Silicon Integrated Passive Device Technology for LED Applications

Silicon Integrated Passive Device Technology for LED Applications

One general trend in electronics is the integration of components and functions in one single integrated circuit. IPDiA, shows that not only active components can be part of an IC, but also several passive components can be integrated.

It demonstrates that besides space savings, quality issues are also a hot topic that need to be looked at and are a reason to use this technology. A LED driver is a power supply that matches the voltage and the current output to the electrical characteristics of an LED or array of LEDs. From an environmental point of view, some of the applications of these HB-LED modules are very demanding, with some specific constraints about the space requirements in the bulb replacement market.

  • IPDiA passive integration

    The electronic designs you are creating getting more and more complex. And at the same time footprints needs to be reduced and there are demands on stability that cannot be reached by using traditional passive components.


  • IPDiA

    The creation of IPDiA is the result of more than 10 years of Research and Development carried out in large international groups - Philips & NXP - which led to the invention of innovative 3D technologies to integrate Passive Devices. IPDiA's primary objective is to focus on two main axes : Integrated Devices for high brightness LEDs and Integrated Passive Devices for new markets such as medical, industrial, aerospace and defense.
