A team of engineers is ready to answer your questions

16-channel, internal current sinks high power LED support

The iW7023 integrates 16 open-drain current sinks, capable of up to 150mA average current per channel to drive LEDs, two digital boost or buck controller interfaces to optimize system power efficiency, and two LDOs to provide all the necessary components for full backlighting management in edge-lit or direct-lit LED TVs.

Using Dialog's patented BroadLED™ adaptive switch mode technology, the iW7023 maintains channel-to-channel current matching of ±2% for high current matching at maximum efficiency. The iW7023 enables comprehensive PWM dimming in multiple modes and offers a broad range of protection features.
