The FAN7688 is an advanced Pulse Frequency Modulated (PFM) controller for LLC resonant converters with Synchronous Rectification (SR) that offers best in class efficiency for isolated DC/DC converters. It employs a current mode control technique based on a charge control, where the triangular waveform from the oscillator is combined with the integrated switch current information to determine the switching frequency. This provides a better control-to-output transfer function of the power stage simplifying the feedback loop design while allowing true input power limit capability. Closed-loop soft-start prevents saturation of the error amplifier and allows monotonic rising of the output voltage regardless of load condition. A dual edge tracking adaptive dead time control minimizes the body diode conduction time thus maximizing efficiency.
