New automotive qualified constant current LED drivers from Nexperia deliver 250 mA output current

March 26, 2019

Nijmegen -- Easy-to-use, reliable and cost-efficient for the growing low- and medium-power LED lighting market

Nexperia, the global leader in discretes, logic and MOSFET devices, today extended its constant current LED driver family with eight new AEC-Q101 qualified devices to drive low- and medium-power LEDs up to 250mA. The 16 V NCR32xx and 40 V NCR42xx series are  available in two package styles, the space-saving SOT457 (SC-74) and the SOT223 (SC-73), a slightly-larger option which delivers a higher-power capability of up to 1250 mW.

The new LED drivers feature an accurate, stabilized output current of 10 mA without an external resistor; if an external resistor is used then the output current is adjustable up to 250 mA. Voltage overhead is low at 1.4 V. For extra ruggedness, the junction temperature of the drivers is 150 °C.

Joachim Stange, product manager bipolar transistors at Nexperia: “Our growing portfolio of LED drivers addresses the rapidly-expanding market for LEDs in automotive, white goods and consumer applications. Capable of being paralleled, the new NCR32x and NCR42x series are ideally suited to constant current source and automotive applications including interior and exterior lighting such as door handles, dashboards, number plates, indicators and rear lights.” 

These new LED drivers are serving Nexperia’s primary market Automotive and will increase its already extensive portfolio of AEC-Q101 qualified parts.
