SMART ALGORITHM TRIPLES SERVICE LIFE OF POWER SUPPLIES

New modulation method increases operational lifetime of switching power units through digital, highly dynamic control and the use of film capacitors. SMART ALGORITHM TRIPLES SERVICE LIFE OF POWER SUPPLIES Switching power units are used for the power supply of many electrical devices, e.g. computers, LED lights or laser welding equipment. They convert alternating current from the mains into the direct curren ...

HOMEBREW DMX-CONTROLLED RGB LED LIGHT

This project is a small DMX-512 controlled, color-changing RGB LED light. The light can be controlled via the DMX512 protocol or it can run a number of built-in programs depending on how the software is configured. The light incorporates an advanced 16-bit PIC24 microcontroller with PWM capabilities, a 3D printed enclosure, a laser cut acrylic lid, a custom switching power supply, and a MEMS oscillator. The ...

USB STACK LIGHT CONTROLLER BASED ON PIC16F1459

After using the PIC16F1459 to build numerous USB HID input devices including a giant keyboard, a tiny keyboard, and a big red button, it was time to see if the PIC16F1459 could be used to control outputs too. Sticking with the industrial theme, I chose to build a USB controller for a, um, stack of industrial stack lights. Industrial Stack Lights Industrial stack lights are usually used to indicate the statu ...

1MM HEIGHT SMD LED CAN BE PLACED UPSIDE DOWN.

Kingbright KPTR series, suitable for reverse mounting, makes it possible to achieve that the LED is hidden in the PCB. Naturally, manufacturing LED with a zero height is most likely unreal at the current physics status and 3D experience of the world. Nevertheless, it´s still possible to reach the goal that the LED wouldn’t stick out of the PCB – by the above mentioned “reverse” mounting, alias by mounting f ...

HEPHAESTUS – A FULLY DIY 3D PRINTER

I finally did it, I designed and built my own 3D printer. This is in no way “the best 3D printer”. Instead, this was an epic and nightmare project that exercised my ability to engineer and build my own CNC machine. Along the way, I figured out what I did well and what I did badly, mistakes were made and sometimes fixed, even ignored. This 3D printer is named Haphaestus. This wasn’t some kit that I purchased ...

LINEAR LED CONTROLLER ICS TARGET DIMMABLE LIGHTING APPLICATIONS

Two linear LED controller ICs have been added to the BCR portfolio, by Infineon Technologies. The BCR601 has voltage feedback to the primary side (also known as active headroom control or AHC), for cost effective and power efficiency LED driver applications. The BCR602 targets dimmable LED applications such as light engines, modules and strips. It has a wide voltage range of up to 60V makes it suitable for ...
