Texas Instruments (TI) has introduced a complete LED lighting driver reference board in collaboration with Lemnis Lighting. The TPS92010 LED-lamp reference board applies TI's semiconductor technology for general LED lighting and Lemnis' expertise in dimmable lighting applications.
The reference board is based on TI's new TPS92010 LED lighting controller. The TPS92010 offline LED lighting controller implements quasi-resonant flyback power converters to achieve high efficiency of up to 87%, small size and lower cost for AC/DC LED lighting drivers. The device's system-level features, such as overvoltage detection and shutdown, prevent system damage caused by an open LED string. Its over-temperature shutdown feature protects against excessive heat in the system, the company said.
The TPS92010 is designed for general lighting applications such as residential LED fixtures, retrofit LED bulbs, commercial troffers, and architectural and display lighting. The board can help speed adoption of energy-saving retrofit LED light bulbs.
The TPS92010 LED-lamp reference board will be available in mid-second quarter and is priced at US$49.95. The TPS92010 offline LED lighting controller is available now in an 8-pin SOIC package and is priced at US$0.43 in quantities of 1,000.
