Traditional single-segment Linear LED Driver needs to use higher Driver LED Current in order to increase brightness when LED lights up, so the drawback is the low efficiency of LED. EC4216C is a six-segment Linear LED designed to improve the drawback of single-segment Drive LED. The six-segment switch LED Driver is to divide traditional single-segment LED into six segments, and then conducts segment by segment according to the input voltage changes (D1->D1+D2-> D1+D2+D3 …….). Such an arrangement can overcome the Forward bias of LED, allowing the LED to light up when the input voltage is low, and thus increase the efficiency of the LED, but also no Over Driver LED is required. EC4216C consists of two portions, one is Chip power; please refers to Application Circuit (Fig1). In the Application Circuit, an external resistor R3 is used to set the operating voltage of Chip and the output current for D1~D6. The set method is as follows: two resistors R9 (with value 192K) and R9A (with value 88k) are set between Chip Pin1 (Pow) and Pin8 (Vref), and a reference voltage 2.61V is on Pin8. The relationship among Pow, Vref, R9 and R9A is shown as formula 1.
Fig-1 110VRMS Application Circuit
Therefore, where the external resistor R3 does not exist (Default), R=88k, and Pow=8.47V, and where R=38.5k (R3=68k//R9A), the Pow=15.56V. The second portion includes Segment Switch Circuit and LED Current Driver. Six segments will be conducted sequentially according to Sine Wave changes. When Sine Wave is under positive slope changes, the conducting way is as follows: D1, D1+D2, D1+D2+D3, D1+D2+D3+D4, D1+D2+D3+D4+D5, and D1+D2+D3+D4+D5+D6, and when the Sine Wave is under negative slop changes, then the way is in the opposite direction. The switch of those segments is carried out by Segment Switch Circuit. The conditions to switch two segments is that where ID(N+1)≧12mA is closed, D(N) ....Segment is turned off. Drive Current is relevant to Pow voltage; in Default value, the external resistor R3 of application circuit does not exist, Pow=8.48V. Pow pin=0V 2V 4V 6V 8V 10V 12V 14V 16V which the maximum current of each Segment (D1~D6) is 120mA. As for the relationship between Drive Current and Pow, please refer to Fig2.
