Microchip LED drivers are a system-centric, mixed-signal LED driver technologies for backlighting and solid-state lighting applications. This broad-based and rapidly growing market includes LCD TVs, PC monitors, specialty panels (industrial, military, medical, avionics, etc.) and general illumination for commercial, residential, industrial and government. LED drivers utilize a proprietary and patented combination of analog and digital circuit techniques.
These products comprise a system-centric solution for local and global dimming, power management, signal conditioning, and smart interfacing. This approach allows electronic equipment manufacturers to significantly enhance product features, while improving power efficiency, reliability, and cost/performance.
Microchip offers compact, high-power LED drivers for multi-LED string applications such as direct backlight/edge-lit LCD panels and high-brightness, solid-state lighting applications.
