Application specific ignitors

ST offers a wide range of application-specific ignitors designed to ensure high reliability and an extended lifetime for appliances and lighting systems.

Fire lighter circuits (FLCs) are a central building block for igniting gas-powered appliances including furnaces and stoves.

Using very few passive components, ST's light ignition circuits (LICs) and (TN22) fluorescent tube lamp starters are specifically designed as a spike generator built from a capacitive discharge of the 120/240 VAC mains supply through a high-voltage transformer to ensure that the integrated trigger only fires when required.
