The thrust of power electronics in lighting is directed mainly at LED technology, which has now firmly entered the arena of space illumination. LEDs are operated by power electronic controls, allowing for maximum efficiency and brightness management, a specialty of mSemicon.

This is a technology that is in constant change, with devices improving their performance at lightning speeds, often being upgraded at well under 12-month intervals.

mSemicon has developed a number of controls for LED lighting. These include very high-power array-based solutions with the equivalent light output of hundreds of watts of incandescent bulbs down to very bright signalling lights for emergency vehicles.

Lighting Communication Systems

Some more sophisticated lighting applications require communications protocols to be put in place, such as DALI and DMX 512, allowing for greater control. mSemicon is quite familiar with these.
