National Semiconductor Application Note 1839 Matthew Reynolds December 10, 2008 Introduction Thermal Performance The LM3402/02HV and LM3404/04HV are buck regulator derived controlled current sources designed to drive a series string of high power, high brightness LEDs (HBLEDs) at forward currents of up to 0.5A (LM3402/02HV) or 1.0A (LM3404/04HV). This evaluation board demonstrates the enhanced thermal performance, fast dimming, and true constant LED current capabilities of the LM3402 and LM3404 devices. The PSOP-8 package is pin-for-pin compatible with the SO-8 package with the exception of the thermal pad, or exposed die attach pad (DAP). The DAP is electrically connected to system ground. When the DAP is properly soldered to an area of copper on the top layer, bottom layer, internal planes, or combinations of various layers, the θJA of the LM3404/04HV can be significantly lower than that of the SO-8 package. The PSOP-8 evaluation board is two layers of 1oz copper each, and measures 1.25" x 1.95". The DAP is soldered to approximately 1/2 square inch of top and two square inches of bottom layer copper. Three thermal vias connect the DAP to the bottom layer of the PCB. A recommended DAP/via layout is shown in figure 2. Circuit Performance with LM3404 This evaluation board (figure 1) uses the LM3404 to provide a constant forward current of 750 mA ±10% to a string of up to five series-connected HBLEDs with a forward voltage of approximately 3.4V each from an input of 18V to 36V.

Buck Converter Inductor Current Waveform A voltage signal, VSNS, is created as the LED current flows through the current setting resistor, RSNS, to ground. VSNS is fed back to the CS pin, where it is compared against a 200 mV reference (VREF). A comparator turns on the power MOSFET when VSNS falls below VREF. The power MOSFET conducts for a controlled on-time, tON, set by an external resistor, RON. 30061602 FIGURE 2. LM3402/04 PSOP Thermal PAD and Via Layout Connecting to LED Array The LM3402 / 04 evaluation board includes two standard 94 mil turret connectors for the cathode and anode connections to a LED array. Low Power Shutdown The LM3402/04 can be placed into a low power shutdown state (IQ typically 90 µA) by grounding the DIM terminal. During normal operation this terminal should be left open-circuit. Constant On Time Overview The LM3402 and LM3404 are buck regulators with a wide input voltage range and a low voltage reference. The controlled on-time (COT) architecture is a combination of hysteretic mode control and a one-shot on-timer that varies inversely with input voltage. With the addition of a PNP transistor, the on-timer can be made to be inversely proportional to the input voltage minus the output voltage. This is one of the application improvements made to this demonstration board that will be discussed later (improved average LED current circuit). The LM3402 / 04 were designed with a focus of controlling the current through the load, not the voltage across it. A constant current regulator is free of load current transients, and has no need for output capacitance to supply the load and maintain output voltage. Therefore, in this demonstration board in order to demonstrate the fast transient capabilities, I have chosen to omit the output capacitor. With any Buck regulator, duty cycle (D) can be calculated with the following equations. 30061605 FIGURE 4. VSNS Circuit SETTING THE AVERAGE LED CURRENT Knowing the average LED current desired and the input and output voltages, the slopes of the currents within the inductor can be calculated. The first step is to calculate the minimum inductor current (LED current) point. This minimum level needs to be determined so that the average LED current can be determined. The average inductor current equals the average LED current whether an output capacitor is used or not. www.national.com 2 iTARGET x RSNS = 0.20V Therefore: Finally RSNS can be calculated. 30061606 FIGURE 5. ISENSE Current Waveform Standard On-Time Set Calculation The control MOSFET on-time is variable, and is set with an external resistor RON (R2 from Figure1). On-time is governed by the following equation: Using figures 3 and 5 and the equations of a line, calculate ILED-MIN. Where Where IF = ILED-Average k = 1.34 x 10-10 The delta of the inductor current is given by: At the conclusion of tON the control MOSFET turns off for a minimum OFF time (tOFF-MIN) of 300 ns, and once tOFF-MIN is complete the CS comparator compares VSNS and VREF again, waiting to begin the next cycle. The LM3402 / 04 have minimum ON and OFF time limitations. The minimum on time (tON) is 300 ns, and the minimum allowed off time (tOFF) is 300 ns. Designing for the highest switching frequency possible means that you will need to know when minimum ON and OFF times are observed. Minimum OFF time will be seen when the input voltage is at its lowest allowed voltage, and the output voltage is at its maximum voltage (greatest number of series LEDs). The opposite condition needs to be considered when designing for minimum ON time. Minimum ON time is the point at which the input voltage is at its maximum allowed voltage, and the output voltage is at its lowest value. There is a 220 ns delay (tD) from the time that the current sense comparator trips to the time at which the control MOSFET actually turns on. We can solve for iTARGET knowing there is a delay. ΔiD is the magnitude of current beyond the target current and equal to: Therefore: 3 www.national.com AN-1839 The point at which you want the current sense comparator to give the signal to turn on the FET equals: AN-1839 Application Circuit Calculations To better explain the improvements made to the COT LM3402 / 04 demonstration board, a comparison is shown between the unmodified average output LED current circuit to the improved circuit. Design examples 1 and 2 use two original LM3402 / 04 circuits. The switching frequencies will be maximized to provide a small solution size. Design example 3 is an improved average current application. Example 3 will be compared against example 2 to illustrate the improvements. Example 4 will use the same conditions and circuit as example 3, but the switching frequency will be reduced to improve efficiency. The reduced switching frequency can further reduce any variations in average LED current with a wide operating range of series LEDs and input voltages. Design Example 1 • VIN = 48V (±20%) • Driving three HB LEDs with VF = 3.4V • VOUT = (3 x 3.4V +200 mV) = 10.4V • IF = 500 mA (typical application) • Estimated efficiency = 82% • fSW = fast as possible • Design for typical application within tON and tOFF limitations LED (inductor) ripple current of 10% to 60% is acceptable when driving LEDs. With this much allowed ripple current, you can see that there is no need for an output capacitor. Eliminating the output capacitor is actually desirable. An LED connected to an inductor without a capacitor creates a near perfect current source, and this is what we are trying to create. In this design we will choose 50% ripple current. 30061615 FIGURE 6. VOUT-MAX vs fSW ΔiL = 500 mA x 0.50 = 250 mA IPEAK = 500 mA + 125 mA = 625 mA Calculate tON, tOFF & RON From the datasheet there are minimum control MOSFET ON and OFF times that need to be met. tOFF minimum = 300 ns tON minimum = 300 ns The minimum ON time will occur when VIN is at its maximum value. Therefore calculate RON at VIN = 60V, and set tON = 300 ns. A quick guideline for maximum switching frequency allowed versus input and output voltages are shown below in the two graphs (figures 6 & 7). www.national.com 30061616 FIGURE 7.

