The LT8391 is a synchronous 4-switch buck-boost LED controller that regulates LED current from input voltage above, below, or equal to the output voltage. The proprietary peak-buck peak-boost current mode control scheme allows adjustable and synchronizable 150kHz to 650kHz fixed frequency operation, or internal ±15% triangle spread spectrum operation for low EMI. With 4V to 60V input, 0V to 60V output, and seamless low noise transitions between operation regions, the LT8391 is ideal for LED driver and battery charger applications in automotive, industrial, and battery-powered systems.
The LT8391 provides both internal (up to 128:1) and external (up to 2000:1) LED current PWM dimming with a high-side PMOS switch. Two CTRL pins provide flexible 20:1 analog dimming with ±3% LED current accuracy at 100mV full scale. Fault protection is provided to detect an open or short LED condition, during which the LT8391 retries, latches off, or keeps running.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 2345A is a 60V synchronous 4-switch buck-boost LED controller with spread spectrum featuring the LT8391 LED driver. It accepts an input voltage from 4V to 60V and drives a single string of LEDs up to 25V at 2A. DC2345A runs at 400kHz switching frequency without spread spectrum, but spread spectrum frequency modulation (SSFM) can be enabled with a simple jumper. SSFM spreads the switching frequency to fsw ±15% for reduced EMI.
