Multiple Dimming Isolated PWM Controller for high-performance LED lighting

Diodes AL8116

Diodes Incorporated announced the availability of the versatile dimming input controller for offline LED lamps. AL8116 works with three types of dimmer signal formats:

  1. 0 to 10 V dimming voltage
  2. PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) signal
  3. Simple potentiometer

 Diodes - AL8116

It converts these to a PWM output signal which can easily be used to provide an isolated dimming control via an opto-coupler to the primary side LED driver.

AL8116 Typical Application Circuit
AL8116 Typical Application Circuit.

The AL8116 has a wide supply voltage range from 10 V to 56 V. The AL8116 Output Duty Cycle accuracy is typically ±2.5% and its minimum Output Duty cycle can be set through a CLAMP pin resistor.

The AL8116 has an internal overtemperature protection (OTP) and it is available in the SOT26 package.
