Precision Dimming Design Guide

Cree Application Note: CLD-AP268 REV 1 INTRODUCTION When operated in parallel strings, as is common in many linear LED designs, LEDs driven at relatively low currents (e.g., less than 20 mA for 3-V mid-power LEDs) will exhibit unacceptable light output and hue variations across the strings. These light output variations are caused by normal production [Read More]
