As a solid state light emitting diode (LED) emerge in a large amount, make incandescent lamp increasingly lonely. In the past few years, LED technology has had great progress, in the heat dissipation, packaging and technology progress make LED a higher brightness, higher efficiency and longer life and lower cost.
However, in the energy conversion efficiency, heat management and production costs, LED still have further promotion space. For example, LED efficiency already has obtained great improve. LED many to improve from now on a chip can better play in real estate, and there is a better way from the chips encapsulation for light source. Likewise, and the price of white LED ma has been greatly reduced, the LED's just come out, batch purchase price for $1. And there are possible to less than 30 cents around the group to buy twenty ma white light LED.
200W led Flood light applications demand analysis
Of course, all these advances will not only promote LED in different application as the use of lighting source, but also stimulate the 200W led Flood light IC needs. To understand the design and manufacture of 200W led Flood light IC face what obstacles, we must understand the white light LED to luminous need what conditions. The white light LED must use a constant current source drive, so that white spot won't change (i.e. brightness must agree). In addition, since the white LED is a diode, then must overcome it internal positive pressure drop (Vf). Vf with white light LED current value different and different, also with the temperature changes. Usually, in the whole working temperature range, and white LED ma the Vf in 2.5 V to 3.9 V range change. Most applications are using multiple white light LED, but also could these LED configured to parallel, serial or parallel hybrid form. This means that the white light 200W led Flood light IC must be able to for a particular configuration of multiple LED provide enough electric current and voltage, and the IC the voltage switching topology must at the same time satisfy the input voltage range and output voltage and current requirements.
LED the common applications include automobile and aircraft panel display and instructions, traffic light, mobile phones, flat panel display QiBei light source, miner's lamp, building and outdoor stadium lighting, etc., and the current and future within a few years, LED the market the biggest driving force growth from the flat panel display backlighting demand. The display USES a LCD screen, used for television, navigation system, portable media players, digital billboard and computer monitor. However, using LED heat management facing technical challenges. Although LED is not like other light source that radiation so much heat, but according to the output power is different, some LED may need appropriate radiator, so that light output won't reduce, life will not shorten. For example, light output is 25 lm high brightness LED by general consumption of power more than 1 w. This means that the white light 200W led Flood light IC must be in the conversion of high efficiency, so that it can not be ReWenTi main causes. In addition, in many cases there is the problem of limited space, LED drive solutions must be accounted for plate area is small, small in size and shape.
Use of mobile phones as an example, today most mobile phones have built-in digital camera, to take high resolution photos and video. The camera also lead to the improvement of the performance of the high power white light source demand, camera indoors or in dark environment need to use this source, the white light LED has become a mobile phone camera the main light source. For white LED has a variety of modern mobile phone designers want features: small size, specular output, to provide "flash" and "video" object continuous lighting. Has been designed for integrated type camera lighting developed high output power LED.

Obviously, and, compared with incandescent lamp lighting LED has a lot of advantages, such as LED is expected to reduce the long-term costs and has a long life.
However, with the current drive LED for DC/DC converter accurate control current, to ensure that the same intensity of light and color consistency and the protection of LED. In addition, there is a big challenge, which may be less than, equal to or higher than the load voltage of the battery voltage for one or several LED string of power supply. Another concern is the major problem than efficient light of these LED dimming, and at the same time also in low light and high brightness while maintaining these LED color characteristics unchanged. Finally, one of the most important requirement is that the DC/DC drive to work efficiency, especially in the drive HB LED is such, because all not into light power is converted into heat consumed.
Use the car battery drive LED for DC/DC converter accurate control LED current, to ensure that the same intensity of light and color consistency, and the protection of LED. In addition, depending on the use of LED is different, DC/DC voltage regulator should also be for a specific power requirement and optimization. The major challenge is to use may be less than, equal to or higher than the load voltage of the battery voltage for one or several LED string of power supply. Need to concern is with major efficient than light to LED dimming, and at the same time in low light and high brightness while maintaining these LED color characteristics unchanged.
