OB2372 is an excellent primary side regulation controller with CC/CV operation for medium level power AC/DC charger and adapter applications. The device directly drives a power MOSFET and operates in CCM/QR mode to provide high efficiency along with several functions of built-in protections. It removes the need for secondary feedback circuitry to lower the total bill of material cost. Proprietary Constant Voltage (CV) and Constant Current (CC) control is integrated as shown in the figure below.

In CV control, the controller changes the mode of operation according to line voltage and load condition. At full loading, the controller operates in fixed frequency CCM in low line voltage and operates quasi-resonant (QR) mode in high line voltage. The primary side regulation power supplies up to high power without the efficiency limitation of DCM or audible noise.

In CC control, OB2372 samples the Vcs peak current and the demagnetization pulse to regulation the output constant current. The current and output power setting can be adjusted externally by the sense resistor Rs at CS pin.

OB2372 offers comprehensive protection coverage with auto-recovery feature including Cycle-by-Cycle current limiting, VDD OVP, OLP, SCP  etc.

OB2372 consumes less than 75mW input power at no- load condition with high line voltage.

OB2372 is offered in SOP8 package.
