Maxim Integrated Products Inc., a well-known provider of innovative analog and mixed-signal products and technologies, has officially revealed a high-brightness LED controller labeled as MAX20078. It’s the only product available with a fast response time and low electromagnetic interference (EMI) for exterior LED lighting and improved safety applications.
This LED controller allows designers to achieve high performance, ease of design, and fast time-to-market. It can be used ideally for matrix lighting designs. In such applications, the LED drivers and controllers have to face certain challenges. For example, switching LEDs at high speeds can cause overshoots and undershoots in the current.
So, in order to achieve low EMI with different layouts and filtering methods, automakers have to invest a lot of time, money, as well as efforts.

The MAX20078 offers ultra-fast response times allowing smoother transient responses. It not only eliminates the need for external compensation components but also offers a wide dimming ratio alongside integrated fault protection and monitoring circuitry. All these advantages along with simplified design and flexible switching frequencies allow designers to achieve faster time-to-market.
• Ultra-fast response times enable advanced lighting designs
• Low EMI; no compensation components required; can be programmed using switching frequencies from 100 kHz up to 1MHz
• Integration of components and programmable switching frequency for a simple, flexible design
