The NCP1246 is a new fixed-frequency current-mode controller featuring Dynamic Self-Supply. This function greatly simplifies the design of the auxiiary supply and the Vcc capacitor by activating the internal startup current source to supply the controller during start-up, transients, latch, stnad-by etc. This device contains a special HV detector which detects the application unplug from the AC input line and triggers the X2 discharge current. The HV structure also includes brown-out detection circuitry. The NCP1246 features a timer-based fault detection that ensures the detection of overload and an adjustable power compensation to help keep the maximum power independent of the input voltage. Due to frequency foldback, the controller exhibits excellent efficiency in light load condition while still achieving very low standby power consumption. Internal frequency jittering, ramp compensation, and a versatile latch input make this controller an excellent candidate for robust power supply designs. A dedicated off mode allows the SMPS to reach extremely low no load input power consumption when combinded with secondary side contoller NCP4353 or NCP4354. When used together, the SMPS is capable of achieving This product is IEC60950 compliant. Please see the test report and certification in the Conformance report section below.
