Description for the UCC38C40

The UCCx8C4x family are high-performance, current-mode PWM controllers. The UCCx8C4x is an enhanced BiCMOS version with pin-for-pin compatibility to the industry standard UCx84xA family and UCx84x family of PWM controllers. The BiCMOS technology offers lower power consumption to improve efficiency as well as faster current sense and oscillator frequency.

In addition, lower startup voltage versions of 7 V are offered as UCCx8C40 and UCCx8C41 for use in battery systems. The UCC28C4x series is specified for operation from –40°C to 125°C, and the UCC38C4x series is specified for operation from 0°C to 85°C.

Providing necessary features to control fixed frequency, peak current-mode power supplies, this family offers the following performance advantages. The device offers high-frequency operation up to 1 MHz, suitable for high speed applications. The trimmed discharge current enables more precise programming of the maximum duty cycle and dead-time limit when compared to the UCCx8C4x family. Reduced start-up and operating currents minimizes start-up loss and low operating power consumption for improved efficiency. The device also features a fast current-sense-to-output delay time of 35 ns for superior overload protection at the power switch, and a ±1-A peak output current capability with improved rise and fall times for driving large external MOSFETs directly.

The UCCx8C4x family is offered in 8-pin VSSOP (DGK) and 8-pin SOIC (D) packages.

Carrier options

You can choose different carrier options based on the quantity of parts, including full reel, custom reel, cut tape, tube or tray.

A custom reel is a continuous length of cut tape from one reel to maintain lot- and date-code traceability, built to the exact quantity requested. Following industry standards, a brass shim connects an 18-inch leader and trailer on both sides of the cut tape for direct feeding into automated assembly machines. TI includes a reeling fee for custom reel orders.

Cut tape is a length of tape cut from a reel. TI may fulfill orders using multiple strips of cut tapes or boxes to satisfy the quantity requested.

TI often ships tube or tray devices inside a box or in the tube or tray, depending on inventory availability. We pack all tapes, tubes or sample boxes according to internal electrostatic discharge and moisture-sensitivity-level protection requirements.
