The LT8309 is a secondary-side synchronous rectifier driver that replaces the output rectifier diode in a flyback topology. By replacing the diode with a N-channel MOSFET, applications are no longer restricted by the heat constraints of the output diode. The IC replicates the behavior of a diode by sensing the drain-to-source voltage to determine when the current becomes negative. The LT8309's low minimum on- and off-times help improve noise immunity.
The fast propagation delay of 26ns allows applications to operate in discontinuous conduction mode (DCM) and critical conduction mode (CrCM). The gate driver features a 0.8Ω pull-down device for fast turn-offs. The 40V VCC rating allows the part to be driven from the output voltage or the rectified drain voltage of the MOSFET. A low quiescent current of 400μA maximizes efficiency at low output currents.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 1961A features the LT8309, a secondary synchronous driver in an isolated, no optocoupler, flyback converter. It regulates a 12V, 5A output from a 36V to 72V input source. Output regulation is handled on the primary side by the LT3748, a boundary conduction mode flyback controller which senses output voltage directly from the primary, resulting in a simple flyback schematic with no opto-coupler.
