The LTC1871-1 is a wide input range, current mode, boost, flyback or SEPIC controller that drives an Nchannel power MOSFET and requires very few external components. It eliminates the need for a current sense resistor by utilizing the power MOSFET’s on-resistance, thereby maximizing efficiency. Higher output voltage applications are possible with the LTC1871-1 by connecting the SENSE pin to a resistor in the source of the power MOSFET.
The IC’s operating frequency can be set with an external resistor over a 50kHz to 1MHz range, and can be synchronized to an external clock using the MODE/SYNC pin.
The LTC1871-1 differs from the LTC1871 by having a lower pulse skip threshold, making it ideal for applications requiring constant frequency operation at light loads. The lower pulse skip threshold also helps maintain constant frequency operation in applications with a wide input voltage range. For applications requiring primary-to-secondary side isolation, please refer to the LTC1871 datasheet.
The LTC1871-1 is available in the 10-lead MSOP package.

Demonstration circuit 1225 is high efficiency nonisolated SEPIC (Single Ended Primary Inductor Converter) converter featuring the LTC1871-1 switching controller. The DC1225 converts 5V to 20V input to 12V output and provides over 3A of output current. The converter operates at 300kHz with efficiency over 94%. With proper amount of airflow, the DC1225 converter can generate over 3A of output current. The DC1225 can be easily modified to generate output voltages in the range from 1.23V to 48V. Also, the DC1225 can be modified for other input voltages like 5V-36V, 9V-36V, 36V-72V, and so on. The wider input voltage range will decrease the converter efficiency.
