Status: In Production
The MIC2297 is a 600kHz PWM boost-switching regulator that is optimized for driving 6-10 series white LEDs. With its internal 40V switch and a guaranteed switch current of 1.2A, the MIC2297 easily drives a string of 10 white LEDs in series at 20mA, ensuring a high level of brightness and eliminating several ballast resistors.
The MIC2297 implements constant frequency 600kHz PWM control. The high frequency PWM operation saves board space by reducing external component sizes. The added benefit of the constant frequency PWM operation is much lower noise and input ripple injected back to the battery source than with variable frequency topologies.
To optimize efficiency, the feedback voltage is set to 200mV. This reduced voltage reduces the power dissipation in the current set resistor, and allows the lowest total output voltage, hence minimal current draw from the battery.
The MIC2297 is available with output over voltage protection that protects the IC and external components in case of open LED conditions.
The MIC2297 has a junction temperature range of -40°C to +125°C.
The MIC2297 is a 600kHz PWM White LED Driver optimized for 6 to 10 series WLEDs. With an output voltage of up to 42V and a guaranteed 1.2A on the internal power switch, the MIC2297 can easily drive 10 WLEDs at 20mA continuous current. The MIC2297 features WLED brightness control using the BRT pin and has output over voltage protection (OVP) to protect the device in case the WLEDs are disconnected...
