Description:
Of the many DC/DC converter topologies available today, a designer usually selects one of them as a trade-off between a number of contrasting needs. Most often, the important features that are pursued in the design process are efficiency, power density (i.e., size of the converter), and cost. As presented in this application note, resonant converters ? LLC resonant converters in particular ? have all of the features mentioned above, resulting in a compact and highly efficient design. Their ability to keep the output voltage regulated, over a very wide input voltage range, contributes to reducing the overall system cost. The relatively simple architecture of these parts permits the implementation of control and supervision/management tasks with a small pin count dsPIC DSC from Microchip. Sophisticated control is possible, using the DSP capabilities of dsPIC DSC devices.
