The MPQ3369-AEC1 is a step-up converter with six channel current sources, designed to drive white LED arrays as backlighting in small-to-mid-size LCD panels.
The MPQ3369-AEC1 uses peak current mode as its PWM control architecture to regulate the boost converter. Six channel current sources are applied into the LED cathode to adjust the LED brightness. It regulates the current in each LED string to the value set via an external current-setting resistor, with 2.5% current regulation accuracy between strings.
The MPQ3369-AEC1 employs a low on-resistor MOSFET and a low headroom voltage, designed for higher efficiency. It has a standard I2C digital interface for ease of use. The switching frequency can be programmed by a resistor, I2C interface, or external clock.
The device provides analog, PWM, and mix dimming mode with a PWM input. The dimming mode can be selected with the I2C interface or the MIX/AD pin. It also has a phase shift function to eliminate noise during PWM dimming.
Robust protections are included to guarantee safe operation of the device. Protection modes include over-current protection (OCP), over-voltage protection (OVP), over-temperature protection (OTP), LED short, and open protection. There is also an option that decreases the LED current automatically at higher temperatures.
The MPQ3369-AEC1 is available in QFN-24 (4mmx4mm) and TSSOP28-EP packages.
