Maxim MAX16832A/MAX16832C Step-Down Constant-Current High-Brightness LED (HB LED) Drivers provide a cost-effective design solution for automotive interior/exterior lighting, architectural and ambient lighting, LED bulbs, and other LED illumination applications. The MAX16832A/MAX16832C operate from a +6.5V to +65V input voltage range and can provide an output current up to 700mA. They can be operated up to a temperature of +125°C, or up to a 1A if operated up to a temperature of +105°C. A high-side current-sense resistor adjusts the output current, and a dedicated pulse-width modulation (PWM) input enables pulsed LED dimming over a wide range of brightness levels. These devices are well suited for applications requiring a wide input voltage range. The high-side current sensing and an integrated current-setting circuitry minimize the number of external components while delivering an average output current with ±3% accuracy.
