LM3429BKBSTEVAL: 1A @ 28V Max, 10 ~ 70V in


This wide range evaluation board showcases the LM3429 NFET controller used with a buck-boost current regulator. It is designed to drive 4 to 8 LEDs at a maximum average LED current of 1A from a DC input voltage of 10 to 70V.

The evaluation board showcases most features of the LM3429 including PWM dimming, overvoltage protection and input under-voltage lockout. It also has a right angle connector (J7) which can mate with an external LED load board allowing for the LEDs to be mounted close to the driver. Alternatively, the LED+ and LED- banana jacks can be used to connect the LED load.

The buck-boost circuit can be easily redesigned for different specifications by changing only a few components (see the Alternate Designs section found at the end of this application note).
