High Voltage 8-CH LED Driver


Update Alert Share

The RT8561D is a 40V 8-CH LED driver capable of delivering 30mA to each channel with 10 LEDs (3.6V per diode), for a total of 80 LEDs per driver. The RT8561D is a current-mode Boost converter that operates at 1MHz, with a wide VIN range from 4.5V to 24V and an on chip current switch rated at 2.5A.

The PWM output voltage loop regulates the LED pins to 0.6V with an auto adjustment circuit allowing voltage mismatches between LED strings. The RT8561D automatically detects and disconnects any unconnected and/or broken strings during operation from the PWM loop to prevent VOUT from over-voltage.

The 1.5% matched LED currents on all channels can be simply adjustable with a resistor or a current sink. A very high contrast true digital PWM dimming can be achieved by driving the PWM pin with a PWM signal.

Other protections including adjustable programmable output over-voltage protection, LED current limit, PWM switch current limit and thermal shutdown are provided.

The RT8561D is available in the WQFN-24L 4x4 package.
