THAB0022_THL3504_Rev.1.00_E_Brief THL3504 24-channel Constant Current LED Driver with LVDS Interface DESCRIPTIONS FEATURES The THL3504 is an LED driver with 24 channel constant current sink outputs. The constant current values for three output groups are determined by external resistors. T h e e m b e d d e d o sc i l l a to r a n d P W M c o n t r o l l e r individually generates 256-step brightness set by the dedicated registers for each channel. The serial interface of 2-pair LVDS lines (clock and data) features high-level noise tolerance, high-speed, and long-distance transmission. The LVDS allowing cascaded and multidrop connection offers the maximum flexibility for designers to place and connect LED drivers. The simple and one-way communication protocol is easily-controlled and requires less CPU resources. < Driver part > - Constant Current Output: 24 channels - Output Sink Current: up to 40mA/ch - Output voltage: up to 40V - Individual Brightness Control: 256 steps - Group Brightness Control: 64 steps - Output disable/enable < Serial interface part > - 2-pair Serial LVDS Input or 3-wire Serial CMOS Input up to 10Mbps - Bridge Function Converting 3-wire Serial CMOS Input to 2-pair Serial LVDS Output - Repeater function of 2-pair Serial LVDS Input / Output with Waveform and Timing Correction - Device Address Selection up to 62 addresses - General call to all devices APPLICATIONS Amusement LED Backlight LED Display Digital Signage Illumination Protection Circuits UVLO, Short Circuit Protection, Thermal Shutdown Supply Voltage: 3.0~5.5V Package: QFN 48-pin Exposed Pad Block Diagram OUT0~OUT7 REXT0 REXT1 OUT8~OUT15 OUT16~OUT23 Current Sink Constant Current Generator Current Sink Current Sink Oscillator PWM Controller REXT2 Registers Address A0~A5 SCL_INp Input Logic LVDS Input LVDS Output SCL_OUTp SCL SCL_INn Data SCL_OUTn SDA_INp SDA SDA_INn SDA_OUTp Re-timing SDA_OUTn SCK SCL CSn SDA SI MODE 3-wire to 2-wire conversion Copyright©2012 THine Electronics, Inc. 1 THine Electronics, Inc.
