SSL5261AT - Compact high power factor dimmable LED driver IC (v2)


This device is no longer available.  Please see the EOL notice.

  • Supports majority of available dimming solutions
  • Deep dimming level
  • Flicker-free dimming
  • Low electronic Bill Of Materials (BOM) ensuring a compact solution and small, single layer Printed-Circuit Board (PCB) footprint
  • Flexible buck or buck-boost applications using external power FET
  • Excellent line regulation and load regulation and good LED output current accuracy
  • Efficient BCM operation with:
    • No reverse recovery losses in freewheel diode
    • Zero Current Switching (ZCS) and Valley switching
    • Minimum inductance value and size required
    • High efficiency (up to 91 %)
    • Ultra low IC current during operation (< 190 μA)
  • Many auto-recovery protections:
    • UnderVoltage LockOut (UVLO)
    • Cycle-by-cycle OverCurrent Protection (OCP)
    • Internal OverTemperature Protection (OTP)
    • Output OverVoltage Protection (OVP)
  • Output Short Protection (OSP)

Typical Application


The SSL5261AT is part of a new range of LED driver ICs for non–isolated, dimmable (phase cut dimmable or with a control input signal) LED solutions. Complementing NXP’s broad GreenChip SSL family of products, the new IC supports LED lighting applications ranging from 5 W lamp power like Candela shape up to 25 W lamp power like integrated Fixtures/Luminaires, TLED and PAR lamp shapes.


  • Low cost mains dimmable, non-isolated retrofit LED lamps up to 25 W
  • Low cost mains dimmable, non-isolated driver modules for LED lighting up to 25 W
