Silicon Integrated Passive Device Technology for LED Applications
One general trend in electronics is the integration of components and functions in one single integrated circuit. Laurent Dubos, Market Segment Director for Lighting at IPDiA, shows that not only active components can be part of an IC, but also several passive components can be integrated. He demonstrates that besides space savings, quality issues are also a hot topic that need to be looked at and are a reason to use this technology.
An LED driver is a power supply that matches the voltage and the current output to the electrical characteristics of an LED or array of LEDs. From an environmental point of view, some of the applications of these HB-LED modules are very demanding, with some specific constraints about the space requirements in the bulb replacement market...
