Power Integrations Launches Convenient Online Selection Tool for LED Driver Reference Designs

Power Integrations, maker of the world's most efficient, longest-lasting off-line LED driver ICs, today launched an online selection tool that enables users to rapidly identify the best power supply reference design for their LED lighting application. The LED Design Selector allows engineers to enter simple selection criteria and provides the best choice from Power Integrations' library of reference design options for LED lighting.

Starting with basic decisions such as application and power level, the LED Design Selector enables users to quickly and easily see the filtered, optimized results. For example, the new LED Design Selector eliminates the laborious process of screening multiple designs while evaluating the effect of isolated vs. non-isolated topology or power range. After new data are entered, the best solutions are immediately displayed, enabling the designer to make a rapid and informed choice.

Comments Andrew Smith, product marketing manager for LED lighting applications at Power Integrations: "The LED Design Selector is ideal for lighting designers working to optimize their LED driver based on multiple electrical and physical design requirements. Using the new tool, engineers can quickly identify the best design approach and clearly understand the design trade-offs."

The LED Design Selector is available at http://www.powerint.com/en/applications/led-driver-ics/led-design-selector.
