OB2373C 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 BCM/DCM 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. The primary side regulation power supplies up to high power without the efficiency limitation of DCM or audible noise.

In CC control, OB2373C 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.

OB2373C offers comprehensive protection coverage with auto-recovery feature including Cycle-by-Cycle current limiting, VDD OVP, OLP, SCP, OTP etc.

OB2373C consumes less than 75mW input power at no- load condition with high line voltage.

OB2373C is offered in SOT23-6 package.
