1 5, 6 Switch Pin. Connect inductor/freewheeling diode here, minimizing track length at this pin to reduce EMI.
2 2, 3 GND Pin
Dimming and On/Off Control Input.
Leave floating for normal operation.
(VCTRL = VREF = 2.5V giving nominal average output current IOUTnom = 0.1/RS)
3 4 Drive to voltage below 0.4V to turn off output current
Drive with DC voltage (0.5V < VCTRL < 2.5V) to adjust output current from 20% to 100% of IOUTnom
A PWM signal (low level ≤ 0.4V and high level > 2.6; transition times less than 1us) allows the output
current to be adjusted below the level set by the resistor connected to SET input pin.
4 1 Set Nominal Output Current Pin. Configure the output current of the device.
Input Supply Pin. Must be locally decoupled to GND with > 2.2µF X7R ceramic capacitor – see applications
section for more information.
Exposed pad/TAB connect to GND and thermal mass for enhanced thermal impedance. Should not be
used as electrical ground conduction path.

Stresses greater than the 'Absolute Maximum Ratings' specified above, may cause permanent damage to the device. These are stress ratings only;
functional operation of the device at these or any other conditions exceeding those indicated in this specification is not implied. Device reliability may be
affected by exposure to absolute maximum rating conditions for extended periods of time.
Semiconductor devices are ESD sensitive and may be damaged by exposure to ESD events. Suitable ESD precautions should be taken when handling
and transporting these devices.
