MAX6972, MAX6973 16-Output PWM LED Drivers For Message Boards

The MAX6972 MAX6973 precision current-sinking, 16-output PWM LED Drivers drive red, green, and/or blue LEDs for full-color graphic message boards and Video Displays Each output has an individual 12-bit MAX6972 or 14-bit MAX6973 PWM-intensity (hue) control and 7-bit MAX6972 or 5-bit MAX6973 global PWM intensity (luminance) control. The MAX6972 MAX6973 also feature open-circuit LED fault-detection circuitry, as well as a watchdog Timer
The driver has two banks of eight outputs, with each bank intended to drive a different color in RGB applications. The standard application uses three MAX6972 MAX6973s to drive eight RGB LEDs The full-scale current for each bank of eight outputs is adjustable from 11mA to 55mA in 256 steps (0.3125% per step) to calibrate each color.
The MAX6972 MAX6973 CAN optionally multiplex by using outputs active-low MUX0 and active-low MUX1, which each drive an external PNP Transistor Multiplexing doubles the MAX6972 MAX6973 drive capability to 32 LEDs
The MAX6972 MAX6973 operate from a 3.0V to 3.6V power supply. The LED power supply CAN range from 3V to 7V. The LED Drivers require only 0.8V headroom above the LEDs' forward-voltage drop. Using a separate LED supply voltage for each LED minimizes power consumption.
The serial Interface uses differential signaling for the high-speed Clock and data signals to reduce EMI and improve signal integrity. The MAX6972 MAX6973 Buffer all Interface signals to simplify cascading devices in modules that use a large number of drivers.
An internal watchdog Timer when enabled, automatically clears the pixel-data Registers and blanks the Display if any of the signal inputs fail to toggle within 40ms.
The MAX6972 MAX6973 are available in 32-pin TQFN packages and operate over the -40C to +125C temperature range.
Refer to the MAX6974 MAX6975 data sheet for a 24-output, 6mA to 30mA software-compatible device.
