AUTOMOTIVE GRADE 30V 1.3A PWM DIMMABLE BUCK LED DRIVER
The AL8807BQ is a step-down DC/DC converter designed to drive
LEDs with a constant current. The device can drive up to 9 LEDs,
depending on the forward voltage of the LEDs, in series from a
voltage source of 6V to 30V. Series connection of the LEDs provides
identical LED currents resulting in uniform brightness and eliminating
the need for ballast resistors. The AL8807BQ switches at frequency
up to 1MHz with controlled rise and fall times to reduce EMI. This
allows the use of small size external components, hence minimizing
the PCB area needed.
Maximum output current of AL8807BQ is set via an external resistor
connected between the VIN and SET input pins. Dimming is
achieved by applying a PWM signal at the CTRL input pin. An input
voltage of 0.4V or lower at CTRL switches off the output MOSFET
simplifying PWM dimming.
