LED Driver Controller from Diodes Handles More Demanding Lighting Applications
By extending input voltage operation from 60V down to as low as 5.0V, the ZXLD1371 LED driver controller from Diodes Incorporated has been designed to handle as broad a range of applications as possible, including those subject to the greatest variance in input voltage, such as automotive lighting and 12VAC powered systems. Its ability to control an external driver FET in buck, boost and buck-boost driver topologies makes it an all-in-one solution, capable of driving as many as 20 high current LEDs in boost mode with a high level of accuracy.Empl
To further improve the reliability of LED lamp systems, the ZXLD1371 provides thermal management of LEDs via a dedicated external thermistor input, which combined with fault diagnostic outputs reporting LED load and driver status, helps to increase LED longevity. Switching at up to 1MHz, the TSSOP-16EP packaged LED driver controller will also help minimize circuit size by reducing the value of the external inductor.
The ZXLD1371 LED driver controller is priced at $1.30 USD in 1k quantities.
