The ISL78229 is an automotive grade (AEC-Q100 Grade 1), 2-phase 55V synchronous boost controller that simplifies the design of high power boost applications. It integrates strong half-bridge drivers, an analog/digital tracking input, comprehensive protection functions, and a PMBus interface for added control and telemetry.
ISL78229 enables a simple, modular design for systems requiring power and thermal scalability. It offers peak-current mode control for fast line response and simple compensation. Its synchronous 2-phase architecture enables it to support higher current while reducing the size of input and output capacitors. The integrated drivers feature programmable adaptive dead time control offering flexibility in power stage design. ISL78229 offers a 90° output clock and supports 1-, 2-, and 4-phases.
ISL78229 offers a highly robust solution for the most demanding environments. Its unique soft-start control prevents large negative current even in extreme cases, such as a restart under high output prebias on high volume capacitances. It also offers two levels of cycle-by-cycle overcurrent protection, average current limiting, input OVP, output UVP/OVP, and internal OTP. A thermistor input is provided for external OTP for the power-stage elements. In the event of a fault, the ISL78229 offers individually programmable latch-off or hiccup recovery for each fault type.
Also integrated are several functions that ease system design. A unique tracking input is available that can control the output voltage, allowing it to track either a digital duty cycle (PWM) signal or an analog reference. ISL78229 provides input average current limiting so the system can deliver transient bursts of high load current while limiting the average current to avoid overheating. Finally, the ISL78229 PMBus interface provides fault reporting, telemetry, and system control to support functional safety qualification.

- Does the ISL78229 shut down at over current (OC)?
- Can the ISL78229 be used for 12V to 48V battery charging system?
- Can the ISL78229 be configured to operate only 1-phase? If so, how should the 2nd phase be disabled?
- Will the ISL78229 output UV condition be triggered if I use the TRACK function to reduce the output below 80% of the programmed regulation point?
- If I am using the TRACK function to set the output voltage on the ISL78229, what will be the OV limit?
- If the ISL78229 experiences an Input OV condition and HICCUP mode is selected, will the output voltage be discharged during the hiccup restart?
- Can I use Phase Dropping Mode in Forced CCM Mode?
