The LED driver IC enables reduction of
power loss during switching and critical-conduction mode allows power factor
correction control using few external components and realizes a power factor of
0.9 or higher.
A variety of control modes can be
achieved by changing the configuration of the externally connected elements.
Examples include buck-boost control, average-current control, peak-current
control and constant-input-power control.
Renesas Electronics' R2A20134 LED driver IC also can be employed in TRIAC dimmer applications
by applying a voltage matched to the TRIAC phase to the feedback pin for constant-current control.
Samples of Renesas Electronics' new LED
driver IC will be available starting in December 2010,
priced at $1 per unit. Mass production is scheduled to begin in March 2011.
These are the toys that inspired budding engineers to try out sublime designs, create miniature structures, and experiment with bizarre contraptions using sets that could be torn down and reconstructed over and over.
PowerStream is deploying the microgrid at its headquarters to demonstrate how people can generate and distribute their own energy and make their homes and businesses more sustainable through renewables.
