These flyback transformers act as controllers for ac-dc switchmode power supply applications, and reduce size and component count by 25%. The transformer meets the IRIS-series integrated switcher application requirements. The flyback transformer stores energy when the primary switch is on, then transfers the energy to the outputs when the switch is off. The transformer is more like an inductor with secondary windings attached.
