Reference Design RD007 is Released

Posted: 18 October, 2007

Converter Technology today released it’s latest reference design, RD007, targeted towards automotive LED lighting.

RD007 Automotive LED Ballast

This design uses a ‘Buck’ converter topology with a hysteretic control scheme to regulate the current in the LED, even under extreme variations in input voltage. This approach results in a design which can drive two series connected Luxeon K2 LEDs at 1A with an input voltage between 10Vdc and 60Vdc.

RD007 Maintains High Efficiency Over the Full Input Voltage Range
