Application Note: AN-303 INTEGRATED CIRCUITS DIVISION IX9908 Design Considerations (European Voltage Version) AN-303-R01 www.ixysic.com 1 AN-303 INTEGRATED CIRCUITS DIVISION 1 Introduction This application note provides general guidelines for designing an off-line LED driver using IXYS Integrated Circuits Division’s IX9908. The IX9908 can be configured to drive an external MOSFET device in a quasi-resonant flyback converter power stage that provides a constant current output to a LED string while maintaining a high power factor. Figure 1 This driver features a high voltage start-up circuit that eliminates the need for a VCC resistor, thereby improving overall power dissipation. In addition, there are multiple safety features such as under-voltage lockout, over-voltage protection, digital soft-start, foldback correction, and cycle-by-cycle peak current limiting. The IX9908 is an excellent choice for many phase-cut dimming and high power-factor correction LED lighting applications.

In this case, a 0.6A bridge would be sufficient. Primary Inductor Currents Calculation I pri_peak 2.8 V DS = V DC_bulk_max + V ro + V spike Assume that Vspike = 50V. V DS = 375V + 269V + 50V 694V Due to the voltage spikes resulting from leakage inductance, the MOSFET should be selected with an adequate margin. A good choice would be between 800V and 900V.

Input Capacitor, CIN Design RCD Snubber In a flyback topology, a snubber circuit is required to clamp the voltage caused by the leakage inductance, which is present in all transformers. Leakage inductance is highly dependent on the transformer construction, so care should be taken to keep it less than 2% of primary inductance. When no leakage inductance is known, a leakage inductance value of 90H (2% of 4.535mH) can be used as a starting point to calculate the snubber’s resistor, capacitor, and diode values. DSN is selected as 1N4007GP (1000V, 1A axial lead). Energy stored in the leakage inductance Le: 2 2 W1 = 0.5L e I rms = 0.5 90H 0.121 0.66J The IX9908 is designed to operate without the need of a large bulk capacitor. This operating method enables the input current to form a triangular shape that closely 4 www.ixysic.com R01 AN-303 INTEGRATED CIRCUITS DIVISION Average power transferred from W1 to the snubber: Figure 3 P1 = W1 f S = 0.66J 100kHz 66mW V max = V DC_bulk_max + V ro + V spike 1.05 V max = 375V + 269V + 50V = 694V 0.95 VCS vs. IZCV 1.00 0.90 VCS (V) • Vspike = 50V • Vro = 269V 0.85 0.80 0.75 Limiting the voltage to 694V. 0.70 V SN = 694V – 269V = 425V 0.65 2 2 V SN 425V - = ---------------- 2.7M R SN = ----------66mW P1 TS 10s C SN = --------- = ----------------- 3.7pF 2.7M R SN TS 1 1 - = ------------------------------------------ 3.7pF = ------------------C SN » --------100kHz 2.7M R SN f S R SN 0.60 200 For margin, CSN =1nF is selected. This value is a starting point, and might have to be adjusted to get the desired voltage spike suppression.

For NA/NP value, see 3.2 Determine Transformer Turns Ratio. R01 1800 The value of the current sense resistor (RCS) can be selected by using following equation: V DC_bulk_min N A = -----------------------------------------R ZCV1 N P 269V R ZCV1 = ------------------- 0.0696 18.7k 1000A 1000 1400 IZCV (µA) The over voltage detection can be programmed by RZCV2 resistor. The output, VLEDstring, is 40V, so select an over voltage protection of 50V, and from the datasheet, VZCVOVP = 3.7V 2.10 Over-Voltage Protection & Zero-Crossing Detection The application schematic in Figure 2 IX9908 Application Circuit shows that the voltage from the auxiliary winding is connected to the zero crossing pin (ZCV), via RC network resistor RZCV1, RZCV2 and CZCV. The circuit provides a delay so that switch-on can occur at the voltage valley, thus enhancing efficiency. The line voltage is sensed indirectly through the current in RZCV1. 600 The RIN1 and RIN2 resistor values can be selected to scale the input voltage at the VR pin. The RIN1 resistor is selected with consideration of losses and high power factor correction. In this example we select RIN1 = 2040k. Select two standard resistors, 1.00M and 1.04M, package size 1206. www.ixysic.com 5 AN-303 INTEGRATED CIRCUITS DIVISION See 2.4 Primary Inductor Currents Calculation. For adequate margin, select a 3Arms diode, such as STPS3150V. The RIN2 value can be calculated: R IN1 R CS G PWM I pri_peak R IN2 = -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------V DC_bulk_min – G PWM I pri_peak R CS RIN2 = 17.3k. Select the next standard value, 17.4k, where: PWM-Op gain, GPWM = 3 (from the IX9908 data sheet). Select the CVR capacitor to be 2.2nF and the DVR diode can be BAS16, 100V, or equivalent. The output capacitor can be selected based on the desired output voltage ripple. The dynamic resistance of the LED driven at a given current should also be considered, as this will determine the current ripple through the LED string. In this application, the LEDs have a dynamic resistance of 1 measured at 300mA operating current. 12 LEDs result in 12 of dynamic resistance. 2.12 Selection of VCC Capacitor and Auxiliary Blocking Diode In this application, a simple and inexpensive power supply for the IC is made from the auxiliary winding by using a blocking diode and a capacitor. V out_rip = I LED_max R dynamic V out_rip = 300mA 12 = 3.6V PP The output capacitor can be approximated: 2 I LED_max C out = -------------------------------------------------------V out_rip 2 100Hz The auxiliary VCC diode blocking voltage can be calculated: 2 300mA C out = -------------------------------------------------------- 265F 3.6V PP 2 100Hz NA V DVcc 2 V AC_max ------- + V aux_max N P V DVcc 375V 0.0696 + 18V 44V In this case, BAS16, 100V, or equivalent, would be selected. Select one 270F capacitor, EEV-FR1H271L. This capacitor is rated at 105°C for 10,000 hours with 100kHz frequency. For a dimming application a 22F capacitor would be required: if there is no dimming requirement, then a 10F capacitor will suffice. 2.13 Output Schottky Diode and Capacitor The Schottky output diode is exposed to large currents when the converter is operated in critical conduction mode, CCM. Care should be taken to ensure adequate margins for the voltage and current ratings.

The secondary and auxiliary are wound between the two primary windings. The transformer stack-up has three layers of insulation tape between the primary and the secondary side.

In the previous step, we selected an air gap of 0.3mm as our starting point. The air gap is critical because it allows the transformer to extend its maximum saturation; however, if the gap is larger, then it could contribute to higher leakage inductance. In this example, it is possible to achieve a leakage inductance less than 2% of primary.
