However, secondary side controllers require a primary side referenced bias supply to start operation. After start-up, the controller power can be provided from the secondary side. The NCP1030 incorporates in a single IC all the active power, control logic and protection circuitry required for implementing, with a minimum of external components, a highly integrated isolated bias supply. The features included in the NCP1030 can result in a footprint area reduction by up to 91% compared to a solution implemented using discrete components. The NCP1030 Power Switch Circuit is rated at 200 V, making it ideal for 48 V Telecom and 42 V automotive applications. In addition, this IC can operate from an existing 12 V supply. The NCP1030 includes an extensive set of features including: • On Board Power Switch: Eliminates the need for an external switch. As the Power Switch characteristics are well known the gate drive is tailored to control switching transitions and help reduce electromagnetic interference (EMI). • An Internal Start-up Regulator: Provides power to the NCP1030 during start-up. After start-up, the regulator is disabled, thus reducing power consumption. The regulator can be powered directly from the input line. • Internal Error Amplifier: Allows the implementation of an isolated supply using primary side regulation without the need for an optocoupler. • Internal Cycle by Cycle Current Limit: Eliminates the need for external sensing components. The programmed current limit is 500 mA. Semiconductor Components Industries, LLC, 2003 July, 2003 - Rev. 0 • • • • Circuit: Provides better current limit control compared to a fixed blanking period. The active LEB circuit masks the current signal during the Power Switch turn ON transition. Individual Line Undervoltage and Overvoltage (UV/OV) Detectors with Hysteresis: Eliminate the need for external supervisory function. The UV/OV detectors can be disabled if not needed. Single Capacitor Oscillator: Eliminates traditional timing resistor. Oscillator is optimized for operation up to 1.0 MHz. Internal $2% Voltage Reference: Eliminates the need for an external bypass capacitor. Thermal Shutdown Circuit: Protects the device in the event the maximum junction temperature is exceeded. DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS An isolated bias supply for a telecom system is designed and implemented using the NCP1030. The supply delivers 2.0 W at 12 V. The converter specifications are listed in Table 1. Table 1.

Equation 2 relates the on-time volt-second product to the reset volt-second product and adds a 20% dead time to insure the converter operates in discontinuous mode. Solving Equation 2 assuming a 0.5 V drop across D1, A dual output Flyback converter is shown in Figure 1.

The transformer primary side dot end becomes positive with respect to the non-dot end. While the Power Switch is ON, energy is stored in the transformer and D1 and D2 are reverse biased. When M1 turns OFF, the transformer winding polarities are reversed, forward biasing D1 and D2. Energy is transferred to the secondary outputs during this period. If the secondary current decays to zero before the switch turns ON again, the converter operates in discontinuous mode. Otherwise, it operates in continuous mode. The converter regulates the output by sampling the output voltage and comparing it to a reference voltage. A signal proportional to their difference is generated and used to adjust the ON time of M1 such that the voltage difference is reduced. The Snubber limits the voltage across the Power Switch and helps reduce noise.

The secondary peak current, ISPK, and the diode blocking voltage, Vblock, determine the selection of rectification diodes, D1 and D2. The primary peak current and transformer turns ratio determine the secondary peak current as given by Equation 6. (eq. 1) DC Max Two main factors, voltage ripple and frequency compensation, are considered for the selection of the output capacitor, Cout. This section will focus on voltage ripple, while frequency compensation is covered in a latter section. The output capacitor provides the load current during the switch ON time.

Table 2 summarizes the specifications of the transformer. - Figure 1. Isolated Flyback Converter required. The transformer turns ratio (35 V * (0.4 A (12 V ) 0.5 V) a turns ratio greater than 2.58 is required. A turns ratio of 2.78 is selected.

