Fairchild Semiconductor’s LED Backlight Boost Switches Reduce Power Losses, Minimize Sub-Harmonic Oscillation in High-Power LED Applications

Integrated High-Voltage Dimming MOSFETs Provide Fast Dimming Response, Better Efficiency and Reliability

SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 1, 2012 — Designers of high-power LEDs are challenged with preventing power losses and sub-harmonic oscillations associated with inefficient discontinuous conduction mode (DCM) boost converters. Fairchild Semiconductor’s (NYSE: FCS) FAN7340 and FAN73402 single-channel boost controllers with integrated high-voltage dimming MOSFETs address these challenges by helping designers achieve greater efficiency, performance and better reliability in high-power lighting applications such as LED backlighting for 3D televisions and monitors.

These backlight driving boost switches use a current-mode control topology with programmable slope compensation to prevent sub-harmonic oscillation. Designed with an internal dimming and analog pulse-width modulation (PWM), these devices overcome the short falls of a DCM boost converter by achieving a fast PWM dimming response.

Both devices offer integrated protection features such as under-voltage lockout, open LED protection, and over-voltage protection that help to minimize component count. Additionally, these devices provide error prevention by generating a FAULT signal with delay if an abnormal LED string condition occurs.

Features and Benefits:

  • FAN7340: RDS(ON) = 3.4Ω at VGS = 10V, BVDSS = 400V
  • FAN73402: RDS(ON) = 1.0Ω at VGS = 10V, BVDSS = 200V
  • Wide-supply voltage range: 10V to 35V
  • Cycle-by-cycle current limiting
  • Internal soft-start prevents in-rush current flowing into output capacitor at startup
  • Programmable switching frequency

Packaging and Pricing Information (in US 1,000 quantity pieces)

Samples available upon request - Delivery 8-12 weeks ARO

  • Both available in a 16-lead SOIC package the FAN7340 is priced at $0.85 and the FAN73402 is priced at $1.06

Fairchild enables engineers to drive innovation in their designs by developing solutions like the FAN7340 and FAN73402. The company offers a broad portfolio of full range power semiconductor devices that cover high-, mid-, and low-power ranges to help designers maximize energy savings in virtually every power-sensitive application.
