A8480
Boost Regulator for Display Bias or LED Driver
Features and Benefits
Description
▪ Output disconnect during shutdown
▫ 1 μA shutdown current
▪ 2.7 to 9 V input
▫ Operate with 1 or 2 Li+ battery input supply
▪ Output voltage up to 23 V
▪ 1.2 MHz switching frequency
▪ 1.5 A switch current limit
▪ Internal overvoltage and overtemperature protection,
and soft start
The A8480 is a 1.2 MHz optimized boost converter with internal
soft-start and compensation to support WLED, flash/torch,
and display bias applications. The input voltage range of
2.7 to 9 V supports either 1 or 2 Li-ion battery applications.
The high voltage integrated double-diffused MOSFET (DMOS)
allows output voltages as high as 23 V with a switch current
limit of 1.5 A, this increases the maximum quantity of LEDs
that can be used in series.
Package:
9-pin CSP (suffix CG)
10-pin MLP/DFN (suffix EJ)
with exposed thermal pad
To maximize battery life in the application, the output can be
completely disconnected from the battery voltage to virtually
eliminate leakage current in the system. The disconnect switch
can pass up to 80 mA current. For system protection, the A8480
has internal overtemperature and overvoltage protection.
The A8480 can be used as a general purpose boost converter
by taking power through the CAP pin. In this configuration, it
can provide up to 520 mA at 12 V with 5.5 V input voltage.
The A8480 is available in both 1.6 mm × 1.6 mm, 0.5 mm
nominal height CSP, and 3 mm × 3 mm, 0.75 mm nominal
height MLP/DFN packages.
Applications include:
▪ WLED flash/torch
▪ WLED backlight
▪ OLED bias supplies
▪ LCD bias supplies
▪ General purpose boost converter

A8480
Boost Regulator for Display Bias or LED Driver
Functional Description
The A8480 is a boost converter with output disconnect. The boost
stage boosts input battery voltage to a sufficient level to drive
an OLED or a set of series-connected WLEDs. This stage uses
1.2 MHz constant frequency, current mode control. Typical application circuits are shown in figure 1, and the Typical Applications
section.
When OUT1 is enabled and VIN is greater than VIN (min), the
boost stage is ramped-up with soft start, with switch, S2, completely turned on.
The A8480 provides protection against output overvoltage on the
CAP pin, overload, and overtemperature. Also, it has an input
undervoltage lockout to avoid malfunction and battery drain.
At light loads, instantaneous inductor current drops to zero. This
is known as discontinuous mode operation and will result in some
low frequency ripple. In discontinuous mode, the voltage at the
SW pin will ring, due to the resonant LC circuit formed by the
The constant voltage drive for OLED is provided through the
OUT1 pin. The internal switch between the CAP and OUT1 pins
disconnects the OLED when OUT1 is disabled.

When DIM is high and RFBADJ is used (R2 is configured in
parallel with RFBADJ in the circuit; see figure 5a), the output

The A8480 can be easily used as a dual OLED driver. In this

A8480
Boost Regulator for Display Bias or LED Driver
Applications Information
Component Selection
The component values shown in the application circuits will
be sufficient for most applications (typical application circuits
are shown in figure 1, and the Typical Applications section). To
reduce the output ripple, the output inductor may be increased in
value, but in most cases this will result in excessive board area
and cost.
Inductor Selection
The inductor is the most important component in the power
supply design because it affects the steady-state performance,
transient response, and loop stability. The inductance value, DC
resistance, and the saturation current should be considered when
choosing the inductor. The DC current of the inductor can be
calculated by:
IL_DC =
VOUT IOUT
VIN η
(3)
and the inductance value can be calculated by:
⎛
⎞
V
1
⎜⎜1 – imin ⎟⎟
(4)
V
f
OUT
⎝
⎠
where ∆i = (20% to 40%) × IL_DC is the peak-to-peak ripple current.
Lmin =
Vimin
∆i η
Smaller inductance values force the converter into discontinuous
mode, which will reduce the maximum output current. Larger
inductance values reduce the gain and phase margin, which will
result in instability of the loop.
The inductor should have low winding resistance, typically
< 0.2 Ω and low 1.2 MHz core loss for better efficiency.
The inductor should have a saturation current higher than 1.5 A,
in order to provide 20 V at the OUT1 pin, and 100 mA at 2.7 VIN.
For high temperature operation, a suitable derating factor should
be considered. Several inductor manufacturers, including:
Coilcraft, Murata, Panasonic, Sumida, Taiyo Yuden, and TDK,
have and are developing suitable small-size inductors.
Diode Selection
The diode should have a low forward voltage to reduce conduction losses and a low capacitance to reduce switching losses.
Schottky diodes can provide both of these features, if carefully
selected. The forward voltage drop is a natural advantage for
Schottky diodes and decreases as the current rating increases.
However, as the current rating increases, the diode capacitance
also increases, so the optimum selection is usually the lowest current rating above the circuit maximum.
The diode RMS current rating should be:
⎯⎯
IDIODE(RMS) = IOUT = IIN √ 1–D
.
(5)
Diode PIV should be higher than the output voltage on the CAP
pin.
Capacitor Selection
The input capacitor selection is based on the input voltage ripple.
It can be calculated as:
CIN(min) =
8
fSW
∆i
VIN(ripple)
(6)
where VIN(ripple) is the input ripple.
The output capacitor selection is based on the output ripple
requirement. It can be calculated by:
COUT =
VOUT –VIN
VOUT
1
f
IOUT
Vripple(pp)
(7)
where Vripple is the peak-to-peak output ripple.
In addition, the ESR-related output ripple can be calculated by:
Vripple(ESR) = IOUT
ESR
.
(8)
If a ceramic capacitor is selected, the ESR-related ripple can be
neglected, due to the low ESR. If a tantalum electrolytic capacitor
is selected, this portion of ripple voltage has to be considered.
During load transient response, a larger output capacitance
always helps to supply or absorb additional current, which results
in lower overshoot and undershoot voltage.
Because the capacitor values are low, ceramic capacitors are the
best choice for this application. To reduce performance variation
over temperature, low drift types such as X7R and X5R should
be used. Recommended specifications are shown in the table
below. Suitable capacitors are available from TDK, Taiyo Yuden,
Murata, Kemet, and AVX.
The output capacitor is placed on the CAP pin only. An additional
capacitor can be added on the OUT1 pin, but it is not needed for
proper operation and it cannot replace the capacitor on the CAP pin.
