The LTC3723-1/LTC3723-2 synchronous push-pull PWM controllers provide all of the control and protection functions necessary for compact and highly efficient, isolated power converters. High integration minimizes external component count, while preserving design flexibility.
The robust push-pull output stages switch at half the oscillator frequency. Dead-time is independently programmed with an external resistor. Synchronous rectifier timing is adjustable to optimize efficiency. A UVLO program input provides precise system turn-on and turn off voltages. The LTC3723-1 features peak current mode control with programmable slope compensation and leading edge blanking, while the LTC3723-2 employs voltage mode control with voltage feedforward capability.
The LTC3723-1/LTC3723-2 feature extremely low operating and start-up currents. Both devices provide reliable short-circuit and over temperature protection. The LTC3723-1/LTC3723-2 are offered in a 16-pin SSOP package.

Evaluation Kits (2)
Demonstration circuit 719 is an Isolated Full-Bridge Converter with Synchronous Rectification featuring the LTC3723-1, LTC3901, LTC4440, and LT1431. It operates at 300kHz and produces a regulated 12V, 20A output in a quarter-brick footprint from a typical telecom input voltage range of 42 to 56V. Synchronous rectification helps to attain efficiency approaching 96%. Isolation voltage is 1500VDC.
Demonstration circuit 541A is an isolated synchronous push-pull converter featuring the LTC3723-1, LTC3901, LT1431 and LT3710. The design provides an isolated 3.3V at 40A and 2.5V at 10A from a 48V telecom (36V to 72V) input voltage. Isolation voltage is 1500VDC.
The demo board also can provide 3.3V @ 50A with the 2.5V output disabled.
