The MAX20069 evaluation kit (EV kit) demonstrates the MAX20069 IC, which is a highly integrated power supply plus LED backlight driver for automotive TFT-LCD applications. The EV kit is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount PCB that provides a complete powermanagement solution for small-size automotive displays. The EV kit demonstrates one buck-boost converter, one boost converter, two gate-voltage controllers, and a boost converter that powers a quad-string LED driver.
The EV kit can be configured to operate in stand-alone mode or in I2C mode.
The TFT bias portion of the EV kit operates from a 2.8V to 5.5V DC supply voltage. The step-up switching regulator (POS) is configured for a 4V to 18V output that provides up to 150mA. The inverting buck-boost converter (NEG) generates a negative output that tracks the positive output (down to a minimum of -7V) and provides up to 100mA. The gate-driver power supplies consist of regulated charge pumps that generate +28V (GVDD) and -21.5V (GVEE) and can deliver up to 3mA each.
The LED driver portion of the EV kit operates from a DC supply voltage of 4.5V up to the HB LED string-forward voltage. The EV kit can withstand a 52V load-dump condition. The EV kit also demonstrates the IC’s features, such as adaptive voltage optimization, Overvoltage and Undervoltage protection, cycle-by-cycle current limit, thermal shutdown, and digital PWM dimming operation using a digital PWM input signal to control the brightness of the HB LEDs.
The EV kit provides an I2C interface that can operate in conjunction with the MINIQUSB+ adapter board or a third party I2C master. The EV kit also includes Windows®- compatible software that provides a simple graphical user interface (GUI) for exercising the features of the IC.
