Features & Applications

The MIC2843AYMT TR is a high efficiency linear White LED (WLED) driver designed to drive up to six WLEDs, greatly extending battery life for portable display backlighting keypad backlighting, and camera flash in mobile devices.

The MIC2843A provides the highest possible efficiency as this architecture has no switching losses present in traditional charge pumps or inductive boost circuits. The MIC2843A provides six linear drivers which maintain constant current for up to six WLEDs. It features a typical dropout of 40 mV at 20 mA. This allows the WLEDs to be driven directly from the battery eliminating switching noise/losses present with the use of boost circuitry.

The MIC2843A features Dynamic Average Matching™ (DAM™) which is specifically designed to provide optimum matching across all WLEDs. The six channels are matched better than ±1.5% typical, ensuring uniform display illumination under all conditions. The brightness is controlled through an Ultra Fast PWM™ interface operating down to less than 1% duty cycle. The MIC2843A is available in the 10-pin 2 mm x 2 mm Thin MLF® leadless package with a junction temperature range of -40°C to +125°C.
