The MAX25614 is a high-current IR LED/VCSEL driver for automotive driver monitoring systems (DMS). The MAX25614 features a Maxim-proprietary architecture that implements both a boost DC-DC and a buck LED driver using a single power stage. The IC can drive IR LED/VCSEL strings of up to 35V from a 4.5V to 36V input supply. The MAX25614 can drive up to 10A peak current to the IR emitter. The MAX25614 is designed for applications where the IR emitter is pulsed on and off, typically at 60Hz or the shutter speed of the corresponding image sensor. The MAX25614C/MAX25614D use fixed-frequency average current-mode control with programmable switching frequency options of 420kHz and 2.1MHz. Both an inrush current-limiting pFET and a low-side switching nFET are integrated.

The MAX25614C/MAX25614D incorporate analog control to set the LED current, boost current, and boost voltage. I2C-controlled variants are available as well, and are described in the MAX25614A/MAX25614B data sheet. A dedicated current-monitoring circuit is integrated to provide instantaneous and/or average LED current information to the microcontroller. The MAX25614 has an open-drain fault output that asserts low in case of open-LED, LED overcurrent, excessive LED on-time, LEDN short-to-battery, boost UV/OV, pFET timeout, or thermal warning/shutdown fault conditions.

The MAX25614 is available in a 28-pin, side-wettable TQFN package with exposed pad and is specified for operation over the -40°C +125°C automotive temperature range.

Product Detail

The MAX25614D evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a proven design to evaluate the MAX25614C/MAX25614D automotive infrared LED drivers. The EV kit operates from a 5V to 18V DC supply voltage.

The EV kit is configured to deliver up to 5A to a string of LEDs. The total voltage of the string can vary from 0 to 32V. The high current driver uses fixed-frequency average current mode control. The LEDs may be connected by using the on-board IR LEDs or using onboard external connection pads. The anode of the LED string should be connected to the LED1+ terminal. The cathode of the LED string should be connected to LED-. The LED current, input current, and boost voltage are all controlled through the analog inputs VSET and ICTRL. The strobe signal can be applied to the PWM input to set the IR emitter pulse duration and frequency. A fault flag is provided on the FLTB test point, indicating fault conditions such as LED short to ground or LED open.

APPLICATIONS
