The LM2755 is a charge-pump-based, constant
current LED driver capable of driving 3 LEDs with a
total output current up to 90mA. The diode current
waveforms of each LED can be trapezoidal with
timing and level parameters (rise time, fall time, high
level, low level, delay, high time, low time)
programmed via an I2C-compatible interface. The 32
brightness levels found on the LM2755 are
exponentially spaced (as opposed to linearly spaced)
to better match the response of the human eye to
changing brightness levels.
The device requires only four small and low-cost
ceramic capacitors. The LM2755 provides excellent
efficiency without the use of an inductor by operating
the charge pump in a gain of 3/2 or in a gain of 1.
Maximum efficiency is achieved over the input
voltage range by actively selecting the proper gain
based on the LED forward voltage requirements.
The pre-regulation scheme used by the LM2755 is
optimized to ensure low conducted noise on the
input. An internal soft-start circuitry eliminates high
inrush current at start-up. The LM2755 consumes
3µA (typ.) of supply current in shut-down.
The LM2755 is available in Texas Instruments' tiny
18-bump thin DSBGA package.
