NXP Sets New Benchmarks for LED Drivers

NXP Semiconductors today announced three major developments in its portfolio of mains connected LED driver solutions: the success of its SSL2101 LED driver IC in matching LED lifetimes in an accelerated lifetime test; the introduction of the SSL 2102 integrated dimmable mains LED driver IC for SSL retrofit lamps and modules; and the launch of its online design tool for SSL applications. 

"LED lighting has the potential to be ten times more efficient than incandescents, with manufacturers reporting lifetime figures exceeding 50,000 hours." said Jacques le Berre, director of marketing and business development for lighting solutions, NXP Semiconductors. "Through our ongoing lifetime test, which has now surpassed 7,000 hours, we’ve set a new benchmark and proven that NXP’s mains LED controller and driver ICs are up to the challenge of supporting extreme long-life lamps." 

NXP has been conducting the industry’s longest-running test of LED driver ICs, running continuously since December 2008, with zero failures. As of today, the test has reached 7,000 hours and continues to run, demonstrating that NXP mains LED controller and driver ICs are capable of matching LED lifetimes. 

The SSL2102 is the latest addition to NXP’s lighting portfolio, offering deep dimming down to one percent of full light intensity, as well as compatibility with a wide range of dimmers. The small, highly integrated and highly efficient driver is the next step in SSL retrofit LED lighting, and is ideal for small form-factor applications with closed casings. 

NXP’s new online design tool for SSL applications makes it easy for engineers to evaluate and test the behavior of LED lighting applications based on four NXP products, including the new SSL2102 and SSL2101 for dimmable applications, as well as the SSL1522 and SSL1523 for non-dimmable applications. The tool enables engineers to quickly select the IC they need and test designs for LED drivers from 2W up to 25W. The tool generates schematic, component and transformer parameters, calculates the design’s efficiency, and presents an overview of efficiency losses.
