Enables smoother and more natural interactions with smart-home devices, wearable electronics, and small appliances

STMicroelectronics’ LED1202 can operate independently of the main controller, enabling the host system to save power while sophisticated lighting effects run continuously. 12-bit internal PWM dimming enables precision control of programmed sequences and the main controller can set 8-bit values for analog dimming via the driver’s I2C interface. Minimal external components are required to complete the driver circuit.

With 12 output channels, a single LED1202 can drive four RGB LEDs. An innovative synchronization feature allows connecting up to eight LED1202 drivers to control larger LED arrays. In addition, superior low-current channel matching, within 2% (typical) at 2.5mA, enhances color consistency.

Phase shifting between channels minimizes current ripple and prevents excessive peak demand. Built-in safety features include open-LED detection, over-temperature protection, and a fault-flag pin.

Key Features

  • Supply range from 2.6 V to 5 V
  • 8 programmable patterns and sequences
  • 20 mA current capability per channel
