1 IRS2980 Buck LED Driver Peter Green Under embargo until 10/25/11

2 Target Applications and Markets
Non-isolated LED drivers where input voltage > output voltage LED light bulb replacements (non-dimmable) LED tube replacements LED street lighting LED office light fixtures LED refrigerator lighting LED runway lighting Solar LED street light Gaming machines

3 Existing Solutions Passive LED driver circuits
Use diodes, resistors and capacitors only LED current is limited (many small LEDs) Cheap but poor performance and reliability Low-voltage Buck LED drivers Peak current regulated Buck LED drivers

4 Passive LED Driver Minimum cost solution No current regulation
LED current varies with line voltage LED current varies with temperature Low power factor / high harmonics Standard white LEDs not HBLEDs If one LED fails open circuit the product no longer operates Cannot comply with Energy Star

5 Peak Current Buck Regulator
Fixed frequency oscillator Buck regulator with low-side switch Can be unstable above 50% duty cycle Vin > 2 x Vout Ripple must be small so that Iav is close to Ipk Inductor needs to be large enough to maintain small ripple current  Accuracy vs inductor size tradeoff 5

6 IR Solution IRS2980: Trademark and logo for IR new LED driver family:
Available in SO8 package High-voltage Buck continuous mode LED driver (up to 375V continuous) Floating differential current sense Accurate constant current control (average current control) Internal HV regulator (no separate VCC supply needed) On board PWM dimming oscillator (not triac dimmable without additional circuitry) Frequency limiter (150kHz prevents internal regulator overheating and limits switching losses in the MOSFET and diode) May be used with passive valley fill PFC to obtain PF > 0.7 Trademark and logo for IR new LED driver family:

7 IRS2980 LED Driver Free running frequency
Buck regulator with low-side switch High-side current sensing Average current hysteretic control Stable over full operating range Higher ripple can be tolerated without excessive loss in accuracy PWM Dimming with analog control Inductor needs to be large enough to limit ripple current  Accuracy vs inductor size tradeoff IRS2980

8 How Does the Product Work?
Contains HV regulator for IC supply Uses Gen 5 HVIC technology Floating differential current sense for LED current sensing Hysteretic current regulation Free running operation (no Buck oscillator, no fixed frequency) Maximum frequency limiter (150kHz) Efficiency is best at high duty cycle where Vout is close to Vin Low-side MOSFET gate drive PWM dimming from external DC control voltage (0 to 2V)

9 Low Cost IRS2980 LED Driver Low cost passive “Valley fill” PFC can be used in off line Buck regulators. Provides power factor ~0.9. It is constrained by ripple on DC bus being regulated out to provide a constant output current. 9

10 Product Literature/Support Literature
Datasheet IRS2980 Application Note AN-1171 relates to reference design IRPLLED7 IRS2980 SPECIFICATIONS Input Voltage 70V to 240V (AC) Output Voltage 0V to 50V (DC) Regulated Output Current: 350mA Power Factor ~ 0.9 Dimmable by on board potentiometer - 0 to 100% Non-isolated Buck regulator

11 Typical Results (IRPLLED7 Demo Board)
Input = 60VDC Input = 180VDC Output = 20V / 350mA Output = 20V / 350mA Efficiency = 80.2% Efficiency = 75.3% Green Trace = Gate Drive Blue Trace = Output Current

12 PWM Dimming Option 0 to 2VDC analog control on ADIM input
Adjusts PWM duty cycle for dimming (0 to 100%) CRAMP determines the PWM frequency PWM direct input is possible through ADIM (replace CRAMP with resistor to set threshold)

13 PWM Dimming Analog or Digital dimming signal is applied to the DIM input ADIM voltage relationship to light output 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 0.2 0.4 0.6 0.8 1.0 1.2 1.4 1.6 1.8 2.0 Duty Cycle (%)  Percentage of Light Output ADIM pin voltage 13
