The controller circuit of the device is based on an average current mode topology. The controller also uses input and output voltage feedforward. Changes of input and output voltage are monitored and immediately can change the duty cycle in the modulator to achieve a fast response to those errors. The voltage error amplifier gets its feedback input from the FB pin. A resistive voltage divider must be connected to that pin. The feedback voltage will be compared with the internal reference voltage to generate a stable and accurate output voltage.
The device uses 4 internal N-channel MOSFETs to maintain synchronous power conversion at all possible operating conditions. This enables the device to keep high efficiency over a wide input voltage and output power range. Due to the 4-switch topology, the load is always disconnected from the input during shutdown of the converter. To protect the device from overheating an internal temperature sensor is implemented.
