LT3796 Boost LED Driver for Twin LEDs with Detection and Protection for Faulty LED

Boost LED Driver for Twin LEDs with Detection and Protection for Faulty LED

The LT®3796/LT3796-1 are DC/DC controllers designed to regulate a constant-current or constant-voltage and are ideal for driving LEDs. The fixed frequency and current mode architecture result in stable operation over a wide range of supply and output voltages. Two ground referred voltage FB pins serve as the input for several LED protection features, and also allow the converter to operate as a constant-voltage source. The LT3796/LT3796-1 feature a programmable threshold output current sense amplifier with rail-to-rail common mode range. A separate high side amplifier is gain configurable with two resistors and can be used to regulate a second current or a voltage in combination with one of the FB pins. The PWM input provides LED dimming ratios of up to 3000:1.
