iWatt, a supplier of digital-centric power management integrated circuits (ICs), has recently declared the delivery of 100,000 LED driver ICs for applications in high-power street lights of 200 W.
iWatt is renowned for its high-performance ICs that act as an excellent power source for media tablets and smart phones. Besides its energizing capability, iWatt’s IC can also retrofit LED-backlit LCDTVs and LED SSL lighting. The multiple features of iWatt’s offerings promote the company’s expansion into more advanced applications.
iWatt’s PrimAccurate technology removes the requirement of optical isolators in off-line power supplies and also reduces bill-of-material (BOM) expenses, leading to enhanced reliability. This proprietary innovative technology forms the basis of street light solution. The iWatt installation includes two stages - AC/DC converters and a power factor correction (PFC) circuit which can affordably and effectively replace conventional three-stage solutions having PFC circuit, and an AC/DC stage followed by DC/DC converters.
Shenzhen Ruijing Industrial’s R&D Director, Mr. Zou Xian Hua said that the innovative products from iWatt enabled efficient heat minimization in street light, in addition to reducing the overall BOM. Furthermore, iWatt’s modular approach ensures both simplification and customization of solutions based on power requirements by end-users.
