Whenever a lighting application, such as street lighting for example, requires an elevated number of LEDs, there are basically two solutions: the first is to connect all the diodes in series in a single "string"; the second is to place several strings in parallel with fewer elements in each one.
This design was developed to minimize the current spikes coming out of an electronic transformer to less than 5A, which is a typical transformer rating, when driving an LED MR16 circuit. The off the shelf LED MR16 solutions exhibit spikes that significantly exceed a transformers maximum rated output current which will degrade the reliability of the transformer and reduce its operating lifetime.

This evaluation board demonstrates the high power efficiency and outstanding output current accuracy of the LM3464A typical application circuit. With four LED strings connected, the total output power is about 50W. The schematic, bill of material and PCB layout drawing of the LM3464A evaluation board are provided in this document.
Demonstration circuit 1160 is a full-featured LED driver with 2.3A switch current featuring the LT®3518. The board is optimized to drive a 330mA LED string with a total LED voltage between the input voltage and 40V in a boost topology. The high input voltage range, high efficiency low side internal 2.3A NPN power switch, low voltage floating current sense amplifier, soft-start, high side PMOS PWM…
* The eval board must be modified for 350mA output. The Transformer/Dual inductor and sense resistor(s). This circuit is intended for driving high power LEDs, such as the Cree XLAMP™ series, Lumileds Luxeon™ Rebel and K2 and OSRAM, Golden and Platinum Dragon™ as well as the OSTAR™.
The evaluation board is designed to display the full functionality of L5973D as a LED driver to drive one to three 1W, 3W as well as 5W LEDs at 12Vac input. The components selected for the demo board are optimized for 5W LED driver application.
The LM3402 circuit and BOM have been designed to provide a constant forward current of 350 mA to a single LED with a forward voltage of approximately 3.5V. (Typical of white, blue, and green LEDs using InGaN technology.)
The LM3404HV circuit and BOM have been designed to provide a constant forward current of 1.0A to a single LED with a forward voltage of approximately 3.7V from an input of 48V ±10%. Over the input voltage range of 6V to 75V the average LED current, IF, is 1.0A ±10%, the ripple current, ΔiF, will not exceed 400 mAP-P, and the switching frequency is 200 kHz ± 10%.