In addition to the voltage calculated using equation 7, voltage spikes during switching transitions need to be considered when selecting the blocking voltage rating. A Schottky diode is selected to reduce the forward voltage drop, thus reducing power dissipation. On Semiconductor’s MBRA160 is selected as it meets all the requirements. - RESR Rout(eq) Cout(eq) Z1 A Zf - PWM Controller EA + + VREF AUXILIARY SUPPLY REGULATOR NCP1030 The auxiliary supply (OUTPUT 2) provides a means to regulate the main output (OUTPUT 1). In addition, the auxiliary winding disables the internal start-up circuit and provides power to the NCP1030 after initial power up. The same turns ratio and rectification diode used for the main output are used for the auxiliary winding to improve voltage tracking between the outputs. The auxiliary winding capacitor, CCC, is selected such that a voltage greater than 7.5 V is maintained on the VCC pin while the output reaches regulation. The time the output reaches regulation is measured at 0.8 ms. Once the start-up time is known, CCC is calculated using Equation 8. I t CCC + CC 2.5 V Rbias - Figure 2. Flyback Converters The open loop frequency response of the system (from A to B) is approximated by the modulator gain and the output network frequency response. Additional high frequency components are present but are not considered for our analysis as they are far beyond the crossover frequency. The modulator gain, GMOD, is approximated by Equation 9. GMOD + 3 Vin 2 Ǹ Rout(eq) h 2 f Lp (eq. 9) The output network block is comprised of Cout, RESR and Rout. The frequency response of the output network is given by Equation 10. (eq. 8) where, ICC includes the NCP1030 bias current (ICC3) and any additional current supplied by CCC. Assuming an ICC3 of 3.0 mA and a 2.0 mA bias current for the feedback sensing resistors, CCC is calculated at 1.6 mF. The VCC capacitor is set at 2.2 mF. Please note that if CCC is increased to match Cout, the transient response of the converter will suffer. This is because the capacitance to current ratio of the auxiliary winding is significantly greater then the output winding, taking it longer for CCC to follow Cout during a transient condition. H(f) + sRESRCout(eq) ) 1 sCout(eq) (RESR ) Rout(eq)) ) 1 (eq. 10) The total open loop frequency response is the product of Equations 9 and 10. Please note that Cout(eq) includes CCC and Cout reflected to the auxiliary winding by the transformer turns ratio. As the same turns ratio is used for both the auxiliary and output windings, Cout adds directly to CCC. The output network has one zero and one pole and they are given by Equations 11 and 12, respectively. FEEDBACK LOOP fz1 + If the feedback loop is not stable, the converter will oscillate. To insure the loop is stable, the open loop frequency response needs to cross 0 dB at a slope of -20 dB/dec, with a phase margin above 45° under all line and load conditions. This is accomplished by shaping the loop response using the internal error amplifier (EA). The block diagram shown in Figure 2 is used to evaluate the converter open loop response. 1 2p Cout RESR (eq. 11) 1 2p Rout Cout (eq. 12) fp1 [ The modulator gain response depends on Vin. Two extreme conditions, both minimum Rout and input voltage (GMOD1) as well as both maximum Rout and input voltage (GMOD2) are considered for frequency compensation. In order to facilitate frequency compensation, Cout is increased to 22 mF. The simulated open loop frequency responses for GMOD1 and GMOD2 are shown in Figures 3 and 4, respectively. http://onsemi.com 3 AND8119/D 0 50 Magnitude Phase 30 -20 20 -30 10 -40 0 -50 -10 -60 -20 -70 -30 -80 -40 -90 102 103 104 105 fp3 + Figure 3.

A system crossover frequency of 10 kHz is selected for GMOD1. As the modulator gain depends on the input voltage, a higher fCO is obtained for the maximum input voltage condition with equivalent output load. The selection of the compensation components begins by noting that the voltage on the VFB pin should be equal to 2.5 V (VREF) when the output is in regulation (12 V).

RCD Snubber -40 102 (eq. 25) Switching regulators can be noisy! However, with careful layout, noise is reduced. A few things to remember are: 1. Keep switching elements and high current traces away from the controller and sensitive nodes. 2. Keep trace lengths to a minimum, especially important for high current paths and timing components. 3. Use wide traces for high current paths. 4. Place bypass capacitors close to the components. 5. Use a ground plane if possible or a single point ground system. The bias supply is built using a single layer FR4, board. The board size is 2.0 in x 3.5 in.

Before powering the supply, it should be inspected for potential problems. A few suggestions include: 1. Verify all connections. Check for shorts and opens, especially on the input and output terminals. 2. Verify component values. 3. Slowly increase the input voltage while monitoring the input current. If the input current exceeds 10 mA, repeat steps 1 to 3. 4. Once the input voltage reaches 25 V, measure the voltage on critical nodes. The NCP1030 start-up regulator should be ON. If the voltages are not correct, remove power and repeat steps 1 to 3. 5. Increase the input voltage to 36 V. Measure the output voltage. If it is not approximately 12 V, repeat steps 1 to 3. 6. Increase the input voltage above 80 V. The output should turn OFF. Please be careful when probing and testing the converter. High voltage may be present. Exercise CAUTION! Once the converter functionality is verified, the board performance is evaluated and compared to our original goals. The evaluation criteria includes: 1. Open loop frequency response. 2. Efficiency. 3. Line and load regulation. 4. Step load response. 5. Start-up response.
