High power white LED SuperCap driver with I²C interface
  • active Active

The STCF04 is a dedicated and space optimized high efficiency solution for driving a flash LED module in cameras, phones, PDAs and other handheld devices using the SuperCap technology. It is based on a DC-DC buck-boost converter, which ensures a proper and efficient charging control and monitoring of the SuperCap in the whole battery voltage range. The output current control ensures a good current regulation over the forward voltage spread characteristics of the flash LEDs in Torch and Flash mode operation. The SuperCap charging current is limited to a defined value which avoids overload of the battery. The SuperCap discharge current flows through the LEDs and the external MOSFET which must be chosen according to the desired flash current.
