The MAX25512 is a four-channel white LED backlight driver with an integrated current-mode boost converter which operates over a switching frequency range of 400kHz to 2.2MHz and incorporates spread spectrum. Phase-shifting of the output channels is included as an option to further reduce electromagnetic interference (EMI).

The device provides up to 120mA per channel and includes a control output for an external nMOS series switch. It is capable of operating down to 3V after startup.

The MAX25512 has an I2C interface to enable flexibility of control and detailed diagnostics.

The MAX25512 is available in a compact TQFN package and operates over the temperature range -40°C to +125°C.

Product Detail

The MAX25512 evaluation kit (EV kit) demonstrates the MAX25512 integrated 4-channel high-brightness LED driver with I2C interface for automotive displays, and its stand-alone mode counterparts, namely the MAX25510 and MAX25511. The EV kit operates from a DC supply voltage between 3V and 36V, and the switching frequency can be either set at 2.2MHz or at 400kHz. The EV kit can be configured to operate in stand-alone mode or in I2C mode. Spread-spectrum mode (SSM) is enabled by default for electromagnetic interference (EMI) improvement, but it can be disabled either by acting on a register bit (MAX25512) or by properly choosing the resistor to be connected to the SET pin (MAX25510 and MAX25511).

The EV kit demonstrates phase-shifted pulse-widthmodulation (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 through I2C (MAX25512 only). The hybrid dimming feature can be enabled through a register bit to reduce EMI (MAX25512 only). The EV kit features a LED current foldback option either as a function of the temperature, by means of a negative temperature coefficient (NTC) sensor (not provided), or through analog dimming. I2C-programmable (MAX25512) or resistor-programmable (MAX25510 and MAX25511) automatic fading functionality is also available.

Finally, the EV kit demonstrates short-LED, open-LED, LED short to ground, boost output short to ground/undervoltage and overvoltage, and overtemperature-fault protection. For operation at switching frequencies other than 2.2MHz or 400kHz, the external components should be chosen according to the calculations in the IC data sheet.

The EV kit provides an I2C interface that can operate in conjunction with the MINIQUSB+* adapter board or a thirdparty 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 (MAX25512 only).

Note: The MAX25512 EV kit schematic and bill of materials (BOM) show only the MAX25512 (MAX25512ATG/V+) as U2, but there are no other differences if the MAX25512 is replaced by the MAX25510 (MAX25510ATGA/V+) or MAX25511 (MAX25511ATGA/V+).

*Note: To be ordered separately.
