Digital Lighting Control and Drivers
Binning, temperature, component aging, dimming and constant current-drive needs influence light quality – affecting the customer experience. In addition to efficiency benefits or lifetime monetary savings, consumers are looking for better interior designs, brighter headlights, more beautiful colors and finer dimming control. To make better LED and traditional lighting circuits, for proper color, temperature and chromaticity, start with a Microchip evaluation board or reference design. These designs can be implemented as stand-alone systems using a traditional dimmer and AC input; or as connected systems supporting standard or custom communication protocols to open new control possibilities.
