It works for 6 months now, so I think it is not all that bad.

I have an Ultimaker and a 3D engraver. 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 lm34406 I’m planning on, and then get a part that would satisfy the worst case scenario?

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

Sending feedback, lm34006 wait I want to have the option to drive them at capacity for adaptability of the lighting unit. This minimizes the response time needed to turn the LED array back on. I’ve been off and on reading the datasheet for the last week.

I have a few questions since reading it. Driving W LEDs with lm Save to parts list Save to parts list. I can find many types of LED on the street and I dont know the compatiblity of each one. I would like to preface this post with stating that I am pretty lsd to the world of electronics.


Or does the switching regulation make it efficient enough that there won’t be substantial heat? The foregoing information relates to product sold on, or after, the date shown below. It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter’s Law.

If the psu is at 12 volts, and the string doesn’t dissipate the full 12 volts, would I need to add a resistor in line with the LEDs, or would throttling it down lmm3406 pwm be enough protection?

Controlling led array with Arduino with LM

You agree that the Information as lm33406 here through an intermediary may not be error-free, accurate or up-to-date and that it is not advice. Add to a parts list. Yes, you must use the other components in the circuit diagram.

Please enter a message. You have chosen to save the following item to a parts list:.

Also, do I need l3m406 extra hardware to drive the LEDs with the lm? Therefore these may be stupid questions. To determine whether you will need a heatsink, calculate the temperature rise as shown lj3406 page 27 of the datasheet.

But if you learned how to read a datasheet it was worth it already: It uses a diode and a capacitor to smooth the input, and allow it to dim that way.


It is the switching regulator duty cycle, which depends on the ratio of input to output voltages with allowances made for the switch and the Schottky diodeand is not related to PWM.

Driving W LEDs with lm

The lm from what I understand would allow me to dim the LEDs hooked up to it with a pwm signal from the arduino; the voltage would be modified by the pwm signal and the current would be fixed.

If you want to take a steady but variable voltage input, and dim the led by the range of the input, you would need a circuit to measure the voltage, and produce a PWM signal to the DIM pin. Thank you for your feedback. Right now I’m going om3406 design example 1 and following the lsd on how to calculate the parameters for each component.
