Product Overview

The LM3916N-1/NOPB is a Monolithic Integrated Circuit that senses analog voltage levels and drives ten LEDs, LCDs or vacuum fluorescent displays, providing an electronic version of the popular VU meter. One pin changes the display from a bar graph to a moving dot display. LED current drive is regulated and programmable, eliminating the need for current limiting resistors. The whole display system can operate from a single supply as low as 3 or as high as 25V. The IC contains an adjustable voltage reference and an accurate ten-step voltage divider. The high-impedance input buffer accepts signals down to ground and up to within 1.5V of the positive supply. Further, it needs no protection against inputs of ±35V. The input buffer drives 10 individual comparators referenced to the precision divider. Accuracy is typically better than 0.2dB. The LM3916 is extremely easy to apply. A 1.2V full-scale meter requires only one resistor in addition to the ten LEDs.

  • Inputs operate down to ground
  • Input withstands ±35V without damage or false outputs
  • Outputs are current regulated, open collectors
  • Directly drives TTL or CMOS
  • Output current programmable from 1 to 30mA
  • Expandable to displays of 70dB
  • Internal voltage reference from 1.2 to 12V
  • Operates with single supply of 3 to 25V
  • 10mA Reference load current

Applications

Power Management; Metering; Audio
Device has limited built-in ESD protection. The leads should be shorted together or the device placed in conductive foam during storage or handling to prevent electrostatic damage to the MOS gates.
