Electroluminescent Lamp Driver High Drive Capability for Low Voltage Applications

s Low Power to +1.7V Single Cell Operation s Low-Cost EL Driver Ideal for Backlighting s DC-to-AC Inverter Generates High Voltage AC to Drive EL Lamps s Externally Adjustable Oscillator s Low Current Standby Mode APPLICATIONS s Pagers s Watches s Backlit LCD Displays


The is a high voltage output DC-AC converter that can operate from a single 1.5 VDC power supply. The SP4428 is capable of supplying 200 VPP (typical), making it ideal for driving electroluminescent lamps. The device features 1A (typical) standby current, for use in low power portable products. One external inductor is required to generate the high voltage charge, and one external capacitor is used to produce a clock signal that generates the coil and lamp frequencies. The SP4428 is ideal for PDAs, pagers, and other low power portable applications using LCDs in dim or low light environments. The SP4428 is offered an 8-pin narrow SOIC. For delivery in die form, please consult the factory.

THEORY OF OPERATION The SP4428 is made up of three basic circuit elements, an oscillator, coil, driver and switched H-bridge network. The oscillator provides the device with an on-chip clock source used to control the charge and discharge phases for the coil and lamp. An external capacitor connected between pins 1 and VSS allows the user to vary the oscillator frequency. For a given choice of coil inductance there will be an optimum COSC Capacitor value that gives the maximum light output in a given lamp. The suggested oscillator frequency 28.8kHz (COSC=180pF). The oscillator output is internally divided to create the control signal f LAMP. The oscillator output is internally divided down by 6 flip flops, a 28.8kHz signal will be divided into 6 frequency levels; 1.8kHz, 900Hz, and 450Hz. The oscillator output (28.8kHz) is used to drive the coil (see figure 2 on page 7) and the sixth flip flop output (300Hz) is used to drive the lamp. Although the oscillator frequency can be varied to optimize the lamp output, the ratio of fCOIL/fLAMP will always equal 64. The coil is an external component connected from VBATTERY to pin 3 of the SP4428. Energy is developed in the coil according to the equation L=1/2LI 2 where the current I is defined as I=(VBATTERY-IR-VOL)/RT. In order to maximize the

Pin 1 COSC- Connect CAP from VSS to Pin 1 to set Oscillator frequency. Pin 2 VSS- Power supply common, connect to ground. Pin 3 Coil- Coil input, connect coil from VBATTERY to Pin 3. Pin D1- Diode cathode connection. Pin EL2- Lamp driver output1, connect to EL lamp. Pin EL1- Lamp driver output2, connect to EL lamp. Pin 7 VDD- Power supply for driver, connect to system VDD. Pin 8 HON- Enable for driver operation, high = active; low = inactive.
