This power led driver circuit is designed using the ISL97672A controls six channels of LED current for LCD backlight applications. The ISL97672A power LED driver is capable of driving LEDs from 4.5V to 26.5V, with a maximum output of 45V.
The ISL97672A power LED driver employs an adaptive boost switching architecture that allows Direct PWM dimming with linearity as low as 0.007% at 200Hz or 0.8% at 20kHz. Dimming can be as high as 30kHz.
This LED driver can compensate for non-uniformity of forward voltage drops in the LED strings. Its headroom control circuit monitors the highest LED forward voltage string for output regulation to minimize voltage headroom and power loss in a typical multi-string operation.
The IC features extensive protection functions that flag whenever a fault occurs. The protections include string-open and short-circuit detections, OVP, OTP, and an optional output short-circuit protection with a fault disconnect switch.
