The SGM3138 is a high performance white LED driver. It integrates current sources and automatic mode selection charge pump. The part maintains the high efficiency by utilizing a 1×/1.5× fractional charge pump and low dropout current sources. The small equivalent 1× mode open loop resistance and ultra-low dropout voltage of current source extend the operating time of 1× mode and optimize the efficiency of Li-ion battery in white LED applications.
The SGM3138 supports up to 6 white LEDs and regulates a constant current which the initial value can be set by an internal resistor. The part implements a 4-bit DAC for brightness control. Users can easily configure the LED current from 1.25mA to 20mA by a serial pulse. The dimming of white LEDs current can be achieved by applying a pulse signal to the EN/SET pin. There are totally 16 steps of current could be set by users. The operating voltage range is 2.7V to 5.5V. Internal soft start circuitry effectively reduces the in-rush current while both start-up and mode transition.
The SGM3138 is available in Green TQFN-3×3-16L package and is rated over the -40°C to +85°C temperature range.
