The Future of Analog IC Technology
Step-up, 6 strings, Max.45mA/string,
and PWM dimming, White LED Driver
The MP3387L is a step-up converter with 6-
channel current sources. It is designed for
driving the white LED arrays as backlighting of
middle or large size LCD panel.
The MP3387L uses peak-current mode as its
PWM control architecture. The switching
frequency can be programmed by a resistor. It
generates an output voltage up to 45V from a
3V to 26V input supply. The MP3387L
independently regulates the current in each
LED string to the value set by an external
The MP3387L applies 6 internal current
sources in each LED string terminal to achieve
a current balance with 3% current regulation
accuracy between strings. Its low 500mV
regulation voltage on LED current sources
reduces power loss.
The MP3387L features external digital PWM
dimming and analog dimming, both of which
sharing a single input with 25% PWM duty cycle
as a transfer point. The mix-dimming strategy
helps to improve the dimming ratio. Also,
MP3387L automatically transfers the PWM
input signal 100Hz to 20kHz frequency to
24kHz to 27.5kHz to eliminate the audible noise.
MP3387L has rich protection modes to
guarantee safety operation. The protection
modes include recoverable OCP (over-current
protection), OVP (over-voltage protection), OTP
(over-temperature protection), any string of LED
short and open protection.
