MOSFET controller enables PSUs to exceed Energy Star efficiency goals

Drawing a quiescent current of less than 1mA, and with its ability to operate from supply voltages as low as 4.5V, the controller outperforms competing solutions and delivers flyback power supplies capable of exceeding the Energy Star standby ratings.

Of interest to makers of AC-DC and DC-DC internal and external power supplies used in both industrial and consumer product sectors, the SO8 packaged ZXGD3105N8 can also operate at switching frequencies as high as 500kHz, affecting a reduction in transformer size leading to slimmer form factor design.

To help maximize power supply circuit efficiency, the MOSFET controller functions as a proportional gate drive, which both protects against unnecessary MOSFET turn-off and reduces MOSFET turn-off propagation delay down to 15ns, thereby minimizing reverse current flow.
