Integrated LED controller yields increased lamp power

May 30, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
NXP’s SSL5015/18 combines LED controller and MOSFET for up to 18W lamp power

SSL5015/18 is a compact, high-efficient driver IC for LED lighting. With an integrated MOSFET, it supports lighting applications up to 18W lamp power, for exampole TLED and PAR lamp shapes. The controller is available across multiple markets; SSL5015 is optimised for US and Japan, while SSL5018 is designed for Europe and Asia. NXP also has four related reference boards to add to the NXP LED Driver Solutions Selection Guide.

The SSL5015/18 offers a cost-effective, non-isolated solution with a high lamp power factor (PF) of up to 0.9. Engineers can also tailor the demo board quickly and easily to suit their individual needs using NXP’s online design tool. This tool decreases time to market and reduces margin for error with simulation capabilities.
