LDHM Series MagI³C Power Modules

Würth Elektronik introduces its LDHM series, of the MagI³C power modules family, in a TO-263 package

Image of Wurth Electronics' LDHM Modules TO-263 PackageWürth Elektronik LDHM series, of the MagI³C power modules family, are constant, buck, LED driver modules. The module drives a maximum load of 450 mA LED current and comprises a fully integrated current driver with passives, all in one package. The MagI³C LED driver module provides a ready-made solution that is both highly efficient and can be used for a variety of single-string LED lighting applications. It requires an input voltage from 4.5 V to 60 V and provides a preset LED current of 350 mA. The LED current is adjustable from 300 mA to 450 mA by loading a single external resistor. The energy efficiency is up to 95%.

The MagI³C LED driver module operates at a constant switching frequency of 800 kHz for low electromagnetic interference (EMI), and it is designed according to the standard EN55015. The module has a fast control loop to fine LED current, which is dissolved by 256 PWM steps at 240 Hz to implement for general lighting. Protection features include thermal shutdown, input under-voltage lockout, and LED open-circuit and short-circuit protection. The MagI³C LED driver module is designed as an industrial high power density package with a low profile and a small outline.
