RECOM has added further automotive-qualified parts to its product range with theRPY-1.5Q: a high-efficiency, cost-effective, 1.5A-rated LED driver. Meeting the requirements of AEC-Q100 with optional ‘wettable flanks’ for Automated Optical Inspection, the product comes in a thermally-enhanced QFN package with integrated shielded inductor and is just 3 x 5 x 1.6mm. The RPY-1.5Q operates over an input range of 4 to 36VDC, covering nominal 5, 12, or 24V. The part can be adjusted for lower constant currents, and PWM or analog 0-100% dimming is possible. Temperature rating is -40°C to +125°C junction temperature, and the part features an enable input and fault flag indicator. Full protection is included against input undervoltage, over-temperature, and output short circuit and over-current.
While the RPY-1.5Q will find applications in the automotive market, it is also ideal for general visible or IR lighting for buildings, drones, robotic camera systems, or as a precision current source in test and measurement.
“The addition of ‘wettable flanks’ is an option that automotive customers are now asking for” says Matthew Dauterive of RECOM, “the feature means that joints can be inspected optically without the need for expensive and slow X-ray techniques”.
Samples and OEM pricing are available from all authorized distributors or directly from RECOM.
