APEK6211GLJ-01-MH-DK: 0.3 ~ 3A @ 48V Max, 6 ~ 48V in


The A6211 is a single IC switching regulator that provides constant-current output to drive high-power LEDs. It integrates a high-side N-channel DMOS switch for DC-to-DC step- down (buck) conversion. The A6211 EVB (evaluation board) accepts input voltage from 6V to 48V to drive a single LED string. LED current can be from several hundred mA up to 3A, selected by jumper combination on the EVB. Switching frequency is fixed at 1MHz for the EVB, but it can be easily changed by changing a resistor (see data sheet for details).

For LED current regulation, the minimum input voltage should be at least 20% higher than the LED string’s operating voltage.
