Dialog Semiconductor plc Announces the Use of its Smartbond(TM) DA14580 System on Chip (SoC) in the Cateye Strada Smart Cyclocomputer

Dialog Semiconductor Plc announced the use of its SmartBond(TM) DA14580 System on Chip (SoC) in the Cateye Strada Smart Cyclocomputer. The DA14580 meets the demanding requirements fuelled by the growing popularity of the adoption of sensor technology in the health and fitness sector. The demand for Bluetooth Smart-enabled fitness devices that incorporate sensors has increased dramatically as Bluetooth Smart has proved to be the most effective way to transfer the sensor data wirelessly to smartphone or tablet-type device. In the wake of the explosion in the health and fitness market, consumers want to be able to collect, store and later analyse on their handheld devices the large amounts of information in order to monitor fitness levels and training progress. To meet these expectations, manufacturers require SoC's with a small form factor and the lowest possible power consumption to support the sensors integrated in the fitness device to measure pace, pulse, cadence, distance, and other workout information. In combination with a variety of analog and digital interfaces and including an embedded ARM Cortex(TM) M0 processor, the DA14580 has the lowest power available with less than 15mW active, 600 nA standby current, and with the smallest package sized at 2.5x2.5x0.5mm, it is half the size of competing solutions. In this particular application for Cateye, the DA14580 demonstrates the unique capability of functioning concurrently in both "master" and "slave" modes.

Dialog Semiconductor Plc Introduced 45 W LED Driver Addresses Dimming, Heat and Cost in High Power SSL Bulbs

Dialog Semiconductor Plc introduced its latest single-stage LED driver to address dimming performance, heat and cost in high power, dimmable solid state lighting applications. The new 45W output iW3600 seamlessly dims from 100% down to 1% of measured light with virtually no dead travel and offers low pop-on current to turn light on at very low dimmer levels (< 5% of light output). It also uses Dialog's patented, configurable over-temperature protection de-rating to tackle LED bulb lifetime issues caused by excessive heat, while its single-stage, digital design lowers Bill Of Material costs for lighting OEMs. Designed for retrofit bulbs including external, dimmable lighting ballast drivers and A19, PAR and T8 bulb replacements used in existing phase-cut dimmer installations, the iW3600 incorporates Dialog's patented intelligent dimming control to provide compatibility with a wider range of dimmers, including TRIAC, digital and universal dimmers. This technology uses digital analytics to query the dimmer and applies algorithms that automatically adapt to the dimmer type. Dialog's patented over-temperature protection de-rating technology addresses LED bulb lifetime issues caused by excessive heat in retrofit bulb installations. Most power ICs are designed with thermal shutdown, which simply shuts the IC down in high temperature environments. This procedure protects the IC, but not the LED driver circuit, since most control IC shutdown occurs well above safe operating temperatures for electrolytic capacitors. The iW3600's built-in configurable temperature de-rating technology monitors the temperature inside the sealed SSL bulb and, in high temperatures, automatically reduces current drive to the LEDs in small, virtually imperceptible increments, then seamlessly restores brightness as temperature falls. This results in cooler operation in low airflow bulb installations, avoids exceeding the temperature rating of the electrolytic capacitors, and helps ensure a predictable and safer bulb operating life. iW3600 key features: output power: 45 W. Single-stage design for low BOM cost, built-in, configurable LED over-temperature protection de-rating. Wide dimmer compatibility (TRIAC, digital), automatic detection of dimmer type. Wide dimming range: 1% to 100%. Lowest pop-on current < 5% of light output. Configurable dimming curves compliant to NEMA SSL 6 dimming standard. Meets global standards, including European Union IEC61000-3-2 current harmonics requirements. Zhaga hot-plug compliant. Low total harmonic distortion < 20% with high PF > 0.92. The iW3600 is available now in production quantities. It comes in a standard, 8-lead SOIC package and is priced at $0.52 each in 1,000-piece quantities.

Dialog Semiconductor plc Introduces iW3640 Solid State Lighting LED Driver

Dialog Semiconductor plc introduced its iW3640 solid state lighting (SSL) LED driver, designed to bring mood-enhancing ambiance to price-sensitive SSL bulbs. The iW3640 2-channel, 25W SSL LED driver offers a simple, low-cost, dimmable colour-mixing solution to achieve warm incandescent-like dimming while eliminating the need for a microcontroller and dedicated power supply. This reduces the bill of materials (BOM) cost for 75W to 150W-equivalent A19 SSL and PAR bulbs, as well as 20W to 45W commercial dimmable external lighting ballasts. iW3640 SSL LED Driver Key Features: 2-channel, sunset dimming SSL LED driver: 25W output power; Low BOM cost - no external MCU or power supply; PrimAccurate(TM) control eliminates secondary-side regulator or optical feedback isolator; NTC-based LED over-temperature protection derating; High power factor (PF) > 0.95, low total harmonic distortion (THD) < 15%; Phase-cut dimming with wide dimmer compatibility, automatic detection of dimmer type; Wide dimming range: 1% to 100%; Meets global energy standards, including European Union IEC61000-3-2; NEMA SSL 6 compliant; Zhaga hot-plug compliant. The iW3640 is available now in production quantities. It comes in a standard, 14-lead SOIC package and is priced at USD 0.94 each in 1000-piece quantities.
