Cirrus Logic's new digital LED controller in stock at Newark element14
CS163X family features two-color mixing and near 100 percent TRIAC dimmer compatibility
CHICAGO—JUNE 28, 2012 - Newark/element14, the leading distributor of electronic components and engineering solutions in the Americas and a business of Premier Farnell (LSE:pfl), today announced the availability of Cirrus Logic's newest family of digital LED controllers, the CS163X family featuring TruDim™ dimmer compatibility technology, designed to accelerate worldwide adoption of LED retrofit bulbs.
With TruDim digital intelligence technology, the controller can identify the type of dimmer in use and adapt its dimmer compatibility algorithm to provide smooth dimming in much the same way consumers have come to expect from decades of using incandescent light bulbs.
The new CS163X family also provides two-channel LED color mixing capabilities, allowing LED bulb manufacturers to more efficiently create warm, natural light quality while also lowering the cost barrier for two-channel LED retrofit bulbs.
The complete Cirrus Logic line is available for same-day shipping at http://www.newark.com/cirrus-logic. A comprehensive lighting product portfolio and detailed technical information including white papers, video training and design tools can be seen at http://www.newark.com/lighting
