Texas Instruments Inc. recently unveiled its AEC-Q100 qualified automotive LED drivers. TI's latest LED drivers feature thermal shutdown protection and optimised electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) performance.

The TLC6C598-Q1 and TLC6C5912-Q1 are monolithic, medium-voltage, low-current 8bit/12bit shift registers designed for use in systems that require relatively moderate load power, such as LEDs. Both devices have a rating of up to 40V on all outputs. This allows the TLC6C598-Q1 to power up to eight strings of LEDs and the TLC6C5912-Q1 to power up to twelve strings of LEDs directly connected to the automotive battery. The devices also offer self-protection against power dissipation, which results in better long-term reliability when low- and high-temperature demands are placed on the device. TI's latest offerings also have controlled and optimised rise and fall time for the outputs, reducing the electromagnetic emissions.

TI's latest LED drivers are designed for automotive dashboard applications, including tell-tale warning lamps, instrumentation cluster, and LED illumination and control.
