PrimAccurate™ High-Performance N-Channel MOSFET Digital PWM Controller for Networking Adapters


Selectable cable drop compensation

The iW1762 is a high performance AC/DC controller designed to drive an external power N-channel MOSFET for peak current mode PWM flyback power supplies. Optimized for power supplies with output power between 15W- 24W, the iW1762 is ideal for power adapters in networking equipment and monitors.

The iW1762 easily meets the US DoE’s external power supply standard and the EU’s Code of Conduct, version 5, tier 2 standard, with no-load power consumption less than 20mW while complying with active mode efficiency requirements. As a PrimAccurate™ controller the iW1762 does not need any direct secondary-side feedback components, eliminating the need for optocouplers, reducing component count and solution cost. Additional features include Dialog's proprietary EZ-EMI™ technology, adaptive multi-mode PWM/PFM control for optimal efficiency across all loads, 5 selectable cable and connector voltage drop compensation voltages, robust operation with full protection from over-voltage and over-temperature.

For information on the iW1762 Ultrabook™ solution, see the reference designs page.
