Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TPS61040
I am planning to use TPS61040 in my design. There are a few doubts.
Need to drive 4 IR LEDs in series(VSMY1850X01) with forward current of 100mA.
The system is powered by a Li-ion Cell.
These LEDs have a forward voltage of 1.65V.
How to calculate resistors R1, R2, R3 and R4?
I need PWM to control the intensity also. The minimum average current of 50mA and Max Average current of 100mA. Do these minimum and maximum values affect Resistor Values?
What is the purpose of D6? is it some kind of protection? Can this be omitted from BOM?
