PLANO, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Diodes Integrated (Nasdaq: DIOD) has expanded its portfolio of gadgets supporting automobile external illumination with the advent of the AL5873Q three-channel linear LED motive force centered at simplifying rear lamp cluster designs.
Rated for 125°C ambient temperature operation, this automotive-compliant, AEC-Q100 Grade 1 certified software meets the calls for of subsequent technology car design – whilst additionally offering power and area financial savings, therefore, low general gadget prices. Each and every of the AL5873Q’s channels can pressure as much as 250mA, and is ready by way of two reference resistors, which might be hooked up to the motive force IC’s REF1 and REF2 pins. Toughen for 2 other LED present ranges permits extra streamlined lighting fixtures methods – as the similar LEDs can be utilized in rear lamp clusters for tail and brake lamps. This lowers the invoice of fabrics (BOM) price considerably.
The AL5873Q has analog and grasp PWM dimming regulate capability, supporting a most PWM frequency of 1kHz. The PWM dimming serve as is pivotal in making improvements to present accuracy when LEDs are being pushed at low present ranges. The present on each and every channel is regulated to inside of a ±4% tolerance, which permits higher channel-channel matching within the rear mixture lamps. To preserve energy, the AL5873Q is going into standby mode if no PWM sign is detected.
The AL5873Q has integrated coverage options with a bidirectional (enter/output) fault pin which flags any faults and lets in as much as 4 gadgets to have their fault pins hooked up in combination, in order that any faults recognized are repeatedly reported. As a part of its coverage characteristic set, an interior junction temperature tracking circuit reduces the LED present if its outlined threshold temperature is exceeded. Along with this thermal foldback, thermal shutdown and LED string-open/-short coverage mechanisms also are incorporated, in addition to enter undervoltage lockout.
The AL5873Q is equipped in a compact 16-pin TSSOP package deal, helps PPAP documentation, and is manufactured in IATF 16949 qualified amenities. The unit value is $0.50 in 10,000 piece amounts.
