The LT3837 is an isolated switching regulator controller designed for medium power flyback topologies. A typical application is 10W to 60W with the part powered from a DC supply.

The LT3837 is a current mode controller that regulates an output voltage based on sensing the secondary voltage via a transformer winding during flyback. This allows for tight output regulation without the use of an optoisolator, improving dynamic response and reliability. Synchronous rectification increases converter efficiency and improves output cross regulation in multiple output converters.

The LT3837 operates in forced continuous conduction mode which improves cross regulation in multiple winding applications. Switching frequency is user programmable and can be externally synchronized. The part also has load compensation, undervoltage lockout and soft-start circuitry.

The LT3837 is available in a thermally enhanced 16-pin TSSOP package.

Product Detail

Demonstration circuit 950A-B is an isolated, 30W multi-output, synchronous flyback converter in 1/8 brick format featuring the LT3837. Output voltage sensing is implemented without the use of opto-coupler, by sensing the voltage across a primary side auxiliary winding. A load compensation circuit is used to compensate for voltage drops caused by load currents. DC950A-B has input voltage range 9V-36V. Demonstration circuit 950A uses a transformer design with tapped secondary winding, to achieve higher efficiency and better cross regulation than is possible with a transformer that uses a separate winding for each output.
