A comprehensive set of configurable protection mechanisms (standard and sophisticated) ensure safe, reliable and robust LED driver for a large set of use cases. The XDPL8221 combines advanced functions, such as multi control featuring constant voltage, constant current and limited power as configurable operating parameters. The result is a versatile, high performance LED driver.
The performance of the XDPL8221 helps to design more efficient devices. This driver IC supports full functionality for both AC and DC input in the nominal input voltage range of 100 V AC to 277 V AC or 127 V DC to 430 V DC. Depending on the actual situation, the built-in digital control selects the best mode of operation. It can switch between quasi-resonant, discontinuous conduction or active burst modes.
The XDPL8221 UART interface with a command set enables control of the functions of the device and provides status information. This enables numerically exchanged real-time data. This data can be used for monitoring or additional local control functions.
This driver IC can be dimmed flicker free below one percent, while the current is still regulated with a high accuracy. The chip also offers a dim-to-off function to keep the device in a standby mode when the light is off with a low standby power (less than 100mW, depending on driver design).
