E522.46 | 8 Channel LED Driver with I²C Interface


E522.46 provides eight linear high side current sources for
LED driving. Binning information for each individual LED as
well as various system configurations are stored in internal
E2PROM memory. The luminous intensity level of each LED is
adjusted by a common analog master current and an individual
PWM duty cycle, considering the stored binning information.
Supporting noise sensitive applications, external PWM
clocks can be applied up to 24kHz repetition rate.
Due to the synchronizable master-slave characteristic and
adjustable error handling with a common INTB error bus the
E522.46 is also designed to drive cluster applications and a
higher number of LED channels. For system setup and diagnostics
an I2C interface is used. An internal power management
system including a current source shut-off above
TJ=+165°C guarantees an appropriate power dissipation of
the system.
