TRIAC-Dimmable LYTSwitch-7 LED Driver ICs From Power Integrations Cut BOM Count by 40%

Bleeder-less, highly efficient, robust IC family serves bulbs, tubes and fixtures up to 22 W

SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 19, 2016 — Power Integrations (Nasdaq: POWI), the leader in high-efficiency, high-reliability LED driver ICs, today announced its LYTSwitch™-7 single-stage, non-isolated, TRIAC-dimmable, buck topology LED driver IC family. Capable of delivering up to 22 watts without a heatsink in a very small SO-8 footprint, these high-efficiency devices are suitable for bulbs, tubes and fixtures. LYTSwitch-7 designs do not require bleeders; employing simple, passive damping for TRIAC management and an off-the-shelf, single-winding inductor, reducing component count to just 20, as compared to approximately 35 parts for typical dimmable LED driver boards.

LYTSwitch-7 ICs deliver a phase-cut (TRIAC) dimming solution with a wide dimming range and monotonic dimming response. The LED drivers enable efficiency of greater than 86% - around 2% higher than conventional dimmable products – with high PF, accurate regulation and comprehensive protection. They suit low- or high-line input as well as wide-range universal-input designs for U.S. commercial lighting applications, which operate from 90 VAC to 305 VAC with TRIAC dimming enabled in low-line installations.

Comments Hubertus Notohamiprodjo, director of product marketing at Power Integrations: “Our new LYTSwitch-7 LED driver ICs provide a highly robust solution while requiring a BOM count that is approximately 40% less than conventional circuits. The internal 725 V MOSFET delivers better withstand performance during line surges, while the bleeder-less design has high TRIAC compatibility but does not produce wasted heat, resulting in a more efficient and reliable driver.”

Like all Power Integrations LED drivers, LYTSwitch-7 ICs have a host of protection features including thermal foldback with end-stop shutdown, which protects the IC, driver and fixture at abnormally-high ambient temperatures by automatically reducing the current flow and dimming the lamp. Developers find that thermal foldback is the key to reducing costs associated with over-design of both electrical and mechanical components to meet reliability goals since the IC automatically limits unusual temperature excursions without extinguishing the lamp. Devices are also protected from open- and short-circuit conditions, input and output OV, overcurrent and SOA. LYTSwitch-7 ICs meet international standards including: DOE Level 6 (external power supply), CEC Titles 20 and 24, ENERGY STAR® Lamps Program Requirements Version 2.0, NEMA SSL-7A and EN61000-3-2 (C&D).

Key applications include low-cost A19 lamps, small-form-factor lamps such as candle-style and GU10 bulbs, commercial & industrial applications, ceiling lamps and downlight fixtures. LYTSwitch-7 IC samples are available now. Devices are priced at $0.33 in 10,000-piece quantities. Two reference designs (DER-539 and DER-540) are available for download now from the Power Integrations website at  https://www.power.com/lytswitch-7.
