For startup, the HV pin is connected to the line input
through an external diode and resistor; R
200KΩ recommended). Peak startup current drawn from
the HV pin is (V

modulation to reduce the switching frequency in light-
load and no-load conditions. V

switching frequency is continuously decreased to the
minimum green-mode frequency of around 22KHz.
Current Sensing / PWM Current Limiting
Peak-current-mode control is utilized to regulate output
voltage and provide pulse-by-pulse current limiting. The
switch current is detected by a sense resistor into the
SENSE pin. The PWM duty cycle is determined by this
current-sense signal and V
When the voltage on the SENSE pin reaches around
voltage around 0.46V for low-line output power limit.
Leading-Edge Blanking (LEB)
Each time the power MOSFET is switched on, a turn-on
spike occurs on the sense-resistor. To avoid premature
termination of the switching pulse, a leading-edge
blanking time is built in. During this blanking period, the
current-limit comparator is disabled and cannot switch
off the gate driver.
Under-Voltage Lockout (UVLO)
The turn-on and turn-off thresholds are fixed internally at
17V and 10V, respectively. During startup, the hold-up
capacitor must be charged to 17V through the startup
resistor to enable the IC. The hold-up capacitor

Gate Output / Soft Driving
The BiCMOS output stage is a fast totem-pole gate
driver. Cross conduction has been avoided to minimize
heat dissipation, increase efficiency, and enhance
reliability. The output driver is clamped by an internal
13V Zener diode to protect power MOSFET transistors
against undesirable gate over voltage. A soft driving
waveform is implemented to minimize EMI.
For many applications, it is necessary to minimize the
inrush current at startup. The built-in 8ms soft-start
circuit significantly reduces the startup current spike and
output voltage overshoot.
The sensed voltage across the current-sense resistor is
used for peak-current-mode control and cycle-by-cycle
current limiting. Built-in slope compensation improves
FAN6754B inserts a synchronized, positive-going, ramp
at every switching cycle.
Constant Output Power Limit
When the SENSE voltage across sense resistor R
reaches the threshold voltage, around 0.46V for low-line
condition, the output GATE drive is turned off after a
small delay, t
current proportional to t
nearly constant regardless of the input voltage V
higher input voltage results in a larger additional current
and the output power limit is higher than under low input
line voltage. To compensate this variation for a wide AC
input range, a power-limiter is controlled by the HV pin
to solve the unequal power-limit problem. The power
limiter is fed to the inverting input of the current limiting
comparator. This results in a lower current limit at high-
line inputs than at low-line inputs.
Brownout and Constant Power Limited by
the HV Pin
Unlike previous PWM controllers, FAN6754B’s HV pin
can detect the AC line voltage brownout function and
adjust the current limit. Using a fast diode and startup
resistor to sample the AC line voltage, the peak value
refreshes and is stored in a register at each sampling
cycle. When internal update time is met, this peak value
is used for brownout and current-limit level judgment.

brownout converted to RMS value. For power saving,

power loss from HV sampling at light-load condition.
