The R1211x Series are CMOS-based PWM step-up DC/DC converter controllers with low supply current.
Each of the R1211x Series consists of an oscillator, a PWM control circuit, a reference voltage unit, an error amplifier, a reference current unit, a protection circuit, and an under voltage lockout (UVLO) circuit. A low ripple, high efficiency step-up DC/DC converter can be composed of this IC with some external components, or an inductor, a diode, a power MOSFET, divider resisters, and capacitors. Phase compensation has been made internally in this device, and it has stand-by mode. Max duty cycle is internally fixed typically at 90%.
Soft start function is built-in, and Soft-starting time is set typically at 9ms (B, 700kHz version) or 10.5ms (D, 300kHz version). As for the protection circuit, after the soft-starting time, if the maximum duty cycle is continued for a certain period, the R1211x Series latch the external driver with its off state, or Latch-type protection circuit works.
The delay time for latch the state can be set with an external capacitor. To release the protection circuit, restart with power-on (Voltage supplier is equal or less than UVLO detector threshold level), or once after making the circuit be stand-by with chip enable pin and enable the circuit again.
