Hi guys,
I am building some LED turn signals and DRLs for my car. My plan was to build a flasher using 555 IC, but I think it's better and faster to buy a LED Electronic flasher. The thing is that my car's flasher has 6 prongs (12v in, ground, L and R in, L and R out), and most of the common LED flashers have only 3 prongs. Then I found this flasher. Do you guys think it would work? I think the Ignition and Hazard pins on the flasher will be left unconnected, and I'm not sure if that would cause any problem. Also another question, I'm gonna use some Cree XP-E on heatsinks, and I was wondering what would be a good operating temperature for these? During my test (not done in a housing), the temperature rises to 45 degree C and stays there for more than 5 hours. One last question, are low drop out v-regs necessary over non low drop out, and if I need to use them, where should I put them in that diagram?
Thank you.
