Microchip`s HV96001 LED driver for flicker free dimming applications down to 0,1% level and lower

The HV96001 LED driver targets offline lighting applications requiring wide dimming capability. The device is capable of linear dimming and PWM dimming, with the PWM dimming capable of flicker-free dimming down to 0.1% level and lower. The device adjusts the output voltage of the AC to DC conversion stage for maintaining a high conversion efficiency over a wide range of the LED load voltage. It also maintains a precise control over the LED current amplitude, thereby maintaining the consistent color temperature. The device is best suited for connected/smart lighting applications and supports a broad range of wired and wireless protocols.

HV96001 Evaluation Board

The HV96001 Off-Line LED Driver Evaluation Board is fully assembled and tested to evaluate and demonstrate the HV96001 LED driver. In the primary side, the Flyback converter has implemented an active Power Factor Correction (PFC) control algorithm by a PIC® MCU that commands the switching sequence in such a manner that the input current follows the input voltage envelope.
