MSC and Cypress Offer Intelligent LED Lighting Solution

MSC Vertriebs GmbH presents Cypress’s newly announced Powerline Communication solution and AC-DC digital power controllers for LED lighting, as well as the PowerPSoC® family of integrated embedded power controllers.

The new AC-DC controllers offer a cost-effective solution for both non-dimmable and dimmable LED lighting, delivering high efficiency while meeting EnergyStar requirements. They provide automatic dimmer detection; they operate with the majority of the existing installed base of wall dimmers, providing dimming down to 2%.

The AC-DC controllers complement the PowerPSoC family of embedded power controllers, the industry’s first single-chip solution for both controlling and driving high-power LEDs. 

Both, the AC-DC family and the PowerPSoC family cover a wide range of LED applications, from LED retrofit bulbs to high-end LED luminaires that require a variety of functions such as communications, diagnostics, color-changing, etc.

About Cypress’s Intelligent Lighting Solutions:
LED designs offer significant new challenges for legacy lighting engineers, including efficient driving and functional dimming. Cypress offers a full range of lighting solutions, beginning with the stand-alone AC-DC Power Controllers for LED retrofits. PowerPSoC, the world’s first programmable power controller, provides the highest level of intelligent integration available, combining onboard power regulation and power drive with a microcontroller capable of 16-bit dimming to full custom color mixing. Cypress offers temperature or optical feedback algorithms that are automatically applied to the selected design, which can save anywhere from weeks to months of design time. Cypress also offers communication resources, including wireless and Powerline solutions, for customers who wish to avoid expensive rewiring
