Where to use UCC25600 IC

The UCC25600 is a resonant mode controller IC, which is normally used for dc-to-dc applications. It is an industrial standard IC and can be found in adapters and home audio systems.  Since the regulation occurs through switching it is very efficient than linear circuits. The internal oscillator supports the switching frequencies from 40 kHz to 350 kHz.

The input voltage for the IC is from 11.5V to 18V and the output voltage can be varied from 0.5V to 22.5V and the maximum output current can be up to 800mA. So if you looking to design a DC-DC converter with the above specifications then UCC25600 might be of interest to you.


How to use UCC25600 IC

The IC requires a minimum number of components to be operational. A test circuit diagram from the UCC25600 datasheet is given below. Pin 1 is connected to ground through a resistor. This pin sets the dead time of high-side and low-side switch driving signals. The collector pin of an optocoupler is connected to pin 2 of IC to control the switching frequency for regulation purposes.

 UCC25600 Application Circuit

Pin 3 is for overcurrent protection. When the voltage on this pin is above 1 V, gate driver signals are actively pulled low. After the voltage falls below 0.6 V, the gate driver signal recovers with a soft-start. Pin 5 and 8 are connected to the primary side of the gate driver transformer to drive the half-bridge.


Applications of UCC25600

  • 100-W to 1-kW Power Supplies
  • LCD, Plasma, and DLP® TVs
  • Adaptors, Computing, and ATX Power Supplies
  • Home Audio Systems
  • Electronic Lighting Ballasts
