Boost solution for 12V->400V/10mA

Dear Experts,


I'm looking for a compact solution for 12V->400V conversion. Load current can be expected to be 10mA. What would be the best controller for handling such an exotic conversion in a way that design size stays somewhat reasonable?


Thanks!

Rgds,

Juha

  • Hi Juha,

    Can you tell me what the application is and do you need isolation? Is it possible that the non-isolated dc/dc team might have something like this.

    Hi Peter,

    This is for laser biasing. Isolation is not required and that is why I made this post on non-isolated DC/DC -forum. What is your opinion on best approach?

    I see PMP20212 is "close" but would certainly need some work for extra V and I: http://www.ti.com/tool/PMP20212 .

    For 12 to 400V conversion you can not do a basic boost. The duty cycle would be much too high. Designs with high step up ratio and low current are many times done with a flyback, a multi stage charge pump, or a first stage boost with a reasonable duty cycle followed by some charge pump stages.  

    Here is one approach;

    Multiplied SEPIC Constant Current Capacitor Charger (15Vin to 400V/420Vout @ 80mA) Reference Design

    This does have several stages with L and C, and higher current than you need, so may not be a perfect fit.

    However it is worth showing.

    Another design would be the PMP1435 attached.

    This is not on the web, rather in my archives because it is a good demonstration of a boost stage followed by charge pumps.

    12Vin to 400Vout at 1mA.

    Lower current than requested but I believe it could be increased.

    PMP1435 looks pretty good. Do we have anything else in addition to schematics?

    Hello Juha,

    This design was built and tested.
    As a result we have Schematic, BoM, Test Results, gerber and board files.
    The board file is .PCB which is PCAD format.  The .SCH is PCAD as well
    PCAD can be imported into Altium Designer.

    I will attach them to this post.

    The user MUST take responsibility for the design if they use it.
    The design is for reference and not guaranteed to be without error.
    I have suggested it to many customers and it works very well.
