Pay special attention to selecting a suitable inductor, as shown on pages What value should I use for D? The simplicity is that there are always 3 LEDs in a row. Email Required, but never shown. Since I want to be able to run these at different currents, and several of the calculations call for the current, should I run the numbers for each of the 3 currents I’m planning on, and then get a part that would satisfy the worst case scenario? Right now I’m going through design example 1 and following the instructions on how to calculate the parameters for each component. I can find many types of LED on the street and I dont know the compatiblity of each one.

Hi there, I wanted to have an LED illumination on my aquarium as well, but I wanted it low cost and simple.

Driving W LEDs with lm

Or would just driving them at 1. Sign up using Facebook.

I would like to feed it into LM and have varying brightness from the Led. Test equipment, replica and original sci fi props and costume pieces, and whatever else I feel like at the time.

Sorry, I think I am still confused. Also, do I need any extra hardware to drive the LEDs with the lm?

Texas Instruments LM3406MHEVAL/NOPB, 1.5 A LED Driver Evaluation Board for LM3406

If you want to take a steady but variable voltage input, and dim the led by the range of the input, you would eld a circuit to measure the voltage, and produce a PWM signal lm406 the DIM pin. The simplicity is that there are always 3 LEDs in a row. I would use 3 small switches to then set the current. What value should I use for D? The product detailed below complies with the specifications published by RS Components.

The blue ones are fine without, ,m3406 they would need Save to parts list Save to parts list. I am not familiar with LEDs. It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter’s Law. Thank you for your feedback. The product does not contain any of the restricted le in concentrations and applications banned by the Directive, and for components, the product is capable of being worked on at the higher temperatures required by lead—free soldering.

Controlling led array with Arduino with LM

Driving W LEDs with lm Can I rephrase it 8. You have chosen to save the following item to a parts list:. Since I’d be PWM dimming them, the duty cycle would vary based on whatever brightness happens to work and it would change as they are fading on and off.


Add to a parts list. This particular one did list part numbers, but as I said most are no longer stocked. I find that that pin is left open in input voltage comparator for PWM dimming. The LM please use capital letters is a switch mode current regulator. I have a few questions since lee it.

Or does the switching regulation make it efficient enough that there won’t be substantial heat? Any common microcontroller should do.

Are there complete boards of the lj3406 available at a reasonable price? Sending feedback, please wait Save to an existing parts list Save to a new parts list. Specifically for the inductor and capacitors. I can find many types of LED on the street and I dont know the compatiblity of each one. The PWM signal turns it on and off.
