BUCK DIMMABLE LED DRIVER
The AL16937 is a high performance, high power factor, high
efficiency, and high current precision buck dimmable LED driver for
triac dimmable LED lamp applications. The AL16937 topology
provides an accurate output current over wide line and load
regulation. The wide switching frequency operates at boundary
conduction mode (BCM) to ease EMI/EMC design and testing, to
meet the latest regulatory standards.
The AL16937 LED driver integrates 400V/3A MOSFET, which is
suitable for 120VAC applications. The AL16937 has the built-in
thermal fold-back protection trigger point to automatically reduce
output current. Other protection features enhance LED lighting
system's safety and reliability.
The AL16937 dimming curve is compliant with the NEMA SSL6
standard. The AL16937 applies to a wide range of dimmers, including
leading edge and trailing edge dimmer, to achieve deep dimming
down to 1%.
The AL16937 is available in SO-7 package.
