Exhibiting current-mode buck/boost DC/DC control, ROHM Electronics’ BD8113EFV-E2 dual-channel white SSLD drives up to 150 mA of constant current per channel. The Pb-free HTSSOP-B24-packaged component offers a maximum input voltage of 36 V, a supply voltage range from 5 V to 30 V, and an operating temperature range from -40°C to 105°C. The driver presents undervoltage lockout, overvoltage protection, thermal shutdown, overcurrent protection, short-circuit protection, and inputs for brightness modulation via PWM or VDAC control. The unit suits medium- to large-sized automotive TFT LCD applications when combined with SMLK15W white LEDs. Pricing is $5.00 in sample quantities.
