ON Semiconductor has announced two new devices designed to enhance the performance of connected lighting systems.

The NCL31000 and NCL31001 LED drivers allow manufacturers to develop LED luminaires with light-based positioning technology and visible light communication.

The NCL31000 from ON Semiconductor is part of an extensive LED driver family and is designed specifically for luminaire applications.

According to On Semiconductor’s, the device is a highly energy efficient buck LED driver that supports both high-bandwidth analog dimming and PWM dimming down to zero current ensuring there is no ghost light.

The driver includes an integrated 3V3 fixed DC-DC converter as well as an ADC that measures system voltages, currents, and temperature to monitor LED and overall system efficiency.

Using a serial (I2C / SPI) interface makes all diagnostic data available to an external MCU that can monitor and control the intelligent lighting system.
