DC1612A - Demo Manual

DEMO CIRCUIT 1612A-A/B
HIGH FREQUENCY SEPIC LED DRIVER
LT3519-1/LT3519-2
DESCRIPTION
Demonstration Circuit 1612A is a fully integrated LED
driver with 750mA switch current featuring the
LT®3519-1/LT3519-2. The board is optimized to
drive an LED string of up to 16V at 150mA in a SEPIC
topology. The high input voltage range, highefficiency low-side integrated 45V 750mA power
switch and catch diode, integrated compensation, low
voltage floating current sense amplifier, high pwm
dimming ratio, overvoltage protection, shutdown control pin, analog LED current dimming control, and
fixed 1MHz/2.2MHz switching frequency make the
LT3519-1/LT3519-2 an extremely versatile and powerful high frequency LED driving IC.
DC1612A has overvoltage protection at 18V in case
the LEDs are open or not properly attached to the
terminals on the PCB. The shutdown function is activated by pulling the SHDN/UVLO terminal to ground.
The CTRL terminal can be used to analog dim the
LED current. The CTRL terminal is pulled up with a
resistor divider between PVIN and GND. As PVIN
drops below 7.4V, CTRL voltage drops below its fullscale threshold and the LED current scales back.
The VIN pin is tied directly to the PVIN terminal
through R8, a zero ohm resistor. The VIN pin and terminal can be separated from PVIN for some applications such as buck mode by removing R8. A few simple modifications can be made to DC1612A in order
to convert the board from a SEPIC LED driver to a
boost, buck mode, or buck-boost mode LED driver.
Please consult the datasheet for schematic details
and the factory for customization details.
The LT3519/-1/-2 datasheet gives a complete description of the part, operation and applications information. The datasheet must be read in conjunction
with this Quick Start Guide for Demonstration Circuit
1612A. The LT3519-1/-2 is assembled in a small 16lead plastic MSOP package. Proper board layout is
essential for maximum thermal performance. See the
datasheet section ‘Layout Considerations’.

QUICK START PROCEDURE
DC1612A is easy to set up to evaluate the performance of the LT3519-1/LT3519-2. Follow the procedure below:
sure that the input voltage does not
exceed 24V at all times.
1.
2.
Connect a string of LEDs with forward voltage
less than 16V (at 150mA) to the LED+ and LEDterminals on the PCB as shown.
With power off, connect a 6V*-24V input power
supply to the VIN (or PVIN) and GND terminals
on the PCB.

DC1612A-A. 7V is the minimum input voltage for
DC1612A-B. 24V is the maximum input voltage for
both SEPIC applications with 16V LED and 18V
OVP.
3.
Connect a 5V source to PWM and GND.
4.
Turn the input power on and observe the regulated LED current, the circuit efficiency, etc.
without looking directly at the LEDs.
5.
For PWM dimming, tie a 100Hz (or higher), 5V
PWM waveform to the PWM terminal and GND
and observe the PWM dimming LED current and
PWM gate waveforms.

TERMINAL OPTIONS
OPENLED – The OPENLED terminal is tied directly to
the OPENLED pin. If there is a open LED condition, the
terminal is pulled low. When there is no fault, the terminal is pulled up to VIN with a 100k resistor. This
terminal can be monitored with a voltage meter, tied to
the input of another device, or left floating.
SHDN/UVLO – This terminal is tied directly to the
SHDN/UVLO pin. A resistor divider from PVIN to GND
sets the voltage on this terminal/pin. These resistors
can be easily adjusted for both the UVLO level and the
amount of rising hysteresis. See the datasheet for details. The terminal can also be used to shut the IC
down and turn off the LEDs. Tie the terminal directly
to GND or place a voltage on the terminal below the
shutdown threshold of the IC in order to place the IC
in shutdown and turn off the LEDs.
CTRL – This terminal is tied directly to the CTRL pin. A
resistor divider from PVIN to GND sets the voltage on
this terminal/pin. PVIN below 8V reduces the LED current (analog dimming) below 150mA. The divider can
be adjusted for different analog dimming levels. Pulling the CTRL pin to GND turns the LEDs off. An exter-
nal voltage applied to the CTRL terminal can reduce
the LED current. See the datasheet for analog dimming details. It is okay to float this terminal.
PWM – This terminal is tied directly to the PWM pin
and to the gate of the N-Channel MOSFET in series
with the LED string. M1 requires a 5V gate drive for
proper operation, but a lower voltage MOSFET can be
used in its place. PWM dimming performance of the
LT3519-1/-2 is discussed in the datasheet. Make sure
to supply a proper PWM dimming voltage, frequency,
and duty cycle to the LT3519-1/-2 SEPIC application.
If PWM dimming is not used, the PWM terminal can
be tied directly to a 5V DC source. If this terminal is
left unconnected, the LEDs will not turn on.
VIN and PVIN – VIN is tied directly to the VIN pin of
the IC. PVIN is tied directly to the inductor. The two
are shorted together with a zero ohm resistor R8. R8
can be removed and VIN can be powered separately
from PVIN or VIN can be tied directly to the OUT terminal for buck mode operation with resistor option
R14.
