The LT3799-1 is an isolated flyback controller with power factor correction specifically designed for driving LEDs. The controller operates using critical conduction mode allowing the use of a small transformer. Using a novel current sensing scheme, the controller is able to deliver a well regulated current to the secondary side without using an opto-coupler. A strong gate driver is included to drive an external high voltage MOSFET. Utilizing an onboard multiplier, the LT3799-1 typically achieves power factors of 0.97. The FAULT pin provides notification of open and short LED conditions. The LT3799-1 offers improved line regulation over the LT3799, but is not designed for use with a TRIAC dimmer.
The LT3799-1 uses a micropower hysteretic start-up to efficiently operate at offline input voltages, with a third winding to provide power to the part. An internal LDO provides a well regulated supply for the part’s internal circuitry and gate driver.

Evaluation Kits (2)
Demonstration circuit 1816B is an off-line isolated flyback LED driver featuring LT3799-1. The demo board provides a single constant current output of 3A over an LED string voltage from 22V to 38V. It is optimized to operate over a wide AC input voltage range (90VAC to 305VAC, 47Hz to 63Hz). LED current typically stays within ±5% over the whole input voltage range. It provides a high power factor (>0.9) enabling a single design to be used worldwide. It is also designed to comply with the IEC 61000-3-2 Class C harmonics standard and the EN55015B conducted EMI standard.
