Sizing Up Circuit Protection for LED Strings

By Teddy To, Product Manager and Phillip Havens, Segment Manager • Littelfuse, Inc. As LEDs find their way into more outdoor applications they are at higher risk for ESD and other electrical transients. HB LEDs (those with sapphire or SiC substrates and in the future AlN and GaN substrates) are especially susceptible, and when the first LED in a string fails, the whole string goes dark. Few engineers know all the considerations of specifying circuit protection for LED strings. For example, a recent category of devices, called open LED protecto...
