The TPS23758 device combines a Power over Ethernet (PoE) powered
device (PD) interface, a 150-V switching power FET, and a current-mode DC-DC controller optimized
for flyback topology. The high level of integration along with primary side regulation (PSR),
spread spectrum frequency dithering (SSFD), and advanced startup makes the
TPS23758 an ideal solution for size-constrained applications. The PoE
implementation supports the IEEE 802.3at standard as a 13-W, Type 1 PD.
The PSR feature of the DC-DC controller uses feedback from an auxiliary winding for
control of the output voltage, eliminating the need for external shunt regulator and optocoupler.
It is optimized for operation in continuous conduction mode (CCM)
with secondary side synchronous rectification, resulting in optimum overall efficiency, regulation
accuracy and step load response over multiple outputs (for example 5-V and 3.3-V output).
Typically, the converter operates at a switching frequency of 250 kHz.
SFFD and slew rate control helps to minimize the size and cost of the EMI filter.
Advanced Startup allows the use of minimal bias capacitor while simplifying converter startup and
Primary auxiliary power detect (APD) pin can be used to provide
priority for a primary side power adapter.
The DC-DC controller features adjustable soft-start, slope compensation, and blanking. For non-isolated
applications, the buck topology is also supported by the TPS23758.
