Buck-Boost High Power White LED Driver

The LTC3453 is a synchronous buck-boost DC/DC converter optimized for driving up to 4 white LEDs at a combined current of up to 500mA from a single Li-Ion battery input. The regulator operates in either synchronous buck, synchronous boost, or buck-boost mode, depending on input voltage and LED maximum forward voltage. Optimum efficiency is achieved using a proprietary architecture that determines which LED requires the largest forward voltage drop at its programmed current, and regulates the common output rail for lowest dropout. Efficiency of 90% can be achieved over the entire usable range of a Li-Ion battery (2.7V to 4.2V).
