8bit Dot Correction, Grayscale PWM with Noise Reduction Technology
40V output, 18 Channel LED Drivers for Automotive and Industrial Applications
MILPITAS, Calif., April 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lumissil Microsystems today introduced the IS3xFL3265x family of LED drivers that feature high voltage LED channels with electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) reduction capabilities. The devices are designed for harsh and demanding environments, they integrate registers to adjust thermal protection levels with fault detection and reporting, and operate across the wide temperature range of -40°C ~ +125°C. This family of LED drivers are suitable for automotive and industrial applications requiring high voltage LED outputs to support a multi-count stack of LEDs per channel.
The drivers support 18 high voltage LED outputs which can be individually configured for optimal light output, whether performing RGB color or white illumination lighting. The high voltage outputs enable design engineers to stack multiple LEDs on the same channel for an increase in light output using a given LED current. This is a useful feature for applications such as industrial lighting which require individual control of 18 light zones. For example, a 16V LED supply voltage is sufficient to drive 4 white LEDs per channel (i.e. zone) at up to 60mA. These zones in turn can be independently adjusted with ON/OFF and dimming controls making for an exceptionally accurate light source.
Additionally a flexible bus architecture and built-in EMI suppression technology make these drivers ideal for automotive LED lighting designs; whether interior or exterior. The I2C or SPI bus protocols are supported by selecting the corresponding part number, IS32FL3265A for I2C or IS32FL3265B for SPI bus. The core functionality of high voltage outputs, individual channel (zone) lighting control, EMI suppression, fault protection and AEC-Q100 is common for either bus interface. For interior ambient lighting designs the 18 high voltage channels can be configured for 6 RGB zones or 18 high brightness lighting zones. For exterior applications the 18 individually controllable LED channels can be configured to create lighting effects for ‘welcome light’ or animated tail light applications.
“Our latest product release highlights Lumissil’s commitment to LED driver innovation that is second to none,” said Ven Shan, Vice President of Lumissil. “This newly introduced family of high voltage LED drivers enhances our portfolio of feature-rich offerings for a broad range of applications such as industrial signage, automotive interior and exterior lighting.”
Key features and benefits of the family of LED drivers:
40V high voltage outputs to enable stacking of multiple LEDs
60mA outputs for high brightness
