Analog Devices Inc. ADP1071 Isolated Flyback Controllers

Analog Devices Inc. ADP1071 Isolated Synchronous Flyback Controllers with integrated iCouplers® are Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) current mode fixed frequency controllers designed for isolated dc-to-dc power supplies. These controllers come in ADP1071-1 and ADP1071-2 variants. The proprietary iCouplers® are integrated into the ADP1071-1/ADP1071-2 to eliminate the bulky signal transformers and optocouplers that transmit signals over the isolation boundary. This integration improves overall system reliability and reduces system design complexity, cost, and component count.

The isolated flyback controllers output regulation is achieved by sensing the output voltage on the secondary side. Whereas the feedback and the PWM signals are transmitted between the primary and secondary sides through the iCouplers. These ADP1071-1/ADP1071-2 controllers feature input current protection, OVP, UVLO, precision enable with adjustable hysteresis, OTP, and power-saving Light Load Mode (LLM). The isolated flyback controllers are available in a 16-lead SOIC_W package with an isolation voltage rating of 5kVrms and 24 terminal LGA package.  

The ADP1071-1 targets high input voltage applications in which the dc input voltage can exceed 60V.

The ADP1071-2 is designed for isolated dc-to-dc applications typically with input voltage less than 36V.
