Please join experts from Coilcraft and Maxim for a collaborative discussion on how to reduce complexity and footprints for power solutions. 

Due to its relatively simple design and small component count, the flyback topology remains very popular for isolated DC-DC converter applications. Micro-power and low-power applications are growing in demand, driving the need to reduce solution sizes and design complexities even further. In response to these needs, the “no-opto” flyback is becoming a new preferred topology.

No-opto isolated DC-DC solutions provide high efficiency, smallest size and lowest BOM by eliminating unreliable opto-couplers and related feedback components. This brings at least 30% smaller PCB space and 50% less BOM. Also, it offers better EMI and immunity against RF interface with adjustable switching frequency for flyback topology.

In this webinar, attendees will learn: 

  • The size and performance benefits of off-the-shelf transformers for “no-opto” flyback converters.
  • What is No-opto Flyback?
  • What is the benefit of No-opto flyback?
  • How to start design of no-opto flyback circuit?
  • What is needed for design solution?
