Manufacturer: Maxim Integrated


MAX17497A datasheet



The devices include both a current mode fixed-frequency flyback converter and a synchronous step-down regulator. They contain all the control circuitry required to design wide input-voltage noniso lated power supplies to supply multiple output rails for smart meters, industrial control, and other similar applications. The MAX17497A has its rising/falling undervoltage lockout (UVLO) thresholds optimized for universal offline (85V AC to 265V AC) applications, while the MAX17497B supports undervoltage lockout (UVLO) thresholds suit able to low-voltage DC-DC applications. Both devices also include a 3.3V fixed-output synchronous step-down regulator that delivers up to 600mA load current.

The switching frequency of the MAX17497A flyback converter is 250kHz, while the MAX17497B flyback/ boost converter is 500kHz. The internally compensated synchronous step-down regulator switches at 1MHz on both versions. These frequencies allow the use of tiny magnetic and filter components resulting in compact, cost-effective power supplies. An EN/UVLO input allows the user to start the power supply precisely at the desired input voltage, while also functioning as an on/off pin. The OVI pin enables implementation of an input overvoltage protection scheme that ensures the converter shutsdown when the DC input voltage exceeds the desired maximum value.
