The TLC59284 is a 16-channel, constant-current sink light-emitting diode (LED) driver. Each channel can be individually controlled with a simple serial communications protocol that is compatible with 3.3-V or 5-V CMOS logic levels, depending on the operating VCC. When the serial data buffer is loaded, a LAT rising edge transfers the data to the OUTn outputs. The BLANK pin can be used to turn off all OUTn outputs during power-on and output data latching to prevent unwanted image displays during these times. The constant-current value of all 16 channels is set by a single external resistor.
