The open LED protector provides a switching electronic shunt path when a single LED in an LED string fails as an open circuit. This ensures the entire LED string will continue to function even if a single LED in the string does not. This provides higher reliable lighting functions in applications such as headlights, aircraft lights, airport runway lighting, roadside warning lights, etc. This component is compatible with one watt rated LEDs with a nominal 350 mA current at 3V. The SOD-123FL package is one of the lowest height profiles (1.1 mm) packages offered in the industry.
