AP3710 (Not Recommended for new design)

NRND = Not Recommended for New Design


The AP3710 is a green-mode PWM controller, its main applications are low power supplies such as offline battery chargers, adapters, STB and other auxiliary supplies, where the needs for low no load power, low total cost and high reliability are all required. The functional blocks of AP3710 include: under voltage lockout with low start-up current; precise voltage reference for internal comparators; PWM comparator with current limit control, feedback signal and bandgap input; short circuit comparator and open circuit protection for opto-coupler. The AP3710 operates at a fixed 60kHz switching frequency, its output connects to the emitter of high voltage NPN transistor or the source of MOSFET. In normal mode, it works as a switch to turn on or turn off the external transistor. In failure modes like open loop, over voltage or overload due to short circuit, the chip enters into an auto restart mode control°C by the internal protection unit.
