A80601 and A80601-1 High Power LED Driver with Pre-Emptive Boost for Ultra-High Dimming Ratio and Low Output Ripple FEATURES AND BENEFITS DESCRIPTION
• Automotive AEC-Q100 qualified The A80601 is a multi-output LED driver for automotive • Enhanced fault handling for ASIL B system compliance applications such as exterior lighting, heads-up display, and mid- • Wide input voltage range of 4.5 to 40 V for start/stop, size LCD backlighting. It implements a current-mode boost/ cold crank, and load dump requirements SEPIC converter with gate driver for external N-MOSFET. This • Operate in Boost or SEPIC mode for flexible output allows greater output power even at minimum supply voltage. • Gate driver for external NMOS to deliver higher output power The A80601 provides four integrated current sinks driving up • Four integrated LED current sinks, up to 210 mA each to 210 mA per string. Multiple sinks can be paralleled together • Boost switching frequency synced externally or to achieve higher LED currents up to 840 mA. The IC operates programmed from 200 kHz to 2.3 MHz from single power supply from 4.5 to 40 V; once started, it can • Programmable boost frequency dithering to reduce EMI continue to operate down to 4 V. This allows it to withstand • Advanced control allows minimum PWM on-time down stop/start, cold crank, and load dump conditions encountered to 0.3 µs, and avoids MLCC audible noises in automotive systems. • LED contrast ratio: 15,000:1 at 200 Hz using PWM dimming alone, 150,000:1 when combining PWM and The A80601 can control LED brightness through external PWM analog dimming signal. By using the patented Pre-Emptive Boost control, an LED • Excellent input voltage transient response even at lowest brightness contrast ratio of 15,000:1 can be achieved using PWM PWM duty cycle dimming at 200 Hz. A higher ratio of 150,000:1 is possible when • Gate driver for optional PMOS input disconnect switch using a combination of PWM and analog dimming. • Extensive fault protection features Continued on next page...
