Electroluminescent (EL) backlight Products

EL drivers feature a boost converter to increase input to a high voltage needed to drive electroluminescence lamps (EL.) EL displays provide backlighting for a range of applications, including medical devices, mobile devices, wearables, electronic signage and gaming displays, and more. EL drivers can drive 1–3 channels over a wide range of input voltages (1.0–1.6V, 50–200V.)

Single Lamp Drivers

High voltage, low noise EL lamp drivers designed for driving a large output load of up to 150nF, or an area of approximately 42 square inches. The H-bridge is used to produce a differential output drive up to 360Vpp output voltage for high brightness.

Inductorless Lamp Drivers

High voltage, low noise EL lamp drivers which use a charge pump to boost the input voltage, eliminating the need for an external inductor and diodes common in conventional topologies.

Dual Lamp Drivers

Low noise, dimmable, high voltage, dual EL Lamp drivers designed for driving two electroluminescent (EL) Lamps with a combined area of 5.0 square inches. The architecture is capable of driving both outputs with a single inductor and requires a minimum number of passive components.

16-Segment Drivers

Up to 200V, 16-channel serial to parallel converter for multiple segment EL displays. The high voltage outputs and the backplane driver are designed to source and sink ±1.0mA.

Offline Driver

High voltage, off-line EL lamp driver integrated circuit designed for driving EL lamps of up to 350nF at 400Hz. The input supply voltage can be a rectified nominal 120V AC source or any other DC source up to 200V and supply the EL lamp with an AC square wave with a peak-to-peak voltage of two times the input DC voltage.

Automotive LED Drivers Products

The Automotive LED Driver products family consists of generally high brightness LED drivers with advanced PWM control capability such as fast transient response and very low susceptibility to noisy input transients. Microchip Technology aims to deliver lighting solutions to automotive customers globally for many years. These innovative products help the automotive OEM deliver vehicles that have reliable and competitive light system that is safer and more comfortable. The products and processes of Microchip Technology are designed to support the rigorous requirements of the automotive customers.

Backlight LED Drivers Products

From RGB backlight to Multiple string white LED driver applications, the Backlight LED Driver products family has various solutions to suite different customers’ needs; such as a high voltage closed-loop LED driver IC with PWM dimming capability for optimizing the LED performance & efficiency and extend LED life or a wide range or a battery-powered PWM DC/DC Boost solution in a 2mmx2mm DFN-8L package.

General Purpose LED Drivers Products

The General Purpose LED Driver products family offers board base product portfolio for targeting solid-state lighting and general illumination applications. The high voltage LED drivers featuring a wide operating input voltage range up to 450V at high accuracy of +/- 3% current regulation. The high brightness LED drivers can drive up to 10 LEDs in series with high-side current-sense programmability at 1A internal Power FET.

Linear Current LED Drivers Products

The Sequential Linear Driver products family is designed to drive long strings of low cost, low current LEDs in solid-state replacements for fluorescent tubes, incandescent bulbs and CFL bulbs. The solution minimizes driver circuit component counts, requiring just four or six resistors and a diode bridge in addition to the IC.

The Linear Current Driver products family offers the simple design solution in a single or multiple channels. The only external component required is a single ceramic bypass capacitor, making the PCB designs extremely simple, and the same capacitor may be shared with several drivers.

Camera Flash LED Drivers Products

Microchip’s Camera Flash Driver products family is capable of driving one or two camera flash LEDs up to 1.5A with best-in-class efficiency and enhanced current accuracy. These devices are ideal for portable battery operated applications including smartphones, camera-phones, tablets, notebooks, digital still and video cameras.
