STMicroelectronics STLED524 LED Display Driver
STMicroelectronics STLED524 LED Display Driver is a 5x24 dot matrix LED display driver that can drive each dot with a current up to 20mA. Rows of the matrix are multiplexed and each LED in a row is driven by a separate low-side current mirror. Current regulators are supplied by an integrated boost DC-DC converter. Its output voltage can be adjusted by the internal register to optimize efficiency according to the type of LEDs (their forward voltage). This reduces current mirror power dissipation and improves overall efficiency. The STLED524 also includes an internal LDO regulator, which can provide a supply voltage for additional circuitry. Maximum current, provided by each current mirror, is adjusted by RSET resistor. Current of each LED (dot) can be dimmed in 255 steps due to settings of internal registers.
