36V, Dual Channel, 1.6A Synchronous, Buck LED Driver Sports I²C Dimming Control

 PDF

NORWOOD, MA - Analog Devices announces the Power by Linear LT3964, a dual channel, 36V, high efficiency, synchronous, step-down LED driver with internal 40V, 1.6A power switches and an I²C interface that simplifies LED dimming control. The LT3964 operates with a wide 4V to 36V input range, and features two independently controlled LED drivers that switch at up to 2MHz, resulting in a highly integrated, compact solution with small external components.

The LT3964 employs fixed frequency, current mode control and operates as a constant-current and constant-voltage source with accurate current regulation to provide optimal LED lighting in automotive, industrial and architectural lighting applications. Synchronous operation results in efficiencies above 94% with both channels at full current load.

Its 400kHz I²C interface greatly simplifies digital PWM dimming. A PWM signal from a microcontroller to the LED driver is not necessary; instead, internal registers are programmed with the desired dimming duty cycle, which is synchronized to the internal clock. This provides dimming ratios up to 8192:1 and eliminates beat frequencies caused when the PWM signal and the internal oscillator are not synchronized. Alternatively, with analog dimming, an I²C settable 8-bit scale factor sets the control voltage-to-LED current ratio allowing more control of analog dimming adjustments. 1000:1 external PWM dimming and 10:1 analog dimming are also provided.

The LT3964’s switching frequency is programmable from 200kHz to 2MHz or it can be synchronized to an external clock signal. LED driver protection features include open LED and short-circuit LED fault detection, and LED overcurrent and overvoltage detection, all of which can be reported via the I²C interface. Thermal shutdown provides an added layer of protection.

The LT3964EUHE is available in a thermally enhanced 36-lead 5mm x 6mm QFN package. Three temperature grades are available, with operation from –40°C to 125°C (junction) for the extended and industrial grades, and a high temperature grade of –40°C to 150°C.
