New Upgrade | HP1012: Digital Totem Pole PFC Controller with 650 V Half-Bridge Gate Driver

1 3, 2024

Recently, our launched totem pole PFC digital controller HP1010 has gained significant market recognition for its high efficiency and flexibility, as well as simplified circuitry that effectively addresses key technical challenges of the totem pole bridgeless topology. To further assist our customers in achieving a better balance between performance and cost, we have introduced the higher integrated HP1012 totem pole PFC digital controller featuring an integrated 650 V slow switch driver.

The HP1012 is a totem pole bridgeless PFC digital controller that integrates a 650 V line frequency synchronous rectifier half-bridge driver, packaged in a 7.8 mm x 8.2 mm SSOP-24L package. It builds upon the efficient, flexible, and compact characteristics of the HP1010 chip by incorporating a half-bridge driver, thereby offering higher integration and cost-performance ratio.

Its digital architecture is based on a high-speed digital state machine structure and includes a high-performance analog front-end and high-speed comparators, ensuring real-time high-performance control of the totem pole bridgeless PFC. The HP1012 provides cycle-by-cycle current limiting protection (CBC) that effectively prevents overcurrent issues caused by abnormal power supply voltage fluctuations. Its surge voltage protection feature allows for quick shutdown of the slow synchronous rectifier during surge overvoltage events, especially reverse lightning strikes in the positive half-cycle and forward lightning strikes in the negative half-cycle, enhancing the stability and reliability of the totem pole PFC. HP1012 supports intelligent mode switching (CCM, DCM, and Burst Mode) to adapt to varying load conditions and achieve excellent light-load efficiency. It also features a switch frequency spreading function to improve EMI performance of the totem pole bridgeless PFC power system. Functions can be easily configured through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) software, accelerating product design and time-to-market.

The HP1012 is suitable for a wide range of high-efficiency, compact switch-mode power supplies, such as cloud computing/server power supplies, high-performance computers, 5G/telecommunications power supplies, industrial power supplies, Ultra-High Density (UHD) power supplies, and other power systems.

By integrating the half-bridge driver, it better meets user demands for driving capability and integration. The streamlined external circuitry results in a compact overall solution, reducing PCB area usage, saving board space, and effectively lowering BOM costs.

Moreover, the HP1012 comes equipped with a comprehensive set of programmable protection functions including input voltage overvoltage/undervoltage protection, output voltage overvoltage/undervoltage protection, and output feedback voltage open-circuit protection, where all protection parameters and enable/disable settings can be independently configured. This ensures the safe and stable operation of the entire system.
