IR launches high-voltage LED driver
International Rectifier has launched a high-voltage buck regulator control IC for LEDs.
“In the rapidly growing solid state lighting sector, there is a need for low cost driver electronics to supply constant current output to high brightness, high power LEDs. The new IRS2980 offers improved performance at a lower system cost than alternative solutions for non-isolated LED driver applications,” says Peter Green, LED group Mmnager, IR’s energy saving products business unit.
