The TPS61043 is a high-frequency boost converter with constant current output that drives white LEDs or similar. The LED current is set with the external sense resistor (RS) and is directly regulated by the feedback pin (FB) that regulates the voltage across the sense resistor RS to 252 mV (typical). To control LED brightness, the LED current can be pulsed by applying a PWM (pulse width modulated) signal with a frequency range of 100 Hz to 50 kHz to the control pin (CTRL). To allow higher flexibility, the device can be configured so that the brightness is controlled by an analog signal as well, as described in Application Information. To avoid possible leakage currents through the LEDs during shutdown, the control pin (CTRL) disables the device and disconnects the LEDs from ground. For maximum safety during operation, the output has integrated overvoltage protection that prevents damage to the device by limiting the output voltage to typically 18 V in case of a high-impedance output (for example, faulty LED). The TPS61043 device provides a solution for applications where higher LED currents or more than four LEDs in series must be powered.
