ams — Tunable White Lighting…Simplified!

The AS7221 and AS7225 smart lighting manager and director, from optical sensing leader ams AG, bring luminaire manufacturers and integrators the world’s first chip-scale tunable-white integrated lighting “system-on-a-chip” solutions. The addition of closed loop optical sensing delivers the added benefit of optimizing overall system architecture by enabling tunable-white solutions from a single channel driver, while loosening LED binning requirements and eliminating light-by-light calibration.

The AS7221 Manager is a fully integrated luminaire control system, compatible with standard 0-10V inputs, 0-10V and PWM outputs, and enabled for IoT connectivity and network control through standard clients such as BLE, ZigBee or WiFi, through a complete Smart Lighting Command Set. The AS7225 Director is a host-based approach, designed to seamlessly deliver CCT tuning “directives” to any in-luminaire application processor to bring closed loop precision to an existing connected or smart light.

The industry agrees that tunable white will become a standard feature for most commercial luminaires, and many consumer lamps, in just a few short years. By combining a pre-calibrated closed loop sensing solution with tuning and management algorithms, lighting manufacturers designing with the AS722x family can now quickly integrate high-precision CCT/tunable-white capabilities into their standard product offerings.
