Keeping the Lights On: ESD and Heat Protection for LED Lighting Systems
There are several factors that can affect solid state lighting in electronic design from stress issues, to packaging-related issues to component-related issues. Design engineers must take these factors into account. There are five key threats that affect the reliability of LED lighting systems in electronic designs:
- Electrostatic discharge (ESD) events, including lightning
- Transient overcurrent events and surges
- Current and voltage spikes during hot swapping
- Reverse voltage effects
- Over-temperature protection
