I am trying to get a AL8861 LED driver hooked up. Right now I've connected it to a single LED (this one) to test (see circuit below). I eventually intend to connect it to a DAC5578 Digital to Analog converter to communicate via I2C. For now, I'd like to test if the lighting circuit works.
UPDATE: I found the primary issue - my board had an error with GND not being connected to the driver for that channel. Now I have light, but not very bright. Connecting VSET to GND or 3v3 doesn't seem to do anything. CH1+ reads 2.54v and CH1- is 0v. Still stumped...
I've connected the components and supplied 24v. As soon as I plugged it in, the LED flashed and then went dark. I've also tried connecting VSET to ground, and it begins to glow slowly but remains very dim. I tried connecting VSET to +3v and +5v (probably a bad idea) and it flashed again. Now when I connect VSET to ground I get no glow.
I get some weird results when I check the test pads voltages. Here are the readings:
- (+24v) 24.30v
- (VSET) 23.93v
- (CH1+) 24.30v
- (CH1-) 24.27v
I thought VSET would float. When I connect it to ground, it has ~60mA of current running through it.
Is my circuit wrong in some way? I appreciate any help. Thank you!
