"Fairchild's FAN7316 and FAN7317 offer the industry's most comprehensive protection functions resulting in superior system reliability. By reducing the number of components, these devices specifically address the ever-growing need to reduce overall system cost in LCD designs," said Jay Lee, director of Fairchild's Lighting product line.
Industry-leading benefits of the FAN7316 and FAN7317 include:
-- Space and cost savings - eliminating the need for external I(C)_V(CC) regulation circuitry and OLP and OLR(a) detection circuitry and P-MOSFET driving circuitry(a) with its wide input voltage range (FAN7316: 4.5V to 24V, FAN7317: 6V to 25.5V) and built-in OLP and OLR(a) detection circuitry. This eliminates up to 30 external components.
-- System reliability - offering the industry's most comprehensive protection functions including built-in OLP circuit, open lamp regulation (OLR), short circuit protection (SCP), thermal shutdown (TSD), soft-start and arc protection.
-- Design flexibility - featuring a wide input voltage range, selectable dimming polarity, analog and burst dimming mode and PWM dimming by an external pulse signal, the FAN7316 and FAN7317 offer flexibility in designing N-N half-bridge, push-pull and P-N full-bridge LCD backlight inverters.
Fairchild offers a comprehensive CCFL backlight inverter portfolio including Buck-Royer, push-pull, half and full-bridge topologies complemented by Fairchild's single and dual MOSFETs.
The FAN7316 and FAN7317 are available in a 20 pin SOIC lead (Pb)-free package that meets or exceeds the requirements of the joint IPC/JEDEC standard J-STD-020C. Both utilize lead-free (Pb-free) terminals and have been characterized for moisture sensitivity in accordance with the Pb-free reflow requirements of the joint IPC/JEDEC standard J-STD-020. All of Fairchild's products are designed to meet the requirements of the European Union's Directive on the restriction of the use of certain substances (RoHS).
Price (each, 1000 pcs.): US$ 1.48 for the FAN7316 US $1.55 for the FAN7317 Availability: Now Delivery: 12 weeks ARO
