LED controllers drive lamps up to 150W with high PF

Operating at up to 150W and featuring multiple dimming options, Diodes Incorporated announce the AL1663 and AL1663R single-stage dimmable LED controllers. These devices support flyback and buck-boost topologies to provide primary-side regulation that achieves an accurate constant-current output without requiring opto-couplers and secondary control circuitry.

The controllers provide versatile and cost-effective drivers for LED backlighting, smart LED lighting and general-purpose dimmable LED lamps.

High efficiency and low EMI result from operation in Boundary-Conduction Mode (BCM) with valley-switching control, which further ensures the AL1663 and AL1663R maintain high power‑factors with low total harmonic distortion under universal input-voltage conditions. The use of primary-side regulation simplifies design and lowers total BOM component count and cost. The AL1663 and AL1663R are also characterised by low start-up current and low operating current, and integrate multiple protection features including over-voltage, short-circuit, over‑current and over-temperature.

Analogue and digital dimming modes are supported: the AL1663R has a single dimming pin that will accept either an analogue signal between 0.3 and 2.4VDC or a digital PWM input when connected with a suitable input capacitor of several hundred nF; and the AL1663 offers an additional digital dimming input pin that can accept a high-frequency PWM signal and provides built-in PWM-to-DC conversion.

The AL1663 and AL1663R are both offered in SO-8 packages. In quantities of 1,000 units, the AL1663S-13 is priced at $0.30 each and the AL1663RS-13 is priced at $0.25 each.
