The LT8310 is a simple-to-use resonant reset forward converter controller that drives the gate of a low side N-channel MOSFET from an internally regulated 10V supply. The LT8310 features duty mode control that generates a stable, regulated, isolated output using a single power transformer. With the addition of output voltage feedback, via opto-coupler (isolated) or directly wired (nonisolated), current mode regulation is activated, improving output accuracy and load response. The flexibility to choose transformer turns ratio makes high step-down or step-up ratios possible without operating at duty cycle extremes.
The user can program the switching frequency from 100kHz to 500kHz to optimize efficiency, performance or external component size. A synchronous output is available for controlling secondary side synchronous rectification to improve efficiency. User programmable protection features include monitors on input voltage (UVLO and OVLO) and switch current (overcurrent limit). The LT8310 soft-start feature helps protect the transformer from flux saturation.

Demonstration circuit 2015A is a resonant reset forward converter with synchronous rectification featuring the LT8310/LT8311 chipset. This circuit was designed to demonstrate the high levels of performance, efficiency, and small solution size attainable using these parts. It operates at 240kHz and produces a regulated 12V, 12A output from an input voltage range of 36V to 72V: suitable for telecom, industrial, and other applications. It has an eighth-brick footprint area. Synchronous rectification helps to attain efficiency exceeding 94%.
Demonstration circuit 1963A is a resonant reset forward converter featuring the LT8310 controller. This circuit was designed to demonstrate the high level of performance, and small solution size attainable using the LT8310. It operates at a 250kHz switching frequency, and regulates a 12V, 6A output from a 36V to 72V input source, making it well suited for telecom, industrial, and other applications. Table 1 summarizes the performance of the DC1963A.
Output regulation is handled on the secondary side by the LT1431, which is an adjustable shunt voltage regulator providing feedback to the primary side via an opto-coupler.
