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 wide range evaluation board showcases the LM3424 NFET controller used with a buck-boost current regulator. It is designed to drive 4 to 10 LEDs at a maximum average LED current of 1A from a DC input voltage of 10 to 70V.
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%.
The ZXSC400 is voltage mode boost converter in SOT23-6 package. Its low feedback voltage allows the current in a chain of LEDs to be set and accurately monitored with a single resistor with minimal losses. The ZXSC400EV4 is configured as a boost converter to drive a 1W LED from two NiCd / NiMH batteries.
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.)
* For Constant Current, the board must be modified as described on page 8 of the user guide. * Streetlight applications require that the power supply designed to power an LED lamp must have high efficiency and at least an equivalent lifetime in order to guarantee maintenance-free operation during the life of the LED.
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.
* 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™.
