Digital LED driver ICs from Infineon offer flicker-free control and low stand-by power



XDPL8220 LED driver

The XDPL8220 from Infineon Technologies extends their product portfolio of digital and configurable LED driver ICs. The IC enables the lighting industry to realize essential features for smart lighting and increases the benefits for both, end user and manufacturers. The primary side control of this device saves extra components, reducing cost on the one hand and increasing reliability on the other.

The XDPL8220 offers a modern two stage architecture, significantly easing the implementation of up and coming flicker standards. This was made possible by eliminating the low frequency variation from the mains supply and guaranteeing a stable output. Aiming at high energy efficiency, the low stand-by power facilitates permanent operation of the Electronic Control Gear (ECG). With a stand-by power of less than 70 mW, the XDPL8220 reduces power consumption in the non-active mode while still reacting to external events or user requests.

Flexibility saves efforts and cost

The digital core of the XDPL8220 enables a variety of systems based on the same device. Its advanced control algorithms provide the possibility to realize lighting for constant current or constant voltage mode in the same circuit. The power limitation mode keeps the light on while it optimally utilizes the capabilities of the components. Infineon’s LED driver provides a comprehensive set of parameters for adjusting the operating constraints. Thus, it can easily be adapted to the target application. With its integrated functionality the XDPL8220 enables an increase of the feature set without external parts.


Samples of the XDPL8220 can be ordered now; it will be available in January 2017. The new LED driver IC is showcased for the first time at LpS 2016 in Bregenz from September 20 to 22, 2016 at booth B9. Further information is available at.
