The FL77944 is a direct AC line LED driver with a minimal number of external RC passive components. In normal configuration, one resistor is to adjust LED power, and one capacitor is to provide a stable voltage to an internal biasing shunt regulator.
The FL77944 provides phase-cut dimming with wide dimming range, smooth dimming control and good dimmer compatibility. It achieves high efficiency with high PF and low THD, which makes the FL77944 suitable for high-efficiency LED lighting systems. The FL77944 has a dedicated DIM pin which can be used with analog or digital PWM dimming. The FL77944 can also be used with a rheostat dimmer switch which is suitable for desktop or indoor lamps.
Operation of FL77944 admits driving higher-wattage systems, such as street lights and down lights, by simply parallel connecting the driver ICs.
