The XL3001 is a 220 KHz fixed frequency PWM buck (step-down) LED constant current driver, capable of driving a 3A load with high efficiency, low ripple and excellent line and load regulation. Requiring a minimum number of external components, the regulator is simple to use and include internal frequency compensation and a fixed-frequency oscillator.
The PWM control circuit is able to adjust the duty ratio linearly from 0 to 100%. An over current protection function is built inside. When short protection function happens, the operation frequency will be reduced from 220KHz to 60KHz. An internal compensation block is built in to minimize external component count.

Typical Application Circuit of XL3001
Typical System Application (PWM DIMMING) of XL3001
PWM dimming function can be used in typical system application with external components. Changing the duty cycle of PWM signal can get different LED current. The PWM signal high voltage above 3.3V(referenced to ground, lower than VIN), Low voltage below 0.2V(referenced to ground).
