NCP1247 Controller - Fixed Frequency, Current Mode, for Flyback Converters

The NCP1247 is a new fixed−frequency current−mode controller featuring the Dynamic Self−Supply. This function greatly simplifies the design of the auxiliary supply and the VCC capacitor by activating the internal startup current source to supply the controller during start−up, transients, latch, stand−by etc.

NCP1247 Controller

This device contains a special HV detector which detect the application unplug from the AC input line and triggers the X2 discharge current. This HV structure allows the brown−out detection as well.

How does a telephone line work?

"There are several different states that the phone line can be in, depending upon what the phone is doing, and what the phone company is doing to the phone. The central office (or nearby equivalent) applies various DC and AC voltages to the two-wire phone loop (labeled "tip" and "ring") during these various stages of call progress. In the idle state, the telephone company central office applies -48(±6) Vdc...."
