Microchip offers two DC/DC converter reference designs with dsPIC33F

Microchip Technology Inc. announced two new digitally controlled DC/DC converter reference designs with advanced, high-efficiency topologies to help designers optimize contrasting requirements in the design process, including efficiency, power density and cost.

Both the quarter brick DC/DC reference design and the DC/DC LLC converter reference design use Microchip’s 16-bit dsPIC33F GS series of digital-power digital signal controllers (video overview below ) for fully digital control of the power-conversion and system-management functions.

Key features :

Quarter Brick DC/DC Converter Reference Design :

  • Quarter Brick Size
  • Phase Shift Full Bridge (PSFB) Topology
  • 200W Output Power
  • Input voltage 36-76 Vdc; output voltage 12V
  • >93% efficiency



DC/DC LLC Converter Reference Design :

  • LLC resonant topology
  • 200W output power
  • Input voltage 350-420 Vdc; output voltage 12V
  • >95% efficiency
