    For schematic of my "controller" see .
    Some responders in the past indicated that the source had to be
    pulled down to ground for the dratted IR2118 to work properly.
    Note in my case i need the output to be adjustable from somewhere
    near ground (50V will do) to somewhere near supply (120V), and that
    voltage have little ripple (say under 10% or 10V - whichever is
    reasonable for supply to bottom of flyback in TV.
    As shown, i do not get an adjustable voltage, and it is fairly low.

    Clues please to get this to work (or an alternate that is cheeep.

    what are you trying to do, could you make a simple schematic?

    Please READ the first line..

    That is for you "controller", I mean a schematic of the system, the
    the load etc.

    when you say bottom of flyback, I'm imagining you need a supply that
    can sink

    Full manual for the TV set, and extracted schematic, with selected
    info now added to .
    I have added a pulse transformer..the IR2118 is now driving its
    primary, and a 1K added from Vs (pin 6) to ground lets it work nicely.
    Still do not get adjustable range desired.
    The pulse transformer used is the Murata 78601/2C (500uH) and does
    not "transmit" the full width of the pulse:

    |---\ <--full 12V
    | \
    | | v--rather small level
    | |-----|
    -----| |------ 0V

    <--5uSec--> Pulse transformer loading is the FET gate

    Would a 10,000uH pulse transformer work better?

    More inductance isn't the problem; you need one with a higher flux

    In that particular series, they use Ferroxcube 3F3 cores, so a higher
    inductance will be consistent with higher flux, not just a higher
    permeability core.
