LP8860-Q1 Electrical Overstress Analysis and Recommendation
The LP8860-Q1 is an automotive high-efficiency LED driver that has boost controller and four highprecision
current sinks. Clean silicon is expected to perform as specified by the LP8860-Q1 data sheet
when operated under normal operation. There are several root causes that could potentially be associated
to electrical overstress (EOS) damage inherent to integrated circuits. This application report discusses
some details about models, examples, solutions, and best practices associated to EOS damage induced
by external applications and procedures using LP8860-Q1.
