Hauppauge, N.Y.Zetex Semiconductors has developed a dedicated chipset and reference design for MR16-compatible LED lamps.
According to Zetex, the chipset significantly decreases PCB size and weight in lamp necks, lowers manufacturing costs, and reduces the component count of existing products by up to 50%.
The Zetex MR16 chipset is highly integrated, handling all associated power rectification, LED current control and protection functions. It enhances lighting class LED's reduced Total-Cost-of-Ownership (TCO) over halogen reflector lamps, the current format in directional lighting applications.
Pricing: $0.90 in 1,000-quantities.
Availability: Now from authorized distributors; delivery is 4-6 weeks in production volumes.
