LED Dimming Engine: An 8-bit MCU-based solution for a Switched-Mode Dimmable LED driver Mark Pallones, Microchip Technology
ZMD AG, a global supplier of energy-efficient analog and mixed-signal solutions for automotive, industrial, and medical applications, announced two high-performance devices to complement its family of LED driver integrated circuits. The ZLED7020 and the ZLED7030 LED driver ICs operate at up to 98% efficiency, thus helping to achieve the highest possible lumen-per-watt output in high brightness LED applications. ZMDI’s ZLED7020 and ZLED7030 feature dimming over a 1200:1 range and can drive LEDs with up to 1.2 amps of current from a power supply as high as 40 Volts. The ZLED7030, specifically, offers a 2/3-step dimming switch with three configurable options eliminating the need for an external dimmer control. "While LEDs are very efficient converters of electricity into light, they require highly efficient driver ICs to maximize this advantage," stated Dr. Hendrik Ahlendorf, Product Manager at ZMDI. "These two new devices, ZLED7020 and ZLED7030, do just that: They provide ideal solutions for many cost-sensitive applications, including signage, street and traffic lights, spotlights, appliance lighting and all types of general home and office illumination".
The ZLED7020 and the ZLED7030 LED driver include the 40-volt switching transistor on-chip and offer high-side current sensing. Requiring only a current-sense resistor, a diode, an inductor and a capacitor for a complete driver both devices help to minimize the Bill of Material (BOM). Built-in safeguards protect high-current and high-brightness LEDs with thermal shutdown, open-circuit and short-circuit protection.
