Texas Instruments Debuts TPS92075 Controller, TPS92560 Lighting Driver

Texas Instruments (TI) TPS92075 controller and TPS92560 lighting driver

Texas Instruments announced the TPS92075 controller and TPS92560 lighting driver. According to TI, the TPS92075 is the industry’s smallest off-line, phase-dimmable, constant-current lighting controller. The TPS92560 simplifies the retrofit of a variety of LED bulbs, including E14, GU10, A19, PAR20/30/38, MR16 and AR111. The TPS92075 controller and TPS92560 driver reduce component count and solution size while improving compatibility with legacy lighting controls.

The TPS92560 and TPS92075 are available in volume now. The TPS92075 is offered in a 10-pin PowerPad MSOP package. The TPS92560 is priced at $0.72 each in 1,000-unit quantities. The TPS92075 is offered in an 8-pin SOIC package, and a small 6-pin TSOT package. It will be available in March, and is priced at $0.75.

The TPS92075 is designed for phase-dimmable, offline AC/DC LED lamp and downlight applications. It features power factor correction above 0.9, and delivers smooth, flicker-free dimming when used with conventional wall dimmers. The TPS92560 is ideal for low-voltage AC or low-voltage DC LED lamp applications such as MR16 and AR111. It uses a proprietary input current control method, which improves compatibility with electronic transformers.
