Automotive ambient lighting performance boosted and simplified

Automotive ambient lighting performance boosted and simplified
Melexis has extended its IC family with a new generation of its LIN RGB(W) LED controller. The new member – the MLX81113 – will support the further growth of RGB LED based automotive ambient lighting, also known as LIN RGB, which is already well established within nearly every OEM worldwide. The MLX81113 features more on-chip memory, higher output current and increased EMC robustness compared to the popular MLX81108. It also offers ISO 26262 functional-safety compliance to support its use in ASIL-A classified systems.
