Fixed Input Push-Pull Driver Controller --- SCM1201BTA, SCM1212BTA
Introduction of Fixed Input Push-Pull Driver Controller
Upgraded from SCM1201ATA and SCM1212ATA, SCM1201BTA and SCM1212BTA are the drivers integrated with MOSFETs for the primary side of a push-pull power, which feature the wide input voltage range of 2.7-5.5V and can be used in the 1-2W applications with 3.3V and 5V inputs.
These series will not be damaged even under the high input voltage up to 9V within 1s. The two internal power MOSFETs are highly symmetrical, which can effectively reduce the degree of magnetic bias in the push-pull topology.
Key technologies of Fixed Input Push-Pull Driver Controller
SCM1201BTA and SCM1212BTA have three key technologies and meet the AEC-Q100 automobile standard to ensure reliability:
1. Soft start function:
Limiting the current of MOSFET to avoid the damage caused by the large current impact when turning on the power, and quantitatively guarantees the capacitive load in
CC load mode.
2. Output over-current and short circuit protection:
On the one hand, types of ic chips can distinguish the judgment and timing of overcurrent and short circuit protection to control the temperature rise of short circuit, and ensure the capacitive load for start-up and short-circuit recovery;
On the other hand, the chip can adjust the protection threshold based on the input voltage and temperature to avoid affecting the protection function due to the change of input voltage and temperature.
3. Over-temperature protection:
When the chip operates beyond the specified temperature, it will enter the dormancy state automatically. It will operate again when the temperature decreases to the set point.
