Meet Strict EMI & Thermal Requirements in Automotive LED Lighting with LM53601-Q1
Historically, the primary challenge presented by using a DC/DC switching converter in automotive LED lighting applications was the potential for switching noise to negatively impact LED performance. It is for this reason that many engineers choose an LDO instead of a switcher, opting for much lower efficiency and complex thermal challenges in exchange for the guarantee of no EMI. But with intelligent pin-out and layout - along with features like spread spectrum - a switching regulator can provide superior thermal performance and smaller overall solution size while simultaneously muting the effects of EMI. Watch as Martin demonstrates how the LM53601-Q1 excels through a variety of system challenges to provide crisp and even LED lighting performance.
