Benefits of integrated drivers for auto LEDs

Keywords:HB LEDs  vehicle  Integrated driver 

The global market for high brightness light emitting diodes (HB LEDs) is now worth of Rs.24,493.47 crore ($5 billion). These components are finding their way into an increasing number of system designs, providing illumination for TV backlights, digital signage, mobile phones and general lighting purposes.

However, there are constraints that could potentially hold up continued proliferation. Though they can bring clear advantages to modern vehicle designs, engineers serving the automotive sector need to be fully aware of what driving options are most suitable if the benefits of HB LEDs are to be fully realised.

Integrated driver devices could provide designers with a way of alleviating the problems they face, giving them a dedicated, yet cost-effective solution compared to generic semiconductor ICs that require large amounts of peripheral parts in order to get the job done.

Single-chip, application-specific solutions can also support large amounts of important functionality that is now being demanded by system designers. It is not surprising then that automotive engineers are starting to change their attitude towards these much-maligned devices, and beginning to take them more seriously.
