In automotive cluster and other safety-critical LED driver applications, the performance
demand for multi-channel LED is increasing to achieve consistency of LED brightness and color
temperature. System-level safety considerations require detection capability for various fault
scenarios and thus increase system complexity.
The TLC6C5712-Q1 device is a 12-channel constant-current-sink LED driver. The precision
output current with 8-bit dot correction makes the TLC6C5712-Q1 device a perfect solution to
correct LED brightness and color temperature variation. Advanced protection and diagnostics for
each component improve system-level robustness and ease safety-oriented design. Six PWM inputs with
programmable mapping support different LED color-dimming configurations and provide a high dimming
ratio. A 16-bit serial-peripheral interface (SPI with diagnostics supports multiple devices in a
daisy chain and eases the system-level design.
