Single-chip solution for controlling and driving high-power LEDs.

An integrated embedded power controller claims to be the industry’s first single-chip solution for controlling and driving high-power LEDs. The Cypress PowerPSoC family launched by MSC Vertriebs, integrates four constant-current regulators and four 32 V MOSFETs with Cypress’ programmable system-on-chip (PSoC), which includes a microcontroller, programmable analogue and digital blocks as well as memory.

This high level of integration provides customers with a single-chip solution for high-quality LED-based lighting products and extends into other embedded applications such as white goods and industrial control. The results are end systems with less components, faster design cycles, lower power consumption and higher reliability.

The software for PowerPSoC is the PSoC Designer development tool. It enables a quicker and more efficient programming of the controller for various lighting and power options. It also allows changes late in the design cycle without any changes in the circuit board layout.
