eldoLED Announces World’s Smallest RGBW LED Driver/Controller

Recently, eldoLED has introduced a highly integrated 15 Watt RGB(W) LED driver - L-Dot Pico. The company says the L-Dot Pico is ideal for integration into the smallest of lighting fixtures.

The company stresses that the L-Dot Pico is a breakthrough in LED drive, networking and control form factor. eldoLED technology drives up to 4 LED colour groups from a single, high-precision LED current source, which made the L-Dot Pico’ power efficiency of up to 95%.
 
The L-Dot pico supports a 15-bit control resolution per output channel for accurate dimming and fine colour mixing. The L-Dot Pico’s high efficiency leads to a lower heat generation, which means a much smaller heat sink suffices to dissipate its heat. The Pico can even share the heat sink of the LED engine, lowering total system costs. Furthermore, it features an interface for the connection of an NTC, enabling various ways of thermal control, including LED throttling.
   
The remarkably small size of the L-Dot Pico makes it ideally suited for in-fixture installation, leading to less cabling, increased design freedom and improved system cost for luminaire manufacturers.
   
ShowMaster, the part of the freely available TOOLbox software, supported on all eldoLED driver/controllers, allows you to create, manage and upload show sequences for use in standalone mode. ShowMaster is part of the freely available TOOLbox software.
   
The L-Dot Pico Technical data including:
• Dimensions: 25mm/0.98” diameter, 4.5mm/0.18” height
• Operating supply voltage range: 12V – 28V DC
• Power output: up to 15Watt
• LED current: 350mA – 700mA
• Supported DMX network resolutions: 8- and 16-bit
• Set point resolution: up to 15-bit
• Contrast ratio: up to 8,000:1
• Onboard thermal sensor interface for connection of NTC
• Uploaded show sequences: 9 standard eldoLED shows, customer-defined shows, or ShowMaster
