Infineon's Digitally Configurable Controller Better Regulates LED Drivers

Every fifth kilowatt hour of electricity around the world is used for artificial light. LED technology, however, is making significant savings possible. About 13 million tons of CO 2 could be saved in Germany alone, equaling the emission of about seven million cars; in German office buildings, the electricity bill could be reduced by more than Euro 500 million. But how can we make introducing the technology easier for industry and end users? With  .dp digital power 2.0™ Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) has developed a digital platform for power supply with which the LED lighting systems can be controlled intelligently, thus making maximum energy savings possible.

Philips SimpleSet: Velocity Unplugged

Programming LED Drivers is nothing new. But it hasn’t been simple or fast. It requires expensive programmable drivers, and requires wiring and powering up each individual driver. Or it requires that cumbersome mechanical resistors be attached to the driver for just setting drive current. This just doesn’t work for high volume, reliable manufacturing in the lighting business.
