Typical Application

LTC3207 Typical Application

Description

The LTC3207/LTC3207-1 are highly integrated multi-display LED drivers. The device contains a high-efficiency, low-noise charge pump to provide power to 12 universal LED current sources and one camera LED current source. The LTC3207/ LTC3207-1 require only five small ceramic capacitors to form a complete LED power supply and current controller. In addition there are two I2C addresses available.

The display currents are set by an internal precision current reference. Independent dimming, On/Off, blinking and gradation control for all universal current sources is achieved via the I2C serial interface. 6-bit linear DACs are available for adjusting brightness levels for each universal LED current source. The CAM current source has a 4-bit linear DAC to adjust brightness.

The LTC3207/LTC3207-1 charge pumps optimize efficiency based on the voltage across the LED current sources. The device powers-up in 1x mode and will automatically switch to boost mode whenever any enabled LED current source begins to enter dropout. The first dropout switches the IC into 1.5x mode and a subsequent dropout switches the LTC3207/LTC3207-1 into 2x mode. The device resets to 1x mode whenever a data register is updated via the I2C port.
