Abstract

See full text

The present invention discloses a DC-to-DC converter of discontinuous conduction mode capable of preventing an inductor current from being reduced to zero under an idle state, comprising: an inductor operable to output the inductor current according to a DC-input signal under an energy-storage state, output the inductor current according to the DC-input signal and a DC-output signal under an energy-release state, and keep the inductor current unchanged under the idle state; a freewheel switch operable to be conductive under the idle state and nonconductive under the energy-storage and energy-release states according to a freewheel-control signal and form a current loop with the inductor; a current sensing circuit operable to detect the inductor current and generate a current-detection signal; and a control circuit operable to generate the freewheel-control signal according to the current-detection signal and control the state of the converter to be the energy-storage state, energy-release state or idle state.
