This 1MHz all-ceramic capacitor design uses the MAX4400 op amp with an inverting gain of one-half. The op amp is biased from the MAX8538's on-board 5V VL regulator. With the gain of -1/2 the op-amp output is within its range and within the common-mode range of the error amp.

The control gain of a buck converter is VOUT/VIN = duty cycle. The control gain of a 1:1 flyback inverter is VOUT/VIN = duty cycle/(1 - duty cycle), which increases with duty cycle. For a 1:1 flyback inverter, duty cycle = VOUT/(VIN + VOUT) = 5V/(10.8V + 5V) = 0.317. Then the extra control gain is 1/(1 - 0.317) = 1.464. This extra gain is factored into the design equations for Type 3 compensation by reducing the designed cross-over frequency a factor of 1.464. The op-amp inverting gain is compensated by adjusting R23 without affecting the rest of the compensation network.
