Description

This reference design generates a 12V/21A output from 54V DC input. The UCC2897A controls an active clamp forward converter power stage. The low gate charge and low RDSon of the CSD18532Q5B, implemented as self-driven synchronous rectifiers, allow this design to achieve a max load efficiency of nearly 96%.  The compact UCC27511 drivers simplify the gate drive circuitry for the synchronous rectifiers.

Features
  • Over 95% efficiency at max load
  • 89% efficiency at 10% load
  • Low output ripple
  • Self-driven synchronous rectifiers (using CSD18532Q5B MOSFETs) reduce drive complexity
  • Generates regulated 12V bus for telecom or server applications
  • Low profile, less than 14mm max component height
