Holtek HT7L4091 Universal High Brightness LED Lighting Control Solution
Holtek’s HT7L4091 is a general-purpose PWM controller for high-brightness LED lighting control. It is a control chip with cycle-by-cycle current control, peak current control method combined with a fixed off-time. The HT7L4091 includes LED open-circuit protection, over-temperature protection, under-voltage protection, and enhanced short-circuit protection. It is suitable for general lighting such as LED tubes and light bulbs; it is also suitable for different applications such as advertising billboard backlighting and large-size LCD backlighting. This article introduces the main features of the HT7L4091, the block diagram and various typical application circuits.
HT7L4091: Universal Step-Down PWM Control For High Brightness LED Lighting Control
The HT7L4091 device provides a low-cost solution for active current mode PWM controls of High Intensity LED drive systems supplied by either AC or DC line power lines. The device operates in constant off-time mode which is suitable for buck LED drivers. The low start-up and operating currents provides flexible power requirements for high efficiency or low cost applications. The switch frequency off-time can be programmed using an external resistor. The peak current mode control achieves good output current regulation without requiring loop compensations for a wide range of input voltages.
Included in the device is a PWM dimming input which can accept an external control signal with a duty ratio from 0 to 100%. The output current can be programmed from 0 to 250mA by applying an external control voltage on the linear dimming control input.
The device includes a frequency jitter function which helps to reduce EMI power supply emissions. from damage should the LEDs be short circuited. .
The device requires a minimum number of external standard components and is available in an 8-pin NSOP package for small area PCB applications.
