16-channel 50-mA buck LED driver offers dot correction and gray scale dimming

New Products |
By eeNews Europe

Each channel has individual 6-bit dot correction current adjustment and 12-bit gray scale PWM dimming. Combined with a 0.5 µs minimum LED on-time, the LT3745 offers wide dynamic contrast ratios. Both dot correction and gray scale dimming are accessible via a serial interface in TTL/CMOS logic.      

The LT3745’s 6 V to 55 V input voltage range is well suited for a wide range of input sources found in commercial and industrial designs, typically between 12 V and 48 V. The combination of minimal externals and a 6 mm x 6 mm QFN package provide a highly compact solution footprint for multichannel LED applications.     

The LT3745’s internal buck controller generates an adaptive bus voltage slightly higher than the parallel LED strings to deliver efficiencies over 90%. Sixteen individual linear current sinks regulate and modulate individual LED strings, offering a wide range of functionality in a compact solution footprint.

The LT3745 performs full diagnostics and protection against open/short LED and overtemperature faults, with the fault status sent via the serial data interface. The 30 MHz fully buffered, skew-balanced, cascadable serial interface makes the LT3745 ideal for large screen LCD dynamic backlighting as well as full color LED displays.     

Availability and Pricing     

The LT3745EUJ is available in a 40-lead 6 mm x 6 mm QFN package, priced starting at $4.95 each, in 1,000-piece quantities. The extended temperature version the LT3745IUJ, or I-grade, is also available, priced starting at $5.45 each in 1,000-piece quantities. All versions are available from stock.
