TI’ s solution - UV Sterilization Box

UV sterilization box was designed by the principle of using UV rays to kill bacteria. UV LED can produce UV rays of 260nm ~ 280nm which can cut off bacteria DNA / RNA directly and then kill bacteria completely, with a sterilizing rate up to 99%. The LED ultraviolet sterilization technology, first applied to US space water disinfection, now is gradually applied to our daily life. LED strong UV energy can decompose the molecular structure of odor, and effectively remove the musty odor of cosmetics, glasses, watches and other objects, which can be used for sterilization of baby products and everyday objects.

TI provides the system solution of UV sterilization box, and its functional block diagram is as follows.

The TLV704 series of low-dropout (LDO) regulators are ultralow quiescent current devices designed for extremely power-sensitive applications. Quiescent current is virtually constant over the complete load current and ambient temperature range. These devices are an ideal power-management attachment to low-power microcontrollers, such as the MSP430.. The TLV704 operates over a wide operating input voltage of 2.5 V to 24 V. Thus, the device is an excellent choice for both battery-powered systems as well as industrial applications that undergo large line transients..

Charging scheme

BQ25619 is a highly integrated 1.5A battery charging management and system power path management device, which is suitable for the single lithium-ion and lithium polymer battery. Its wide input voltage range of 3.9V to 13.5V makes BQ25619 suitable for a variety of applications. BQ25619 internally integrates input reverse blocking FET (RBFET, Q1), high side switching FET (HSFET, Q2), low side switching FET (LSFET, Q3), battery FET (BATFET, Q4) and bootstrap diode, simplifying the system design. The conduction resistor of BATFET is only 19.5mΩ, and the low-impedance power path management can optimize the operation efficiency, shorten the battery charging time and extend the battery operation time in the discharging stage. At 5V input and 1A charging current, the charging efficiency can reach 94%.. The I2C interface with charging and system settings makes it a truly flexible solution.

LED drive scheme

High-performance RGB LED driver is essential in smart home and other applications equipped with man-machine interaction. Led animation effects (such as flicking, breathing and chasing) can greatly improve the user experience, and meanwhile, minimizing system noise is also crucial.

LP5012 is a 12 channel constant current sink LED driver. LP5012 includes integrated color mixing and brightness control, and pre-configuration features can simplify the software coding process. The integrated 12 bit, 29kHz PWM generator equipped for each channel can make LED color smooth, vivid and eliminate audible noise. Each LED is controlled independently, which helps to achieve a smooth dimming effect. Independent color mixing and brightness control registers make software coding very simple. When the breathing effect of fade in and fade out type is taken as the goal, global R, G, B control can significantly reduce MCU load. LP5012 can also realize PWM phase-shift function to help reduce input power when multiple LEDs are turned on at the same time. LP5012 can realize automatic energy-saving mode to achieve ultra-low static current. When all channels are turned off for 30ms, the total power consumption of the device will be reduced to 10µA, which makes the LP5012 device become a potential choice for battery-powered terminal equipment.

TPS61169 is a boost LED Driver with a 40V, 1.8A MOSFET integrated internally, which can drive a single LED or LED string for small or large panel backlighting. The default white LED current is set through the external sensor resistance RSET, and the feedback voltage is stabilized to 204mV. During operation, the LED current can be controlled by a pulse width modulation (PWM) signal applied to the CTRL pin. The duty cycle of the PWM signal determines the feedback reference voltage. TPS61169 will not burst LED current, therefore, it will not generate audible noise on the output capacitor. To provide the optimum protection, the device integrates the LED open circuit protection feature, which will disable TPS61169 in the LED open-circuit state, to prevent the output voltage from exceeding the IC absolute maximum rated voltage.
