Semtech SC442

10-Channel, Integrated, High Efficiency 120 White LED Driver

Add to Watch List

The SC442 is a 10-channel, high efficiency integrated step-up (boost) driver IC capable of powering up to 120 WLEDs. The device has a wide input voltage of 4.5V to 21V with no internal regulator or bypass capacitor required. The wide input range, up to 42V output voltage and flexible implementation make it the ideal LED backlight driver solution for medium to large LCD displays.
