    Half-Bridge Galvanically-Isolated in Low Voltage, Low Power Application?

    Can a half-bridge configuration, such as the following, be an efficient solution for the following requirement?

    Requirement:
    - Galvanic isolation between input and output
    - Input: 12-24V DC
    - Output: 5V DC @ 2A

    What about SR losses? According to Infineon's chart, below, SR losses would exceed diode losses at our desired output. Is there a way to mitigate that, or an alternate topology?

    Hi,

    As per the required power specification, a Flyback topology is well preferred. It has less component count compared to half bridge and it is easy to control.

    Please find the attached image with different DC-DC topologies, their specifications and its applications.

    Please revert back if you need any help in selecting the right switch and the package.
