Current Mode PWM Controller

Current Mode PWM Controller - UC3842A
Datasheet
 

Description

The UCx84xA family of control devices is a pin-for-pin compatible improved version of the UCx84x family. Providing the necessary features to control current-mode or switched-mode power supplies, this family of devices has many improved features: startup current is less than 0.5 mA, oscillator discharge is trimmed to 8.3 mA, and during UVLO, the output stage can sink at least 10 mA at less than 1.2 V for VCC over 5 V.

Features

  • Optimized for Off-Line and DC-DC Converters
  • Low Start-Up Current (< 0.5 mA)
  • Trimmed Oscillator Discharge Current
  • Automatic Feedforward Compensation
  • Pulse-by-Pulse Current Limiting
  • Enhanced Load Response Characteristics
  • Undervoltage Lockout With Hysteresis
  • Double Pulse Suppression
  • High-Current Totem Pole Output
  • Internally-Trimmed Bandgap Reference
  • Up to 500-kHz Operation
  • Create a Custom Design Using the UCx84xA With the WEBENCH® Power Designer
