DC/DC LED drivers are compact for longer LED strings

Compact DC/DC light emitting diode (LED) drivers in the LDB24 series from MicroPower Direct use a boost design. The use of a step-up circuit (rather than the more common step down) allows the LDB24 models to provide a higher DC output level than the input, which in turn allows them […]
