I am currently working on a particular application where using 2 white LED as backlight, powered from 3V battery.
I am just wondering if TPS61043 is appropriate for this application (as it seems to be, at least from the datasheet).
My question is basically addressed to an AFE from TI (or anyone with experience on this device): I need to know if you have characterized this chip working with 2 white LED instead of 4.
An efficiency graph will be usefull, showing TPS61043 with 2 white LED, powered from 2V to 5V.
Thank you in advance for your quick support.
This family of LED drivers was designed to boost to much higher votlages. Although we have not tested it, I expect the IC to opearte but it will have lower efficiency. What efficiency range are you expecting/needing?
I would expect an efficiency of minimum 75%, up to 95%.
That this IC was not characterized when working with only 2 white LED in series (used as backlight for a small LCD), powered from 2,4V (2 NiHM accumulator in series) to 5V (USB).
Maybe not a full characterization is expected from Texas Instruments, but some measurements at the specified power supply voltages, at room temperature, showing Vin/Iin/Eff.
Although we did not expect customers to use the TPS61043 with only 2 LED (typical applications are 4 in series), the TPS61043 will work well with this application. You will be able to modify the existing TPS61042 EVM with your chosen capacitors and inductors and test its performance to ensure it meets your requirements. A TPS61043 EVM does not exist. The difference between the TPS61042 and TPS61043 is that the TPS61042 overvoltage protection is 29V and the TPS61043 overvoltage protection is 18V. Either will work for your application.
You can order the EVM from the eStore or contact your local TI representative for assistance. https://estore.ti.com/Default.aspx
