Bright solutions for today’s commercial applications
There is an increased demand for smart lighting solutions in commercial and residential buildings to reduce installation, maintenance, and operating costs. A reduction of energy consumption while still increasing the comfort and attractiveness for users and tenants needs to be achieved. Due to that wireless lighting control is gaining momentum with the growth of the IoT.
A standard to realize wireless lighting control has been established with NFC. LED power supply units and LED drivers with integrated NFC interface are getting more and more common. To implement NFC control into a led product there is not more needed than an antenna. NFC antennas send signals to a receiver using electro magnetic induction. In case of a LED application, the receiver would be the LED driver that controls the light. By that the current to the LED can be regulated, and the light can be switched off or dimmed.
The benefits of this technology are the wireless linking and the programming of the LED driver. No cable is needed to connect the driver to the user interface, and multiple drivers can be controlled without effort. Also enhanced diagnosis functions can be realized by using the NFC communication for maintenance purposes of LED lighting systems.
Create innovative and differentiated LED lighting control systems with our latest NFC ICs combined with highly efficient power management solutions for high-density LED drivers with wide dimming range.
