A Product Line of
PUMP EXPRESSTM COMPATIBLE AC/DC PSR CONTROLLER
The AP3790 is a high accuracy and low cost switching mode power
supply controller to drive power bipolar transistor for battery
charger/adapter applications. The controller regulates the output
voltage and current in the primary side by piece-wise Pulse
Frequency Modulation (p-PFM) in discontinuous conduction mode
(DCM). The controller uses adaptive source current to optimize
driving current to reduce driving loss. The system operating frequency
reduces linearly from heavy load to light load in each interval of the p-
PFM, and enters constant current mode when the load current is
equal to the maximum system output current.
The output voltage of AP3790 can be adjusted based on the patterns
of load current aligned to MTK Pump Express protocol.
The AP3790 provides operating frequency Jitter function from light to
full load range to improve the power supply EMI performance. The
AP3790 also has built-in fixed cable voltage drop compensation (6%
of nominal system output voltage) and adjustable line voltage
The AP3790 can work individually to achieve Ultra-Low standby
power under 5V output.
The AP3790 is packaged in SO-8.
