Automotive LED drivers

DC/DC, linear and backlighting LED drivers

Our automotive LED driver solutions help you build innovative, reliable, cost effective automotive lighting systems that exceed the auto industry's stringent requirements. Our broad portfolio of highly-efficient LED drivers extend the life of your lighting system designs, enable greater driver and pedestrian safety, and enhance the driver experience.

Product portfolio


From matrix managers to high power density switching LED drivers, we have highly flexible solutions to support your single feature or adaptive headlight needs, all while meeting EMI expectations.

Rearlight & interior lights

Our reliable linear LED drivers offer scalability across rear stop, turn and backup lighting functions. For small and interior lights, we have single-channel ICs with individual pixel control for personalized animated systems.

Infotainment & cluster

Our backlight and multi-channel linear options with comprehensive diagnostics enable you to drive dependable interactivity for display and tell-tale cluster applications.

Power trends

Power management is at the center of enabling the continued integration of electronics in our lives. For decades, TI has invested in innovative process, package and circuit-design technologies to deliver the best power products for your design. Check out our featured automotive LED drivers below, designed to help you address power density. 

Automotive LED drivers for power density

Enable the highest power density with our wide VIN Automotive LED drivers. We have a diverse portfolio of highly integrated devices for all types of automotive lighting applications – exterior front and rear, interior and display backlighting.

Our devices give you options to solve the tough challenges of balancing high system power output with small solution size. You can efficiently drive higher current output per channel, remove heat more effectively with our thermally enhanced packages, and shrink your system footprint with our monolithic linear and DC/DC LED drivers.
