DESCRIPTION
UCC38C4x family is a high-performance current-
mode PWM controller. It is an enhanced BiCMOS
version with pin-for-pin compatibility to the
industry standard UC384xA family and UC384x
family of PWM controllers. In addition, lower
startup voltage versions of 7 V are offered as
UCC38C40 and UCC38C41.
Providing necessary features to control fixed
frequency, peak current-mode power supplies,
this family offers the following performance
advantages. The device offers high-frequency
operation up to 1 MHz with low start-up and
operating currents, thus minimizing start-up loss
and low operating power consumption for
improved efficiency. The device also features a
very fast current-sense-to-output delay time of
35 ns and a ±1 A peak output current capability
with improved rise and fall times for driving large
external MOSFETs directly.
The UCC38C4x family is offered in 8-pin
packages, MSOP (DGK), SOIC (D) and PDIP (P).

pin assignments
COMP: This pin provides the output of the error amplifier for compensation. In addition, the COMP pin is
frequently used as a control port by utilizing a secondary-side error amplifier to send an error signal across the
secondary-primary isolation boundary through an opto-isolator.
CS: The current sense pin is the non-inverting input to the PWM comparator. This is compared to a signal
proportional to the error amplifier output voltage. A voltage ramp can be applied to this pin to run the device with
a voltage mode control configuration.
FB: This pin is the inverting input to the error amplifier. The non-inverting input to the error amplifier is internally
trimmedto2.5V±1%.
GND: Ground return pin for the output driver stage and the logic level controller section.
OUT: The output of the on-chip drive stage. OUT is intended to directly drive a MOSFET. The OUT pin in the
UCC38C40, UCC38C42 and UCC38C43 is the same frequency as the oscillator, and can operate near 100%
duty cycle. In the UCC38C41, UCC38C44 and the UCC38C45, the frequency of OUT is one-half that of the
oscillator due to an internal T flipflop. This limits the maximum duty cycle to < 50%.
RT/CT: Timing resistor and timing capacitor. The timing capacitor should be connected to the device ground
using minimal trace length.
VDD: Power supply pin for the device. This pin should be bypassed with a 0.1-μF capacitor with minimal trace
lengths. Additional capacitance may be needed to provide hold up power to the device during startup.
VREF: 5-V reference. For stability, the reference should be bypassed with a 0.1-μF capacitor to ground using
the minimal trace length possible.

APPLICATION INFORMATION
This device is a pin-for-pin replacement of the bipolar UC3842 family of controllers, the industry standard PWM
controller for single-ended converters. Familiarity with this controller family is assumed.
The UCC28C4x/UCC38C4x series is an enhanced replacement with pin-to-pin compatibility to the bipolar
UC284x/UC384x and UC284xA/UC384xA families. The new series offers improved performance when
compared to older bipolar devices and other competitive BiCMOS devices with similar functionality. Note that
these improvements discussed below generally consist of tighter specification limits that are a subset of the
older product ratings, maintaining drop-in capability. In new designs these improvements can be utilized to
reduce the component count or enhance circuit performance when compared to the previously available
devices.
advantages
This device increases the total circuit efficiency whether operating off-line or in dc input circuits. In off-line
applications the low start-up current of this device reduces steady state power dissipation in the startup resistor,
and the low operating current maximizes efficiency while running. The low running current also provides an
efficiency boost in battery operated supplies.
low voltage operation
Two members of the UCC38C4x family are intended for applications that require a lower start-up voltage than
the original family members. The UCC38C40 and UCC38C41 have a turn-on voltage of 7.0 V typical and exhibit
hysteresis of 0.4 V for a turn-off voltage of 6.6 V. This reduced start-up voltage enables use in systems with lower
voltages, such as 12-V battery systems which are nearly discharged.
high speed operation
The BiCMOS design allows operation at high frequencies that were not feasible in the predecessor bipolar
devices. First, the output stage has been redesigned to drive the external power switch in approximately half
the time of the earlier devices. Second, the internal oscillator is more robust with less variation as frequency
increases. In addition, the current sense to output delay has been reduced by a factor of three, to 45ns typical.
These features combine to provide a device capable of reliable high frequency operation.
The UCC38C4x family oscillator is true to the curves of the original bipolar devices at lower frequencies yet
extends the frequency programmability range to at least 1MHz. This allows the device to offer pin to pin
capability where required yet capable of extending the operational range to the higher frequencies typical of
latest applications. When the original UC3842 was released in 1984 most switching supplies operated between
20kHz and 100kHz. Today, the UCC38C4x can be used in designs cover a span roughly ten times higher than
those numbers.
start/run current improvements
The start--up current is only 60 μA typical, a significant reduction from the bipolar device’s ratings of 300uA
(UC384xA). For operation over the temperature range of --40 to 85°C the UCC28C4x devices offer a maximum
startup current of 100 μA, an improvement over competitive BiCMOS devices. This allows the power supply
designer to further optimize the selection of the startup resistor value to provide a more efficient design. In
applications where low component cost overrides maximum efficiency the low run current of 2.3 mA, typical,
may allow the control device to run directly through the single resistor to (+) rail, rather than needing a bootstrap
winding on the power transformer, along with a rectifier. The start/run resistor for this case must also pass
enough current to allow driving the primary switching MOSFET, which may be a few milliamps in small devices.

