AS3833 LED Driver

6 channel high-precision LED controller for 3D-LCD backlight with integrated step-up controller


The AS3833 is a 6 channel high precision LED controller with PWM input for driving external bipolar transistors in LED backlight panels, also optimized for 2D and 3D operation in TV applications. The integrated step-up controller provides the necessary output voltage for the LED string supply. The SMPS feedback control optimizes the power efficiency by adjusting the LED string supply voltage.
