The LTC3201 is an ultralow noise, constant frequency, charge pump DC/DC converter specifically designed for powering white LEDs. The part produces a low noise boosted supply capable of supplying 100mA of output current. LED current is regulated for accurate and stable backlighting. A 3-bit DAC provides output current adjust for brightness control.
Low external parts count (one small flying capacitor and three small bypass capacitors) and small MSOP-10 package size make the LTC3201 ideally suited for space constrained applications. An input noise filter further reduces input noise, thus enabling direct connection to the battery. High switching frequency enables the use of small external capacitors.
The LTC3201 contains overtemperature protection and can survive an indefinite output short to GND. Internal soft-start circuitry also prevents excessive inrush current on start-up. A low current shutdown feature disconnects the load from VIN and reduces quiescent current to less than 1µA.
- White LED Backlighting
- Programmable Boost Current Source
