ON Semiconductor expands CCR offering
ON Semiconductor, one of the premier suppliers of high-performance silicon solutions for energy-efficient electronics, has introduced the new NSIC20XX series of linear constant current regulators (CCR) designed for use in solid-state lighting systems.
The new series of CCRs offers a maximum voltage rating of 120 V, 3 W and are capable of withstanding the high peak voltages of alternating current (AC) off-line HBLED lighting applications, including digital signage systems, lighting panels and decorative illumination. These new CCRs protect against the sudden surges that are commonplace in such lighting applications. Based on self-biased transistor (SBT) technology, the NSIC20XX series is capable of current regulation over a wide voltage range; while their negative temperature coefficient helps protect the LEDs from thermal runaway at extreme voltage and current levels.
“As the demand for solid-state lighting continues to grow, design engineers must be confident that the LEDs used are not in danger of being damaged by extreme temperatures or excessive current and that the long-term operation of the lighting system is assured,” said Dan Huettl, General Manager and Senior Director of ON Semiconductor’s small signal products.
The NSIC20XX series of CCRs provide a far simpler, more reliable and more cost-effective option of regulating the current of LEDs than conventional circuit design methodologies which rely on discrete, passive components. As these devices do not require the specification of any external components, they can serve as either high- or low-side regulators and offer a streamlined solution that maximises design flexibility.
