Inverters and drives
Drive circuits are comprised of several common stages, each of which requires careful design to meet safety and efficiency goals. At each stage of a drive circuit, passive components perform a crucial role in filtering, protection and conversion.
Our interactive tool will help you navigate our comprehensive portfolio of TDK and EPCOS components for inverters and drives. Use the tool to explore the individual stages of a drive circuit and identify the most suitable products for your design, with easy access to datasheets and technical information.GET STARTED
Similar to drives for industrial motors, LED driver circuits comprise common stages which require passive components to carry out filtering, protection, and conversion functions in order to meet safety and efficiency requirements.
Avnet Abacus stocks a wide range of TDK and EPCOS products suited to LED driver applications. Using a basic reference design, this tool breaks down the individual stages of an LED driver circuit to help you identify the most suitable products for your design, with easy access to datasheets and technical information.GET STARTED
