Diodes stabilize LED output
Author and Affiliation:
Deters, R. A.(Ball Bros. Res. Corp.)
Abstract: Small-signal diodes are placed in series with light-emitting diodes (LED's) to stabilize LED output against temperature fluctuations. Simple inexpensive method compensates for thermal fluctuations over a broad temperature range. Requiring few components, technique is particularly useful where circuit-board space is limited.
