12V 2A Switch Mode Power Supply with LP2704A

12 Volt 2 Amp switch mode power supply takes an AC input of 100-240V and gives stabilized 12V 2A DC output with low ripple and low interference.

The circuit uses an integrated circuit LP2704A of a series of circuits LP2703A/LP2703A./LP2704A package (SOP8).

Optimized circuit design with high rationality combined with high performance and price ratio SOI production process for cost-effective AC to DC converters.

With the usual PWM (pulse wide modulation) controller is different, it uses a simple on/off control method to stabilize the output voltage.

Integrate a 700 V power MOSFET, the working frequency is 140 kHz, high voltage switches current source, current limiting, and thermal shutdown circuit.

The thermal shutdown circuit detects the temperature of the junction, the threshold is set at 130 °C (typical) and has a hysteresis range of 55 °C (typical).

In the Undervoltage state, the prohibition time of power MOSFET switching exceeds the usual 1.2 seconds until the end of the Undervoltage state.

This power controller can work in a typical small flyback supply and it doesn't even need an auxiliary winding.

Circuit Diagram

Schematic of 12V 2A Switch-mode power supply circuit with IC LA2704A shown below.

Transformer Details

The transformer is a small ferrite EE16 BE010 model whose central column has an air gap of 0.4 mm. Primary (P) has 165 turns of wire diameter 0.15 mm. Secondary (S) has 2x 20 turns of wire 0.4 mm.

Switching supply is not for beginners, because most of its circuits are connected to fatal mains voltage. When bad design, the mains voltage can reach the output! Capacitors can remain charged to dangerous voltage even after disconnected from mains. Everything you do at your own risk, for any injury to health or property I do not take responsibility.


  1. Hi where can I find this IC TLP2704. Can you share link for IC?

    1. TLP2704 is a High Speed Optocoupler, 30V 5000Vrms. You can also use TLP281-4 or TLP291-4.

  2. What should be the primary inductance of the transformer?

  3. Hi, can you send to the figure of windings because you make secondary windings as a sandwich (2*20) .
    In my mind ,
    1- half of secondary 20 turns 0.4 mm
    2- primary 165 turns 0.15 mm
    3- half of secondary 20 turns 0.4 mm
    This is right??

    1. In the schematic, the primary winding (P) consists of 165 turns with single piece of 0.4mm copper wire, and the secondary winding (S) consists of 20 turns with two pieces of 0.4mm copper wire. You can wind the secondary with a single 0.8mm copper wire as well, but the number of turns remains 20.

    2. Thanks for your fast response.
      Can I use TNY268 instead of LP2704. Because it is not available in my country.
      If I will use TNY268, what is the modification in this circuit?

    3. No, you cannot use TNY268 as a direct replacement for LP2704.
      They are different members of the TinySwitch series and have different specifications and features.
      TNY268 is designed for lower power applications up to 15W, while LP2704 is suitable for higher power applications up to 36W.
      They have different integrated features and performance characteristics, so it's important to choose the appropriate IC based on your specific application requirements.
      Always refer to the manufacturer's datasheets and technical documentation for proper selection and compatibility.
