TEA1836: GreenChip SMPS Control IC

The TEA18361T is a controller IC for low cost Switched Mode Power Supplies (SMPS). It is intended for flyback topologies. The built-in green functions provide high efficiency at all power levels. At high power levels the flyback operates in Quasi-Resonant (QR) mode. At lower power levels, the controller switches to Frequency Reduction (FR) or Discontinuous Conduction Mode (DCM) and limits the peak current to approximately 25% of the maximum peak current. Valley switching is used in all operating modes.
