Ballast Control ICs for Fluorescent Lamps

Half-bridge driver solutions cover a variety of topologies to effectively drive CFL and TL lamps.

The L6585DE one-chip solution integrates PFC and ballast controller, greatly reducing design time and complexity, lowering costs and providing a flexible solution for the most demanding applications.

The L6520/1 controllers drive MOSFETs but also less expensive bipolar power switches, thus enabling a low-cost solution without compromising on reliability. This solution embeds a digital control core that integrates all functions and protection features and offers accurate and programmable pre-heating to improve lamp life.
