Tenrod Australia , official distributors for Macroblock, manufacturers of LED Driver ICs, have released their LED Driver with silent error detection and other features to enable smart driving of LEDs particularly when used outdoors in large arrays.
The LED Driver IC MBI5027 is designed for LED displays with Open/Short circuit detection extension. Macroblock’s PrecisionDrive of precise constant current control for this 16-bit shift register IC (with data latches) has an output of 16 regulated current ports providing uniform and constant current sinks over a wide variation of VF. The PrecisionDrive provides constant current control with minimal variations in current from channel to channel and from IC to IC.
Macroblock’s Share-I-O technology enables detection and identification of any failed LED and brightness equalisation.
