We report on a mode-locked fiber laser featuring an Yb-doped large-mode-area Bragg fiber and exploiting dissipative-soliton pulse shaping. Reliable self-starting mode-locking is achieved using a fast semiconductor saturable absorber mirror. The laser generates 30 nJ chirped pulses at 17 MHz repetition rate for an average power of 510 mW . The 3.2 ps output pulses are compressed outside the cavity to 440 fs .
