온세미컨덕터, 업계 최초로 10 A 초용량 LED 플래시 드라이버 출시  Chinese Japanese

NCP5680, 새로운 LED 플래시 겸 파워 관리 솔루션 집적 소자 - 0.55mm 초소형 패키지로 제공돼 배터리 수명을 연장하고 디지털 포토 품질을 대폭 향상 - 10A급 대용량 커패시터 기반의 소자로 초슬림 카메라폰 및 디지털 카메라에 적합

2009년 6월 25일, 서울 – 고성능, 고효율의 실리콘 솔루션을 제공하는 온세미컨덕터(지사장: 이종덕)가 대용량 커패시터 기반의 LED 플래시 드라이버 NCP5680을 출시했다. NCP5680은 초슬림 카메라폰 및 소형 디지털 카메라의 포토 플래시 및 비디오 라이트에 최대 10A를 제공할 수 있다.

온세미컨덕터의 저전압 파워 관리 제품 담당 이사 마리-테레즈 카프론(Marie-Therese Capron)은 “초박막의 분광 대용량 커패시터가 집적된 NCP5680은 슬림 카메라폰 및 디지털 카메라용 LED 플래시 및 파워 관리 솔루션으로 이상적이다”라며, “이 LED 플래시 솔루션은 제논(Xenon, 원소기호 Xe) 플래시에 필적하는 광 에너지를 공급하면서도 높이가 타 제품의 절반에 불과하며 추가적인 비디오 캡쳐용 LED도 필요하지 않다. NCP5680은 리튬-이온 배터리의 사용시간을 위해 저전력 설계를 지원함으로써 파워 관리 솔루션(power management solution) 기반의 이 새로운 대용량 커패시터가 스마트폰(Smart Phone) 등의 다양한 기능 지원을 할 수 있을 것으로 보인다”고 말했다.

온세미컨덕터의 NCP5680은 CAP-XX사가 제공하고 무라타(Murata)사가 라이선스 권한을 가지고 있는 대용량 커패시터(최대0.9pF at 5.5V)와 오스람사의 고전력 LED OSLUX 를 함께 사용할 경우 CAP-XX사가 개발한 BriteFlash™ 파워 아키텍처 기반 사용에 최적화된 플래시 조명에 최대 10 A까지 높은 피크대의 전류를 공급하므로 리튬-이온 배터리를 보완한다.

완벽하게 프로그래밍할 수 있는 대용량 커패시터의 충/방전 제어 및 고유의 과부하 보호 기능은 고품질 사진을 위해 적절한 양의 광원을 제공한다. 통합 드라이버는 또한 오디오 앰프와 같은 휴대용 시스템에서 다른 높은 피크대의 전류 회로에 동력을 제공하므로 배터리 작동 시간을 연장시킨다.

저조도 환경에서 고화질 사진을 출력하기 위해서는 5백만 화소 이상의 카메라에 고휘도 플래시가 필수적이다. 최근의 백색 LED는 이러한 레벨의 광원 에너지를 공급할 수 있으나 카메라 배터리 용량 보다 400% 이상 많은 전력을 필요로 한다. 배터리의 효율을 위해 온세미컨덕터의 NCP5680은 LED 플래시를 최고의 휘도로 구동하는 대용량 커패시터를 관리하므로 10A에 이르는 높은 피크 전류를 공급한다.

NCP5680내의 드라이버는 또한 피크 파워를 필요로 하는 다른 여러 기능들 – 줌, 자동 초점, 오디오, 비디오, 무선 송신, GPS 및 RF 증폭 – 을 조절하기 위해 대용량 커패시터를 관리하며, 이 경우에도 슬림한 디자인을 손상시키지 않으면서 배터리 수명을 연장시키는 기능을 발휘한다.

NCP5680은 대용량 커패시터의 충전, 최대 전류 및 LED 전류 관리를 위해 필요한 모든 회로를 집적하므로 설계자들은 개발 시간, 보드 공간, 부품 비용 등을 절약할 수 있다. 완벽하게 프로그래밍 할 수 있는 대용량 커패시터 충/방전 제어 기능은 고품질 사진에 필요한 적절한 빛의 양을 보장해준다.

I2C 인터페이스를 통한 유연한 제어 성능
사용자들은 NCP5680의 I2C 레지스터를 이용해 2개 LED 각각의 출력 전류와 플래시 지속 시간을 실시간으로 조정할 수 있다. 따라서 이 솔루션은 사진 촬영을 위한 초점용 플래시, 예비발광, 파워 플래시 광원과 비디오 녹화를 위한 지속광 같은 각각의 다른 광원 효과를 발휘할 수 있다.

NCP5680이 주변의 광원 센서에 연결되면 자동으로 플래시 지속 시간을 제한해 사진의 과다 노출을 예방함으로써 사진의 품질이 유지된다. 또한 대용량 커패시터 충전 전류는 I2C 레지스터를 통해 조정될 수 있다. NCP5680은 배터리의 누설전류를 막기 위해 GSM 시스템 작동 시에 충전 기능을 일시적으로 제한한다.

안전 보호 성능
NCP5680에 내장된 다중 보호 메커니즘은 플래시 타임 아웃, 온도 감지 기능, 과부하 보호, 누전 보호 기능 등을 포함한다. 이 소자는 회로 작동 중 발생할 수 있는 어떤 불안전한 상황에서도 플래시 회로를 보호한다.

패키징 및 가격 정보
3.5 mm x 3.5 mm x 0.55 mm µQFN-24 (micro-QFN-24) 패키지로 제공되는 NCP5680의 가격은 3,000개 구매 기준으로 개당 미화1.10 달러이다.
