The LT3754 is a 16-channel LED driver with a step-up DC/DC controller capable of driving up to 45V of LEDs. Each channel contains an accurate current sink with ±2.8% current matching. Channels follow a master programmable current to allow between 10mA to 50mA of LED current per string. Channels can be paralleled for higher LED current. Output voltage adapts to variations in LED VF for optimum efficiency and open LED faults do not affect the operation of connected LED strings.
The LT3754 allows a PWM dimming range up to 3000:1 and an analog dimming range up to 25:1. Operating frequency can be programmed from 100kHz up to 1MHz using a single resistor or synchronized to an external clock.
Additional features include: programmable maximum VOUT for open LED protection, a fault flag for open LED, programmable LED current derating vs temperature, micropower shutdown and internal soft-start. The LT3754 is available in a thermally enhanced 5mm × 5mm 32-pin QFN Package.

Evaluation Kits (1)
DC1436A is a 16-Channel High Voltage Boost LED Driver featuring the LT3754. The LT3754 drives up to 50mA per string and has a maximum LED string voltage of 45V. The VIN terminal is powered from an 8V to 14V input supply and is distinct from the 24V PVIN supply (20V to 28V) for best thermal performance. Overvoltage protection is set at 55V in case the LEDs are removed from the circuit. If the LEDs are opened, the FAULT terminal output flag goes low and reports the fault condition. If one or more of the 16 LED channels is not used, its LED pin or terminal should be tied to VOUT (LED+) to disable it. Multiple channels can be tied in parallel by tying their LED1-LED16 pins together.
