New 50w LED Retrofit Kits for Wall Packs Announced by Access Fixtures
December 16, 2014
Access Fixtures has expanded its LED retrofit product line by adding50w LED retrofit kitsfor wall packs and other types of area lights. Previously only available in a 25w version, the 50w LED retrofit kit enables property managers and electrical contractors to update to energy-efficient LED without the added cost of purchasing new fixtures. This is the ideal solution for fixtures that are architecturally unique or have historical value. The retrofit kit replaces up to 250w HID lamps and ballasts for most standardwall packsand many other types of area lights.

Chip-Scale Bi-Directional MOSFETs from Diodes Incorporated Save Space to Enable Higher Capacity Lithium Batteries
December 16, 2014
Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD), a leading global manufacturer and supplier of high-quality application specific standard products within the broad discrete, logic and analog semiconductor markets, today introduced chip-scale bi-directional MOSFETs. The DMN2023UCB4 provides superior protection for charging 1- and 2-cell lithium batteries. Its low on-state resistance reduces power loss while its thin chip-scale packaging allows designers to use the space saved to increase battery capacity. Target end-markets include smartphones, tablets, cameras, portable media players, and similar consumer products where size, weight and battery life are all key performance factors.

ON Semiconductor Introduces Two New Series of Power Factor Corrected Ac-Dc Drivers for LED Lighting Applications; Extends single stage solutions with high power factor capability and broadens two stage solutions up to 150 watts
December 15, 2014
ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN ), driving energy efficient innovations, announces two new series of power factor corrected (PFC) offline Ac-Dc drivers for high performance LED lighting applications. Extending the NCL3008x family of products, the NCL30085 , NCL30086 and NCL30088 address single stage design implementations up to 60 watts (W) that require high power factor. The NCL30030 broadens the existing solutions which support higher power (up to 150 W) two stage topologies that require low optical ripple and wide LED forward voltage variation. "Compact, robust and flexible, these new PFC controllers address the need for higher performance solutions in the LED lamp and driver market," said Shane Chilton, senior director of the Ac-Dc Power Conversion division at ON Semiconductor. "These solutions deliver precise current regulation via our unique architecture. This translates into LED lighting designs that are more flexible and can be future proofed with a common control approach."
