Each part comes in an 8-lead, power SOIC package. The only external component required is a single ceramic bypass capacitor, making the PCB designs extremely simple, and the same capacitor may be shared with several drivers. Separate Enable pins for each channel allow pulse width modulated (PWM) dimming, three-step linear dimming, or individual disconnection of any faulty LED string. Over-temperature protection circuitry shuts down all channels when the die temperature reaches 135 degrees C. Normal operation resumes when die temperature drops by 30 degrees C. The parts feature a 90V standoff voltage and a fixed drive current with a +/-6% tolerance over a VOUT range of 4-15V.
They are specifically designed for applications in low cost LED backlighting LCD panels, indicator lamps, decorative lights as well as general lighting.
"With the introduction of the CL3xx product family, Supertex further expands its line of high voltage and high performance LED drivers and strengthens its market position as a leading provider of high voltage LED driving solutions," states Ahmed Masood, Vice President of Marketing for Supertex. "The CL3xx product family features temperature compensation for consistently accurate drive current and independent Enable pins for each of the three channels to allow for design flexibility, ease of dimming control and disabling of any faulty LED string."
All products in the CL3xx family are available in 8-lead, power SOIC packages (CL320SG-G, CL325SG-G, CL330SG-G). The parts are Green and RoHS compliant. Samples are available from stock. Lead-time for production quantities is 4-6 weeks ARO. Pricing is US$0.90 each for the CL320SG-G, US$0.91 each for the CL325SG-G, and US$0.92 each for the CL330SG-G, all in 1K quantities.
