12V Automotive LED Driver IC LITIX™ Basic TLD1314EL
Short Circuit fault management - transient
LITIX™ Basic TLD1314EL is a three channel high side driver IC with
integrated output stages. It is designed to control LEDs with a current
up to 120 mA. In typical automotive applications the device is capable
to drive i.e. 3 red LEDs per chain (total 9 LEDs) with a current up to 60mA,
which is limited by thermal cooling aspects. The output current is controlled
practically independent of load and supply voltage changes.
This setup is showing the Short Circuit to GND detection with ST pin
connected sequentially to an external resistor and shorted to GND
during the fault.
