Auto-Shutdown LED Driver
STMicroelectronics introduced its model STP16CPS05 LED driver that includes auto-power-saving features, allowing manufacturers to meet the requirements of industrial lighting, signage and transport applications. These constant-current LED drivers allow the individual ICs to go into a shutdown mode when no active inputs are detected. As a result, the driver can save power without external intervention, making it suitable for supporting all worldwide energy-saving programs that encourage power efficiency in lighting applications. The Power Logic series features a clock and data re-synchronization function which is useful when the devices are connected in cascade. The IC is available in four package types.
