Part Number: TLC5944
Hi, I'd like some input on how to read the supply current specs for the TLC5944 led driver.
Kenneth Du replied (in now locked thread):
Icc3/Icc4 is with LEDs all on of full greyscale while Icc1/Icc2 is without any LED's ON since BLANK is high.Rief changes the Reference Current in IC and will cause Typ/Max's cahnge. You can refer to the function block diagram.
- Icc3/Icc4, please clarify why the numbers are different as only the Riref resistor has changed (the numbers in the table I assume excludes the actual LED's)
- If we lower DCn (dot correction current register) to say half of the configured Riref, will this also lower the current consumption of the led-driver itself?
- As Icc1/Icc2 will show an increase in quiescent current when led's are off (blank is high), is there a way to reduce the quiescent purely in software? (i.e. I don't want to switch the supply off, nor trying to actively increase the resistance of Riref)
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

Ok, thanks Kenneth,
So, any other ways to reduce the standby current of this part (without cutting the power that is)!?
i.e. something we can do via the SPI/Serial pins to reduce the unwanted 5-10mA Icc2 current...
ps. our application is battery-powered by a Li-Po battery.
Understand your requirement but there is no other good way to reduce the Icc current since that's the need of internal circuit.
Interesting, I didn't see these before,
- are these new parts?
- identical in function!?
- for low-power applications, which led-driver from TI would you say is most suitable (still offering pwm + dot-correction, 16-24ch)
