ADP8861:  Charge Pump, 7-Channel Smart LED Driver with I2C Interface

Product Details

Product Status:Recommended for New Designs

The ADP8861 provides a powerful charge pump driver with independent control of up to seven LEDs. Six of these LEDs can be independently driven up to 30 mA (typical). A seventh LED can be driven to 60 mA (typical). All LEDs are programmable for maximum current and fade in/out times via the I2C® interface. These LEDs can also be combined into groups to reduce the processor instructions during fade in/out.

Driving this entire configuration is a two-capacitor charge pump with gains of 1×, 1.5×, and 2×. This setup is capable of driving a maximum IOUT of 240 mA from a supply of 2.5 V to 5.5 V. A full suite of safety features, including short-circuit, overvoltage, and overtemperature protection, allows easy implementation of a safe and robust design. Additionally, input inrush currents are limited via an integrated soft start combined with controlled input-to-output isolation.

The ADP8861 is available in a compact lead frame chip scale package (LFCSP).


  • Charge pump with automatic gain selection of 1x, 1.5x, and 2x for maximum efficiency
  • 7 independent, programmable LED drivers: 7 drivers capable of 30 mA (typical); 1 driver also capable of 60 mA (typical)
  • Programmable maximum current limit (128 levels)
  • Standby mode for <1 μA current consumption
  • 16 programmable fade in and fade out times: 0.1 sec to 5.5 sec; Choose from linear, square, or cubic rates
  • Fading override
  • I2C-compatible interface for all programming
  • Dedicated reset pin and built-in power-on reset (POR)
  • Short-circuit, overvoltage, and overtemperature protection
  • Internal soft start to limit inrush currents
  • Input-to-output isolation during faults or shutdown
  • Operation down to VIN = 2.5 V with undervoltage lockout (UVLO) at VIN = 2.0 V
  • Small lead frame chip scale package (LFCSP)

Describes the functionality of the ADP8860 LED driver and provides software development guidelines. The ADP8860 communicates with an external processor using an I2C interface and an interrupt line (nINT). The processor sends initialization and activation commands to the ADP8860, which acts as a slave device.
