Dimmable LED Designs Using LYTSwitch-7 Are Now Available

August 9th, 2016

Three new designs using LYTSwitch-7, Power Integrations' latest LED driver IC, are now available for download. LYTSwitch-7 LED driver ICs have a component count that is approximately 40% less than for conventional circuits and are capable of delivering up to 22 watts without a heatsink in a very small SO-8 footprint.

Each of the following designs are dimmable, power factor corrected, and non-isolated:

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

July 19th, 2016

Power Integrations 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.
