The LT3512 is a high voltage monolithic switching regulator specifically designed for the isolated flyback topology. No third winding or opto-isolator is required for regulation as the part senses output voltage directly from the primary-side flyback waveform. The device integrates a 420mA, 150V power switch, high voltage circuitry, and control into a high voltage 16-lead MSOP package with four leads removed.
The LT3512 operates from an input voltage range of 4.5V to 100V and delivers up to 4.5W of isolated output power. Two external resistors and the transformer turns ratio easily set the output voltage. Off-the-shelf transformers are available for several applications. The high level of integration and the use of boundary mode operation results in a simple, clean, tightly regulated application solution to the traditionally tough problem of isolated power delivery.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 1803A is a monolithic high voltage isolated flyback converter featuring the LT3512. The demo circuit is designed for a 5V isolated output from an input voltage range of 36V to 75V. The maximum output current is 500mA. VIN can be lower if output current is less than 500mA. The circuit doesn’t require an opto-isolator due to the output voltage being sensed directly from the primary side transformer winding. A third winding is used to bias the LT3512 for highest efficiency.
