WAC Lighting uses Cypress' multi-color
LED light controller SoC CY8CLED02 in its tape light sys
WAC Lighting has selected Cypress's EZ-Color high-brightness
LED (HBLED) controllers to control the LEDs in its new color-changing
tape light system. Cypress says based on its flexible PSoC
programmable system-on-chip, the EZ-Color solution enabled
WAC Lighting designers to quickly introduce the energy-efficient
INVISILED PALETTE system to the display and accent lighting
INVISILED PALETTE uses the CY8CLED02 EZ-Color controller
to manage red, green and blue diodes to create unique color-changing
capabilities. With EZ-Color's patent-pending PrISM (Precise
Illumination Signal Modulation) technology, the color changes
are programmed in a constant, smooth transition with adjustable
speed among the three colored diodes and can be stopped
at any point for a custom color effect. The PrISM modulation
technology also significantly reduces low-frequency flicker
and radiated electro-magnetic interference (EMI)-common
problems in LED lighting designs.
"The Cypress EZ-Color solution provided us the flexibility
and ease-of-use of the PSOC architecture while integrating
the color mixing algorithms we required for our INVISILED
PALETTE system," said Shelley Wang, President of WAC
Lighting and the 2009 recipient of the Residential Lighting
Industry Leadership Award. "The smooth color-changing
effects of the EZ-Color solution help PALETTE stand out
from the competition."
"WAC Lighting's innovative LED lighting systems are
a great showcase for Cypress's EZ-Color family," said
Curtis Davis, vice president of Cypress's PowerPSoC Division.
"The PALETTE system shows how our EZ-Color solution
streamlines design with HBLEDs while also bringing smart
lighting effects to the market."
