I need to design a Backlight Driver which has to have high brightness.
These are the equipments I have in the design:

  • My Backlight String combined of 2 parallel of 28 serial LEDs(2 * 28 = 56 LEDs)
  • My LED Driver Chip is from Lutron
  • My supply is 24V 15A 350W SW?TCH MODE ADAPTOR
  • My switching FET Transistor is RJK5020. (see datasheet at:http://www.kynix.com/uploadfiles/pdf8798/RJK5020.pdf)

These are the features I need to cover:

  • I need to draw at least 350 mA from one channel(28 LEDs)
  • I need to adjust the Duty cycle 20% @ 120 Hz
  • When I draw 350 mA from 28 LEDs, output voltage will rise to about 28 * 3V = 84V + ~1V(Headroom) = 85V
  • I use 2 channels currently(each channel drives 28 LEDs in series) so 350 mA * 2 = 700 mA current needed to be boost
  • I will apply synchronised PWM dimmnig to 2 channels @ 120 Hz with 20% duty cycleSo designed this circuit (I took my reference design as TPS61196 EVM module). I followed the design guide carefully. Double checked the calculations. Yet, the circuit does not work. No strobe at all! Here is the schematic:You can download the SmartPDF file of both the schematic and the PCB here.

I tested the circuit in anyway I thought. Short circuits, wrong soldering, misplacement of components etc. checked for anything might be wrong, but everything was as in my design. So, I do not know what to do next. Maybe somebody here might have used the same chip and encountered the same problem. I am desperate here.
Only clue I have is this. I thought maybe, boost regulator is not working properly so I used another LED string which works with estimated 12V supply(When I apply 12V it lights up) and set the supply voltage to 12V. Because the initial IFB pin was 3.5V. Then I increased the supply voltage to 24V and I saw the initial IFB pin is increased as well to 16V. I could not see anything about this issue in the datasheet. I hope someone can help.
