Description

The MCP1631HV Digitally Controlled Programmable Current Source Reference Design is used to drive and dim one or more power LEDs in a series or parallel topology (depending on the LED’s capability). The reference design may also be used to charge one to four cell NiMH/NiCd or one to two cell Li-Ion battery packs. The board uses the MCP1631HV high-speed analog PWM controller and PIC16F616 microcontroller to generate the proper dimming ratio for LEDs or charge algorithm for NiMH, NiCd and Li-Ion batteries.The MCP1631HV Digitally Controlled Programmable Current Source Reference Design is used to evaluate Microchip’s MCP1631HV in a SEPIC power converterapplication. The MCP1631HV Digitally Controlled Programmable Current Source Reference Design is user programmable. Multiple user functions may be selected by re-compiling the source code. The board can drive LEDs or charge NiMH, NiCd or Li-Ion batteries with a maximum current of 1A. In Charger Mode, the MCP1631HV Digitally Controlled Programmable Current Source Reference Design provides a constant current charge (Ni-based chemistry) and constant current/constant voltage(Li-Ion based chemistry) with preconditioning, cell temperature monitoring (for Ni-based) and battery pack fault monitoring. In LED Driver mode, the MCP1631HVDigitally Controlled Programmable Current Source Reference Design provides a constant user defined current and a 10:1 dimming ratio. The dimming ratio and maximum current can be selected before compiling the source code. The board has LED indicators to provide multiple fault indication.
