Part Number: BSC25-0108
Function: Flyback Transformer
BSC25-0108 is Flyback Transformer. A flyback transformer, also known as a line output transformer (LOPT), is a specialized type of transformer used in electronic circuits to generate high voltage and store energy. It is commonly found in various applications, including:
Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) Displays: In older CRT televisions and computer monitors, a flyback transformer is used to generate the high voltage required to accelerate electrons and create the images on the screen.
Switched-Mode Power Supplies (SMPS): In some SMPS designs, particularly those using the flyback topology, the transformer is a critical component that helps isolate and transfer energy between different parts of the circuit.
Voltage Converters: Flyback transformers are used in some voltage converter circuits to step up or step down the voltage levels, depending on the application.
The basic operation of a flyback transformer involves storing energy in its primary winding while a switch (usually a transistor) is on, and then releasing that energy to the secondary winding when the switch turns off. This allows for the generation of high voltages or efficient power conversion.
