The is a DC/DC step up converter that delivers a regulated output current. Operation at a constant switching frequency of 1.2MHz allows the device to be used with very small value external inductor and ceramic capacitors. The CAT37 is targeted to drive multiple white lightemitting diodes (LEDs) connected in series and provides the necessary regulated current to control the brightness and the color purity. An external resistor R1 controls the output current level. LED currents to 40mA can be supported over a wide range of input supply voltages from to 7V, making the device ideal for batterypowered applications. A high voltage output stage allows to 4 White LEDs to be driven in series. Series drive provides inherent current matching. LED dimming can be done by using a DC voltage, a logic signal, or a pulse width modulation (PWM) signal. The shutdown input pin allows the device to be placed in power-down mode with "near zero" quiescent current. In addition to overcurrent limiting protection, the device also includes detection circuitry to ensure protection against open-circuit load fault conditions. The device is available in a low profile (1mm max height) 5-lead thin SOT23 package and in a TDFN (0.8mm max height) package.
