NXP Claims First Integrated Dimmable Mains LED Driver IC
NXP Semiconductors has announced the launch of the SSL2101 - the world’s first integrated dimmable mains LED driver. The NXP SSL2101 is a small form factor Switched Mode Power Supply (SMPS) controller IC specifically designed to drive LED devices and provide dimming capabilities to further improve the energy efficiency of LED lighting. The SSL2101 can drive lighting systems with variable power requirements which include LED retro-fit lamps, LED...
NXP launches TVS diodes and claims highest surge capability in FlatPower package
NXP Semiconductors has announced a range of transient voltage suppressor (TVS) diodes housed in its new FlatPower package, SOD123W. Offering a 400 W peak pulse power rating (10/1000µs), the new diodes dissipate app. 67 W/mm2 surge per PCB area. This is more than twice the surge capability on offer in the market by TVS products in similar packages. Such high surge capabilities over smaller areas will enable engineers to save space on the PCB whil...
