I have two question about ADP8140.



Can ADP8140  operate under 3-string?

Under 1-string open circuit(SINKx),





Absolute Maximum Ratings about SINKx is 21V(max).



If all LED gets shorted  when using 100V as power line we would see 100V on SINKx .

This condition of all LEDS short is valid when testing for system integrity and will exceed SINKxs Absolute maximum rating .
