The TPS7510x linear low dropout (LDO) matching
LED current source is optimized for low power
applications. The device provides a constant current
to up to four unmatched LEDs organized in two banks
of two LEDs each in a common-cathode topology.
Without an external resistor, the current source
defaults to factory-programmable, preset current level
with ±0.5% accuracy (typical). An optional external
resistor can be used to set initial brightness to
user-programmable values with higher accuracy.
Brightness can be varied from off to full brightness by
inputting a pulse width modulation (PWM) signal on
each Enable pin. Each bank has independent enable
and brightness control, but current matching is done
to all four channels concurrently. The input supply
range is ideally suited for single-cell Li-Ion battery
supplies and the TPS7510x can provide up to 25mA
No internal switching signals are used, eliminating
troublesome electromagnetic interference (EMI). The
TPS7510x is offered in an ultra-small, 9-ball, 0.4mm
ball-pitch wafer chip-scale package (WCSP) and a
2,5mm × 2,5mm, 10-pin SON package, yielding a
very compact total solution size ideal for mobile
handsets and portable backlighting applications. The
device is fully specified over T
