Description

The PMP8973 reference design generates a 3.3V/15A output from an 18V to 60V telecom input. The UCC2897A controls an active clamp forward converter power stage. The low gate charge and low RDSon of the CSD16415Q5 and CSD18502Q5B, implemented as synchronous rectifiers, provides for a highly efficient design. This design is laid out in a standard eighth brick footprint and achieves peak efficiencies over 92%.  It includes remote sensing of the output voltage.

Features
  • Peak efficiency > 92%
  • Remote sensing of output voltage
  • Wide 18V-60Vdc input range
  • Compatible with standard 1/8 (eight) brick footprint
  • Test report available
