Diodes Inc.’s new multi-topology LED driver, the ZXLD1374, is designed to increase the performance of high brightness automotive, industrial and commercial lighting systems.
Operating in buck, boost and buck-boost modes, the ZXLD1374 LED driver with integrated 60V power MOSFET switch is capable of producing a maximum LED current of 1.5A.
The IC uses high-side current sensing and patent pending control loops to achieve high accuracy current control of LED strings.
