Six pin high performance CRM/DCM PFC controller

The UCC28056 device drives PFC boost stages based on an innovative mixed mode method that operates in Transition mode (TM ) at full load and transitions seamlessly into Discontinuous Conduction mode (DCM) at reduced load, automatically reducing switching frequency. This device incorporates burst mode operation to further improve light load performance, enabling systems to meet challenging energy standards while eliminating the need to switch off the PFC.
