Solid-state power switch
A Valley Switching Converter generally shows lower EMI and higher power conversion efficiency than a conventional hard-switched converter with a fixed switching frequency. The FSQ-series is an integrated Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) controller and SenseFET specifically designed for valley switching operation with minimal external components. The PWM controller includes an integrated fixed-frequency oscillator, Under-Voltage Lockout, Leading Edge Blanking (LEB), optimized gate driver, internal soft-start, temperature-compensated precise current sources for loop compensation, and self-protection circuitry.
Compared with discrete MOSFET and PWM controller solutions, the FSQ-series reduces total cost, component count, size and weight; while simultaneously increasing efficiency, productivity, and system reliability. This device provides a basic platform that is well suited for cost-effective designs of valley switching fly-back converters.
