The UC3854A/B products are pin compatibleenhanced versions of the UC3854. Like the UC3854, these products provide all of the functions necessary for active power factor corrected preregulators. The controller achieves near unity power factor by shaping the ac input line current waveform to correspond to the ac input line voltage. To do this the UC3854A/B uses average current mode control. Average current mode control maintains stable, low distortion sinusoidal line current without the need for slope compensation, unlike peak current mode control.
A 1%, 7.5-V reference, fixed frequency oscillator, PWM, voltage amplifierwith soft-start, line voltage feedforward (VRMS squarer), input supply voltage clamp, and over current comparator round out the lilst of feataures.
Available in the 16-pin N (PDIP), DW (SOIC Wide), and J (CDIP) and 20-pin Q (PLCC) package. See Ordering Information table for availability by temperature range.
