The new A8518 and A8519 from Allegro MicroSystems Europe – the latest additions to the company’s portfolio of LED driver ICs for LCD backlighting applications – are multi-output boost converter devices with built-in fault-tolerant protection.
Each device integrates a current-mode boost converter with an internal power switch with either two current sinks (dual string) in the A8518 or four current sinks (quad string) in the A8519. Both devices are targeted at the automotive and industrial markets.
In the automotive sector, end applications include high-efficiency, high-dimming-ratio, low EMI automotive infotainment and instrument cluster LCD backlighting, head-up displays, interior lighting and accent lighting. The devices are also suited to robust commercial and industrial backlighting and lighting applications.
