Infineon Adds DALI Stack to Advance Lighting Applications with XMC™ Microcontrollers

At the Embedded World 2017 Exhibition and Conference, Infineon Technologies AG presents its ARM®-based XMC™ microcontroller advancements for a wide range of industrial applications as well as motor control solutions based on iMotion™. The novelties include development support that significantly reduces design complexity, development time and system cost, and helps speed-up DALI certified LED designs.
LED development kit with DALI v2 certified software stack

Optimizing its development support for LED lighting applications, Infineon now cooperates with Xenerqi Ltd. headquartered in Hong Kong. Together the companies will develop a DALI v2.0 certified software stack for the microcontroller family XMC1000, using an ARM® Cortex®-M0 processor. The stack will be certified on a Xenerqi proprietary LED control board, on its family of LED drivers and on a XMC1300 LED kit of Infineon. Designers of LED lighting systems benefit immensely from such a certified kit plus software as it may cut by half the regular development times of a DALI v2.0 certified slave to control LED lamps. A first trial version of the software stack will be presented at Embedded World. The DALI v2.0 certified software stack plus reference kit is scheduled to be available as of mid-2017.

Infineon at Embedded World 2017 and further information

Infineon will demonstrate its microcontroller novelties and semiconductor solutions for the smart factory, smart home and smart vehicle at Embedded World 2017 Exhibition & Conference (Nuremberg, Germany; March 14-16, 2017). Infineon exhibition highlights are available at www.infineon.com/embeddedworld or at booth 231 in hall 3A.

www.infineon.com/xmc offers information on the XMC microcontrollers. Details on the free integrated development platform environment DAVE™ are available at www.infineon.com/dave and www.infineon.com/xmc-dev. DAVE is for all XMC microcontrollers and makes development of application-oriented software user-friendly. Also, it eases transition between the XMC1000 and XMC4000 families.
