MAX1573

White LED 1x/1.5x Charge Pump in UCSP and Thin QFN

Smallest, Highest Efficiency White LED Charge Pump Packaged in a UCSP™


Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.

Description

The MAX1573 fractional charge pump drives up to four white LEDs with regulated constant current for uniform intensity. By utilizing proprietary adaptive 1x/1.5x modes and ultra-low-dropout current regulators, it maintains the highest possible efficiency over the full 1-cell Li+ battery input voltage range. The 1MHz fixed-frequency switching allows for tiny external components and the regulation scheme is optimized to ensure low EMI and low input ripple.

An external resistor sets the full-scale LED current, while two digital inputs control on/off and select amongst three levels of brightness. A pulse-width modulation (PWM) signal can also be used to modulate LED brightness, requiring no additional components.

The MAX1573 is available in the tiny chip-scale UCSP™ (4 x 4 grid) and 16-pin thin QFN packages.
