The MAX25014 is a 4-channel backlight driver IC with boost controller for automotive displays. The integrated current outputs can sink up to 150mA LED current each. The device accepts a wide 2.5V to 36V input volt­age range and withstands automotive load-dump events.

The internal current-mode switching DC-DC controller supports boost or SEPIC topologies and operates in the 400kHz to 2.2MHz frequency range. Integrated spread spectrum helps reduce EMI. An adaptive output-voltage-control scheme minimizes power dissipation in the LED current-sink paths.

Control is included for an external nMOSFET series switch to reduce quiescent current when the backlight is off and to disconnect the boost converter in the case of a fault.

The device features I2C-controlled pulse-width-modu­lation (PWM) dimming and hybrid dimming. In either case, the minimum pulse width is 500ns. Phase-shifted dimming of the strings is incorporated for lower EMI.

The MAX25014 is available in a 24-pin TQFN or 24-pin side-wettable TQFN (SWTQFN) package and operates over the -40°C to +125°C temperature range.

Product Detail

The MAX25014 evaluation kit (EV kit) demonstrates the MAX25014, integrated 4-channel high-brightness LED driver with boost controller and I2C interface for automotive displays.

The EV kit operates from a DC supply voltage between 2.5V and 36V and the switching frequency can be either set at 2.2MHz or at 400kHz. The EV kit can only be configured to operate in I2C mode. Spread-spectrum mode (SSM) is enabled by default for EMI improvement, but it can be disabled by acting on a register bit. The EV kit demonstrates phase-shifted pulse-width modulation (PWM) dimming. Dimming can be performed either externally using a PWM signal applied to the DIM PCB pad or internally by programming the desired dimming frequency and individual duty cycle via I2C. The hybrid dimming feature can also be enabled through a register bit to reduce EMI. The EV kit also demonstrates short-LED, open-LED, Boost output Undervoltage and Overvoltage, and overtemperature-fault protection. LED current mea- surement and boost output voltage measurement are also demonstrated.

For operation at switching frequencies other than 2.2MHz or 400kHz, the external components should be chosen according to the calculations in the MAX25014 IC data sheet.

The EV kit provides an I2C interface that can operate in conjunction with the MINIQUSB+* adapter board or a third- party I2C master. The EV kit also includes Windows®- compatible software that provides a simple graphical user interface (GUI) for exercising the features of the IC.
