Providing designers greater flexibility for their lighting designs, Texas Instruments (TI) has introduced the first 3-channel high-side linear automotive LED controller without internal MOSFETs. The TPS92830-Q1’s architecture enables higher power and better thermal dissipation than conventional LED controllers, and are particularly beneficial for automotive LED lighting applications that require high performance and reliability.
Conventional LED drivers integrate the MOSFET, which limits designers’ ability to customise features. With that type of driver, designers often must make significant design modifications to achieve the desired system performance. The TPS92830-Q1 LED controller’s flexible on-board features give designers the freedom to select the best MOSFET for their system requirements. With this new approach, designers can more quickly and efficiently optimise their lighting power designs for automotive system requirements and desired dimming features.
The TPS92830-Q1 expands TI’s extensive portfolio of LED drivers, design tools and technical resources that help designers implement innovative automotive lighting features.
