Six-Channel White LED Driver for LCD TV Edge Lighting

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer Skyworks


Description :

The AAT2405 is a highly integrated, high efficiency white LED backlight solution for large size LCD panels used in
LCD TVs. This device operates from a wide 10.8V to 28V DC power source, making it ideal for operation with common
12V to 24V AC-DC power supplies used in LCD TV panels.

By controlling external power MOSFETs (such as the
Skyworks' AAT2490 high-voltage TrenchDMOS array), the AAT2405 facilitates 6 current sink channels to provide precision constant-current drive for strings of white LEDs, where the number of series-connected LEDs per string is only limited by the system LED voltage supply. Current in each backlight string and string-to-string matching is controlled using I-Precise™ sensing and control circuitry, a novel on-chip method to accurately control drain current in external discrete power MOSFETs independent of their construction and without the need for precision sense resistors.

LED string dimming is achieved by applying an external PWM signal to the AAT2405's PWMIN input pin. An internal clock and programmable phase delay function allow accurate PWM phase adjustment to each current sink or selectable banks of current sinks. The AAT2405 has signal feed through function outputs for PWM dimming and
the internal clock signals allow cascaded AAT2405 devices to successively synchronize for both channel phase and timing. The AAT2405's constant current sinks may be set for phase delays individually or in banks of 2 or 3 LED strings.

The AAT2405 provides a current sense feedback input and output feed through function so the LED string voltage level can be fed back to an external high voltage boost converter. This function permits as many AAT2405s as needed to be cascaded from a single power source. An additional ICSFB output enables accurate feedback
using generic SMPS converters.

An IC enable pin is provided as a master LED on/off function that may be toggled by an external system controller.

The AAT2405 provides an active low fault output. If an LED short or open circuit is detected or if an over-temperature condition arises, the fault is reported on the FAULT pin. Thermal protection circuitry shuts down the current sinks in the event of an over-temperature condition.

The AAT2405 is available in the Pb-free 44 pin 10x10mm E-LQFP package with exposed pad.
