The LM3492 integrates a boost converter and a two-channel current regulator to implement a high efficient and cost effective LED driver for driving two individually dimmable LED strings with a maximum power of 15W and an output voltage of up to 65V. The boost converter employs a proprietary Projected- On-Time control method to give a fast transient response with no compensation required, and a nearly constant switching frequency programmable from 200 kHz to 1 MHz. The application circuit is stable with ceramic capacitors and produces no audible noise on dimming.
This design is for the LM3492 which drives 2 LED strings, each of which can consist of 10 LEDs running at 150 mA and the forward voltage of each LED is typically 3.8V. The input voltage is from 9V to 16V. The evaluation board schematic, PCB layout, Bill of Materials, and circuit design descriptions are shown. Typical performance and operating waveforms are also provided for reference.
