The MAX1910/MAX1912 power LEDs with a regulated output voltage or current (up to 120mA) from an unregulated input supply (2.7V to 5.3V). These are complete DC-DC converters requiring only four small ceramic capacitors and no inductors. Input ripple is minimized by a unique regulation scheme that maintains a fixed 750kHz switching frequency over a wide load range. Also included are logic-level shutdown and soft-start to reduce input current surges at startup.

The MAX1910 has two automatically selected operating modes: 1.5x and 2x. 1.5x mode improves efficiency at higher input voltages, while 2x mode maintains regulation at lower input voltages. The MAX1912 operates only in 1.5x mode.

The MAX1910 and the MAX1912 are available in a space-saving 10-pin µMAX package.

Product Detail

The MAX1910 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested circuit board containing a complete circuit driving four parallel white LEDs. The circuit operates from a 2.7V to 5.3V input supply. A MAX1910 comes installed on the board, but the EV kit can also be used to evaluate the MAX1912.

Applications

  • Backup Battery Boost Converters
  • Cell Phones
  • Digital Still Cameras
  • MP3 Players
  • PDAs
  • White LED Backlighting
