The MP3398A is a step-up controller with 4 current channels, which is designed to drive WLED arrays for large-size LCD-panel backlighting applications. It is flexible to expand the number of LED channels by two or more ICs in parallel sharing a single inductive power source. The MP3398A uses peak-current mode with fixed switching frequency. The frequency is programmable by an external setting resistor. The MP3398A drives an external MOSFET to boost up the output voltage from a 5V to 28V input supply. It regulates the current in each LED string to the value set by an external current-setting resistor. The MP3398A applies 4 internal current sources for current balance. The current matching can achieve 2.5% regulation accuracy between strings. Its low regulation voltage on LED current sources reduces power loss. The MP3398A can support both analog and PWM dimming independently to meet the different dimming-mode request. In addition, rich protection modes are also integrated including OCP, OTP, UVP, OVP, LED short/open protection, inductor/diode short protection.
