Driving Performance In GaN-Based USB-C Adapters And Chargers With EPR

With the announcement of the USB PD 3.1 standard [1], higher power levels of up to 240 W are enabled. Still, the wide output voltage range from 5 V to 48 V raises new challenges for the converter topologies currently in use. In this white paper, the combination of an AC-DC PFC boost and a DC-DC hybrid flyback (HFB) stage [2], also well known as asymmetrical half-bridge flyback topology, is prop... » read more
