datacom, automotive, industrial, medical and military applications.
The LT8304 operates in boundary mode, which is a variable frequency current mode control switching scheme, typically resulting in ±5% output voltage regulation over the full line, load and temperature range. Boundary mode enables the use of a smaller transformer compared to equivalent continuous conduction-mode designs. The output voltage is easily set by two external resistors and the transformer turns ratio. Several off-the-shelf transformers, identified in the data sheet, can be used for numerous applications. The high level of integration and the use of low ripple Burst Mode® operation result in a simple to use, low component count and high efficiency solution for isolated power delivery.
Additional features include output short-circuit protection, 116µA no load operating quiescent current, accurate enable and undervoltage lockout with hysteresis, internal soft start and loop compensation, along with output diode temperature compensation.
