60V, Synchronous Step-Down High Current LED Driver

Walker Bai - Applications Enginneer Nov 1st 2012
Introduction The meaning of the term “high power LED” is rapidly evolving. Although a 350mA LED could easily earn the stamp of “high power” a few years ago, it could not hold a candle to the 20A LED or the 40A laser diodes of today. High power LEDs are now used in DLP projectors, surgical equipment, ...
