Integration's New LED Driver Enhances Flash Power in Camera Phones

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—October 24, 2006— Integration Associates, a high performance analog, mixed-signal semiconductor solutions provider for wireless, wireline, and power management applications, announced today the launch of the IA2521 Camera Flash LED Driver, an enhanced performance, low cost power conversion IC. Using only a 1.5 microhenry inductor, the IA2521 provides the highest efficiency of any device currently in the market, and is optimal for next generation Camera Phone, Digital Camera, and PDA applications worldwide. IA2521 will facilitate brighter flashes, enabling higher quality pictures.

The IA2521 Camera Flash LED Driver features a Buck-boost converter for LED camera flash, separate flash light and flash modes, and provides up to 4 watts of output power. Full flash brightness is reached as quickly as a xenon tube. The IA2521 incorporates spread-spectrum switching to minimize EMI, is self-protected against open-string conditions and thermal overloads, and is available in a 3x3 QFN or MSOP-8 package.

Commenting on the launch, Scott Parker, VP of Sales and Marketing said, "With the IA2521, Integration deploys a similar strategy in the DC/DC arena to that offered via the EZSwitcher(TM) family of AC/DC converters -- added benefit to the OEM through reduced BOM cost and increased functional integration."


The IA2521 IC is priced at $.90 each (USD) in quantities of 1,000 units.
