Diodes Incorporated is a leading global manufacturer and supplier of high-quality, application-specific standard products within the broad discrete and analog semiconductor markets, serving the consumer electronics, computing, communications, industrial and automotive markets.

The AP8801 is a step-down DC/DC converter designed to drive LEDs with a constant current. The device can drive up to thirteen LEDs, depending on the forward voltage of the LEDs, in series from a voltage source of 8V to 48V. Series connection of the LEDs provides identical LED currents resulting in uniform brightness and eliminating the need for ballast resistors.


  • LED driving current up to 500mA
  • Operating input voltage up to 48V
  • High efficiency up to 92%
  • High switching frequency up to 500kHz
  • PWM/DC input for dimming control
  • Built-in output open-circuit protection
  • SOP-8L and MSOP-8L are available in “Green” Molding Compound (No Br, Sb)
  • Lead Free Finish/RoHS Compliant (Note 1, data sheet)


  • Commercial & industrial lighting
  • Small LCD panel backlight
  • Appliances interior lighting
  • Architecture Detail lighting

The AP8801SG-13 comes in a 13 inch tape and reel SOP-8L package and is available on a 2500 piece reel.
