SMALL PANEL BACKLIGHT LED DRIVER
The AL3050 is a current mode Boost-type LED driver with
programmable brightness dimming control for portable devices. With
a 30V rated integrated MOSFET and power diode, the AL3050 can
support up to 8 LEDs in series. The small solution size, advanced
dimming features and high efficiency are suitable for LED backlight
solutions for single cell Li-ion based equipment. The boost converter
runs at 750kHz fixed switching frequency to reduce output ripple,
improve conversion efficiency, and allows for the use of small external
The default LED current is adjustable by an external resister at FB pin
and the feedback voltage is regulated to 200mV typically. The
AL3050 provides PWM dimming mode and single wire digital dimming
mode for accurate LED current control from CTRL pin. In PWM
dimming mode, the feedback reference voltage is changed with the
PWM duty cycle proportionally and the available PWM frequency
range is from 20kHz to 100kHz. In single wire digital dimming mode, it
provides a programmable 32-step brightness dimming function with
the CTRL pin setting.
The AL3050 provides protection functions including Under Voltage
Lockout, Over Voltage Protection, Over Current Protection and Over
Temperature Protection to protect the circuit.
