Fonctionnalités et applications
Nexperia supplies various series of shift registers which enable designers of LED lighting systems to save space by using a compact, low-cost microcontroller to control the power supply to multiple LEDs. Suitable shift registers from Nexperia for this application include standard 8-bit devices such as the popular 74HC595, and also the newer NPIC6C series, which offers more advanced features.
NPIC6C is a series of simple, multiple-output power-converter devices, ‘shift registers’, which may be used to drivemultiple LEDs.
The NPIC6C devices are suitable for driving strings of low-power LEDs in applications such as signage and fault indicators. The NPIC6C is not suitable for the high-power LEDs used in general lighting.
- Graphical status panels
- Fault status indicators
- Automotive lighting
- Low on-resistance
- Simple control interface
- Supports I/O expansion
- Low power consumption
- Operating temperature range: -40°C to 125°C
Multiple NPIC6C units may be cascaded to drive large arrays of LEDs.