Rearranging the above equation and solving for tOFF with tON set to 510 ns AN-1839 Example 2 On & Off Time Design Example 2 Design example 2 demonstrates a design if a single Bill of Materials (Bom) is desired over many different applications (number of series LEDs, VIN, VOUT etc). • VIN = 48V (±20%) • Driving 3, 4, or 5 HB LEDs with VF = 3.4V • IF = 500 mA (typical application) • Estimated efficiency = 82% • fSW = fast as possible • Design for typical application within tON and tOFF limitations The inductor, RON resistor, and the RSNS resistor is calculated for a typical or average design. • VOUT = 3 x 3.4V + 200 mV = 10.4V • VOUT = 4 x 3.4V + 200 mV = 13.8V • VOUT = 5 x 3.4V + 200 mV = 17.2V Calculate tON, tOFF & RON In this design we will maximize the switching frequency so that we can reduce the overall size of the design. In a later design, a slower switching frequency is utilized to maximize efficiency. If the design is to use the highest possible switching frequency, you must ensure that the minimum on and off times are adhered to. Minimum on time occurs when VIN is at its maximum value, and VOUT is at its lowest value.

Refer to figure 10 for illustrations. The interval tD represents the delay from a logic high at the DIM pin to the onset of the output current. The quantities tSU and tSD represent the time needed for the LED current to slew up to steady state and slew down to zero, respectively. As an example, assume a DIM duty cycle DDIM equal to 100% (always on) and the circuit delivers 500mA of current through the LED string. At DDIM equal to 50% you would like exactly ½ of 500 mA of current through your LED string (250 mA). This could only be possible if there were no delays (tD) between the on/off DIM signal and the on/off of the LED current. The rise and fall times (tSU and tSD) of the LED current would also need to be eliminated. If we can reduce these times, the linearity between the PWM signal and the average current will be realized. Dimming The DIM pin of the LM3402/04 is a TTL compatible input for low frequency pulse width modulation (PWM) dimming of the LED current. Depending on the application, a contrast ratio greater than what the LM3402/04 internal DIM circuitry can provide might be needed. This demonstration board comes with external circuitry that allows for dimming contrast ratios greater than 50k:1 LM3402 / 04 DIM Pin Operation To fully enable and disable the LM3402 / 04, the PWM signal should have a maximum logic low level of 0.8V and a minimum logic high level of 2.2V. Dimming frequency, fDIM, and duty cycle, DDIM, are limited by the LED current rise time and fall time and the delay from activation of the DIM pin to the response of the internal power MOSFET. In general, fDIM 30061652 FIGURE 10.

VIN = 24V, 3 series LEDs @ 400mA 13 www.national.com AN-1839 inductor current from the LED string to the shunt MOSFET. The LM3402 / 04 is never turned off, and therefore become a perfect current source by providing continuous current to the output through the inductor (L1). A buck converter with an external shunt MOSFET is the ideal circuit for delivering the highest possible contrast ratio. Refer to figures 13-15 for typical delays and rise time for external MOSFET dimming. External MOSFET Dimming and Contrast Ratio AN-1839 when Q2 shunt MOSFET is OFF during fast dimming. This is an added benefit due to the fact that tOFF is greatly increased, and therefore the switching frequency is decreased, which leads to improved efficiency (see figure 16). Inductor L1 still remains charged, and as soon as Q4 turns off current flows through the LED string. 30061657 FIGURE 15. tD + tSD Graph Fast Dimming + Improved Average Current Circuit Using both the Improved Average LED current circuit and the external MOSFET fast dimming circuit together has additional benefits. If RON and the converter's switching frequency (fSW) is determined and set with the improved average LED current circuit, the switching frequency will decrease once VOUT is shorted during fast dimming. With MOSFET Q4 on, VOUT is equal to VFB (200 mV). The tON equation then becomes almost identical to the original unmodified circuit equation. Setting tON and RON: 30061662 FIGURE 16.
