San Jose, Calif.With the intent of making it easier to design custom-color lighting systems with Luxeon K2 power LEDs from Philips Lumileds, Cypress Semiconductor has developed a codeless method using its EZ-Color controller family.
Using Cypress's PSoC Express 3.0 visual design software, designers can input the selected Luxeon K2 device; select bin specifications through easy-to-use, drop-down menus; and choose a colorwithout having to write a single line of microcontroller code.
Cypress has integrated the Luxeon K2 device specifications and temperature characteristics into the content library of PSoC Express 3.0 embedded visual design software. PSoC Express 3.0 supports Cypress's EZ-Color high-brightness (HB) LED controllers.
