The UC3844B, UC3845B series are high performance fixed frequency current mode controllers. They are specifically designed for Off−Line and dc−dc converter applications offering the designer a cost−effective solution with minimal external components. These integrated circuits feature an oscillator, a temperature compensated reference, high gain error amplifier, current sensing comparator, and a high current totem pole output ideally suited for driving a power MOSFET.
Also included are protective features consisting of input and reference undervoltage lockouts each with hysteresis, cycle−by−cycle current limiting, a latch for single pulse metering, and a flip−flop which blanks the output off every other oscillator cycle, allowing output deadtimes to be programmed from 50% to 70%.
These devices are available in an 8−pin dual−in−line and surface mount (SOIC−8) plastic package as well as the 14−pin plastic surface mount (SOIC−14). The SOIC−14 package has separate power and ground pins for the totem pole output stage.
The UCX844B has UVLO thresholds of 16 V (on) and 10 V (off), ideally suited for off−line converters. The UCX845B is tailored for lower voltage applications having UVLO thresholds of 8.5 V (on) and 7.6 V (off).
