The UCC2540 is a secondary-side synchronous buck PWM controller for high current and low output voltage applications. It can be used either as the local secondary-side controller for isolated dc-dc converters using two-stage cascaded topologies or as a secondary-side post regulator (SSPR) for multiple output power supplies.
The UCC2540 runs with the synchronization signal from either the primary side or the high duty cycle quasi-dc output of bus converters or dc transformers. For higher efficiency, it also incorporates the Predictive Gate Drive technology that virtually eliminates body diode conduction losses in synchronous rectifiers.
The UCC2540 is available in the extended temperature range of –40°C to 105°C and is offered in thermally enhanced PowerPAD 20-pin HTSSOP (PWP) package. This space saving package with standard 20-pin TSSOP footprint has a drastically lower thermal resistance of 1.4°C/W øJC to accommodate the dual high-current drivers on board.