APPLICATION INFORMATION
±1% initial reference voltage
The BiCMOS internal reference of 2.5 V has an enhanced design and utilizes production trim to allow initial
accuracy of ±1% at room temperature and ±2% over the full temperature range. This can be used to eliminate
an external reference in applications that do not require the extreme accuracy afforded by the additional device.
This is very useful for nonisolated dc-to-dc applications where the control device is referenced to the same
common as the output. It is also applicable in offline designs that regulate on the primary side of the isolation
boundary by looking at a primary bias winding, or perhaps from a winding on the output inductor of a
buck-derived circuit.
reduced discharge current variation
The original UC3842 oscillator did not have trimmed discharged current, and the parameter was not specified
on the datasheet. Since many customers attempted to use the discharge current to set a crude deadtime limit
the UC3842A family was released with a trimmed discharge current specified at 25°C. The
UCC28C4x/UCC38C4x series now offers even tighter control of this parameter, with approximately ±3%
accuracy at 25°C, and less than 10% variation over temperature using the UCC28C4x devices. This level of
accuracy can enable a meaningful limit to be programmed, a feature not currently seen in competitive BiCMOS
devices. The improved oscillator and reference also contribute to decreased variation in the peak to peak
variation in the oscillator waveform, which is often used as the basis for slope compensation for the complete
power system.
soft-start
The following diagram provides a typical soft-start circuit for use with the UCC38C42. The values of R and C
should be selected to bring the COMP pin up at a controlled rate, limiting the peak current supplied by the power
stage. After the soft-start interval is complete the capacitor continues to charge to VREF
, effectively removing
the PNP transistor from circuit considerations.
The optional diode in parallel with the resistor forces a soft-start each time the PWM goes through UVLO and
the reference (VREF) goes low. Without the diode,the capacitor otherwise remains charged during a brief loss
of supply or brown-out, and no soft-start is enabled upon reapplication of VIN.

oscillator synchronization
The UCC38C4x oscillator has the same synchronization characteristics as the original bipolar devices. Thus,
the information in the Application Note U--100A, UC3842/3/4/5 Provides Low-Cost Current-Mode Control, (TI
Literature No. SLUA143) still applies. The application note describes how a small resistor from the timing
capacitor-to-ground can offer an insertion point for synchronization to an external clock, (see Figures 2 and 3).
Figure 2 shows how the UCC38C42 can be synchronized to an external clock source. This allows precise
control of frequency and dead time with a digital pulse train.

APPLICATION INFORMATION
precautions
The absolute maximum supply voltage is 20 V, including any transients that may be present. If this voltage is
exceeded, device damage is likely. This is in contrast to the predecessor bipolar devices, which could survive
up to 30 V. Thus, the supply pin should be decoupled as close to the ground pin as possible. Also, since no clamp
is included in the device, the supply pin should be protected from external sources which could exceed the 20 V
level.
Careful layout of the printed board has always been a necessity for high frequency power supplies. As the device
switching speeds and operating frequencies increase the layout of the converter becomes increasingly
important.
This 8-pin device has only a single ground for the logic and power connections. This forces the gate drive current
pulses to flow through the same ground that the control circuit uses for reference. Thus, the interconnect
inductance should be minimized as much as possible. One implication is to place the device (gate driver)
circuitry close to the MOSFET it is driving. Note that this can conflict with the need for the error amplifier and
the feedback path to be away from the noise generating components.
