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 […]

Infineon – BCR430U: Linear Low-Voltage Drop LED Driver IC


Long term reliability and longevity of LEDs are key. BCR430U is the best choice when you need to drive low power LED strings and strips supplied by a DC voltage source while still requiring more flexibility in voltage headroom. BCR430U is a linear LED controller IC in a small SOT23-6 package regulating the LED current […]

NICHIA — Launch of White LED That Offers Ultra-High CRI: Optisolis


     To improve the quality of light in a new generation of demanding lighting applications, NICHIA has developed a family of white LEDs named Optisolis™ which offers ultra-high Color Rendering Index (CRI) values. The light output from the Optisolis range of LEDs has the closest possible match to that of natural light. The Optisolis […]

NICHIA — New DMC Package Enables Tighter Spacing of LEDs in High-Flux Designs


     The NVSW(L)E21AT from NICHIA is a series of white LEDs which uses a new Direct Mountable Chip (DMC) package design to produce higher flux density than conventional chip-scale LEDs, particularly in board designs which are tightly populated with emitters. The higher flux density is the result of the lower optical losses sustained by […]

ON Semiconductor — Smart Lighting: Power Efficient Designs for IoT Lighting


Smart lighting is an emerging IoT technology that allows central and remote management of lighting systems across homes, buildings, and cities. The key advantage of this system is its ability to address individual or groups of light sources to adjust for mood, occupancy, and even energy conservation objectives. A smart lighting system requires that connectivity, […]
