Recom has added a 1.5A LED driver to its range of automotive-qualified parts. Meeting the requirements of AEC-Q100 with optional ‘wettable flanks’ for AOI, the RPY-1.5Q comes in a thermally-enhanced QFN package with integrated shielded inductor and measures 3 by 5 by 1.6mm.
Input range is four to 36VDC, covering nominal 5, 12 or 24V. The part can be adjusted for lower constant currents and PWM or analog zero to 100 per cent dimming is possible. Temperature rating is -40 to 125°C junction temperature, and the part features an enable input and fault flag indicator. Protection is included against input undervoltage, over-temperature, and output short circuit and over-current.
In addition to automotive applications, the device also suits general visible or IR lighting for buildings, drones, robotic camera systems or as a precision current source in test and measurement.
