Sunnyvale, Calif.Maxim Integrated Products has introduced the MAX16834, a current-mode, high-brightness LED (HB LED) driver for boost, buck-boost, SEPIC, and high-side buck topologies.
This device is designed to reduce the size, complexity, and cost of solid-state lighting (SSL) designs such as MR16 spotlights, simplifying the implementation of green lighting technology. Towards this end, it integrates a high-side, current-sense amplifier; a PWM-dimming MOSFET driver; and protection circuitry. Providing the efficiency and thermal-management capabilities critical to LED system designs, the MAX16834 is well-suited for applications such as LED automotive exterior lighting, LCD backlighting, and architectural lighting.
Pricing: Starts at $1.24 (1000-up, FOB USA).
