N2Power has come out with XL375LED constant current versions of its 375W AC-DC power supply. The new units are designed to drive strings of LEDs in high power lamps for industrial, entertainment and outdoor lighting requirements.
The XL375LED models offer single main outputs of 12, 24, 28, 36, 40, 48 or 56VDC maximum. They also have a 12V/1A auxiliary output and a 5V/1A standby output.
The 1.50 inch high package has a footprint of 3.3 x 5 inches (8.38 x 12.7cm) for a power density of over 15W/in3 and is up to 93% efficient.
Other features of the XL375LED include active power factor correction, current sharing and inrush current protection.
The XL375LED has a universal AC input (90-305VAC, is RoHS compliant and meets all major international safety and EMC requirements.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
