The AL8807A is a step-down DC/DC converter designed to drive
LEDs with a constant current. The device can drive up to 9 white high
brightness LEDs in series from a voltage source of 6V to 36V.
The AL8807A has an extended CTRL pin voltage range; increasing
its analog dimming range to greater than 10:1. The improved analog
dimming range makes it suitable for a variety of lighting applications
requiring wide analog dimming ranges.
The AL8807A switches at frequency up to 1MHz with controlled rise
and fall times to reduce EMI. This allows the use of small size
external components, hence minimizing the PCB area needed.
Maximum output current of AL8807A is set via an external resistor
connected between the VIN and SET input pins.
Over Temperature Protection is incorporated so that should a fault
occur the device will automatically shut-down and only restart when
its junction temperature has cooled down,
