Supertex Releases HV9910C Universal High Brightness LED Driver in an 8L SOIC with Heat Slug Package

Supertex, a recognized leader in high voltage analog and mixed signal integrated circuits (ICs), today released an additional package option for the HV9910C. The Universal High Brightness LED Driver is now available in a lead(Pb)-free/RoHS compliant 8-lead SOIC with heat slug package in addition to the 8L and 16L SOIC packages.

Features:
•    Switch mode controller for single switch LED drivers
•    Enhanced drop-in replacement to the HV9910B
•    Open loop peak current controller
•    Internal 15 to 450V linear regulator
•    Constant frequency or constant off-time operation
•    Linear and PWM dimming capability
•    Requires few external components for operation
•    Over-temperature protection

Applications:
•    DC/DC or AC/DC LED driver applications
•    RGB backlighting LED driver
•    Back lighting of flat panel displays
•    General purpose constant current source
•    Signage and decorative LED lighting
•    Chargers

The HV9910C is an open loop, current mode, control LED driver IC. The HV9910C can be programmed to operate in either a constant frequency or constant off-time mode. It includes a 15 – 450V linear regulator which allows it to work from a wide range of input voltages without the need for an external low voltage supply. HV9910C includes a TTL compatible PWM dimming input that can accept an external control signal with a duty ratio of 0 – 100% and a frequency of up to a few kilohertz. It also includes a 0 – 250mV linear dimming input which can be used for linear dimming of the LED current. As opposed to the HV9910B, the HV9910C is equipped with built-in thermalshutdown protection.

The HV9910C is ideally suited for buck LED drivers. Since the HV9910C operates in open loop current mode control, the controller achieves good output current regulation without the need for any loop compensation. Also, being an open loop controller, PWM dimming response is limited only by the rate of rise of the inductor current, enabling a very fast rise and fall times of the LED current. The HV9910C requires only three external components (apart from the power stage) to produce a controlled LED current making it an ideal solution for low cost LED drivers.
