SLUSBQ5D November 2013 – July 2016 UCC28180
Simple external networks allow for flexible compensation of the current and voltage control loops. In addition, UCC28180 offers an enhanced dynamic response circuit that is based on the voltage feedback signal to deliver improved response under fast load transients, both for output overvoltage and undervoltage conditions. An unique VCOMP discharge circuit provided in UCC28180 is activated whenever the voltage feedback signal exceeds VOVP_L thus allowing a chance for the control loop to stabilize quickly and avoid encountering the overvoltage protection function when PWM shutoff can often cause audible noise. Controlled soft start gradually regulates the input current during start-up and reduces stress on the power switches. Numerous system-level protection features available in the controller include VCC UVLO, peak current limit, soft overcurrent, output open-loop detection, output overvoltage protection and open-pin detection (VISNS). A trimmed internal reference provides accurate protection thresholds and regulation set-point. The user can control low-power standby mode by pulling the VSENSE pin below 0.82 V.
