Linear LED drivers increase efficiency in LED strips

Linear LED drivers increase efficiency in LED strips
The constant current regulators introduced by Diodes Incorporated, BCR401U, BCR402U and BCR405U, are appealing to lighting designers as they enable simple driving of low-current LED strips and panels in the commercial and industrial lighting sectors. Targeted at 12 and 24V linear LED strips, these regulators increase light output efficiency as they only require a 1.4V supply, allowing more LEDs in the string.

High voltage ICs give designers an advantage they can appreciate

High voltage ICs give designers an advantage they can appreciate
  It’s not easy being tasked with designing a 'better' DC/DC buck converter, which must transform a lightly regulated DC voltage into a tightly regulated source for motors, industrial equipment, and communications infrastructure; as always, the objective is higher efficiency, but without any penalty in size, complexity, or performance.
