38 VIN, 10 A Boost µModule Regulator - Ideal for Driving LEDs

Analog Devices announces the Power by Linear™ LTM8005 boost DC/DC µModule® (power module) regulator designed for driving LEDs. The LTM8005 includes a DC/DC controller, power switch, Schottky diode and current sense resistor in a 9x11.25x2.22 mm BGA package.

Features:
•    Wide Input Voltage Range: 5 V to 38 V
•    40 V, 10A Internal Power Switch
•    3,000:1 True Color PWM™ Dimming
•    Internal 40 V Switch for PWM & Output Disconnect
•    Internal Spread Spectrum Frequency Modulation
•    Open LED Protection with OPENLED Flag
•    Short-Circuit Protection with SHORTLED Flag
•    Input & Output Current Reporting
•    9x11.25x2.22 mm BGA Package

Applications:
•    High Power LED, High Voltage LED
•    Accurate Current-Limited Voltage Regulators

The LTM8005 operates from a 5 V to 38 V input voltage range and can deliver up to 1.6 A of regulated current at an output voltage of up to 38 V. An Inductor is external, enabling the LTM8005 to easily configure in different operation modes including boost, buck-boost, buck and SEPIC topologies with a coupled inductor.

The high reliability H-grade version guarantees operation from –40°C to 150°C. The wide input voltage range and 150°C operation make this µModule LED driver ideal for automotive and industrial lighting applications.

The operating frequency is adjustable from 100 kHz to 1 MHz, and built-in spread spectrum frequency modulation improves electromagnetic compatibility performance. Brightness of the LEDs can be controlled by the analog CTRL pin and by PWM dimming with a range up to 3,000:1. The LTM8005 provides safety features such as output disconnect short-circuit protection, open LED protection, programmable input current limit, as well as, input and output current reporting.

The E and I grades of the LTM8005 operate from –40°C to 125°C, and up to 150°C for the H grade.
