DC/DC LED Driver in ThinSOT

Posted on Dec 14, 2012

The LT®1932 is a fixed frequency step-up DC/DC converter designed to operate as a constant-current source. Because it directly regulates output current, the LT1932 is ideal for driving light emitting diodes (LEDs) whose light intensity is proportional to the current passing through them, not the voltage across their terminals. With an input voltage range of 1V to 10V, the device works from a variety of input sources. The LT1932 accurately regulates LED current even when the input voltage is higher than the LED voltage, greatly simplifying battery-powered designs. A single external resistor sets LED current between 5mA and 40mA, which can then be easily adjusted using either a DC voltage or a pulse width modulated (PWM) signal. When the LT1932 is placed in shutdown, the LEDs are disconnected from the output, ensuring a quiescent current of under 1µA for the entire circuit.
