STMicroelectronics Introduces 16 A Logic Level Triac for LED Light Dimmers


STMicroelectronics has introduced a new 16 A logic level Triac for LED light dimmers. The T1605G-6I Triac is TO-220AB insulated and can be used for the on/off or phase angle control function in general purpose AC switching where high commutation capability is required. Its super low holding current IH enables deep dimming for LED light dimmers without flickering or jittering.

The T1605G-6I Triac is available in an environmentally friendly ECOPACK2 package that is RoHS (2011/65/EU) and halogen free compliant. The TO-220AB insulated package also has UL-94, V0 flammability resin compliance.

The T1605G-6I Triac is recognized by UL. Representative samples of this component have been evaluated by UL and meet applicable UL requirements for UL 1557 standard.

Key features of T1605G-6I Triac

  • Three quadrants with logic level gate
  • Super low holding current IH = 5 mA
  • Optimized thermal performance with low power dissipation
  • Optimized turn-off commutation for lighting loads
