Newest Drivers Reach New Levels of Integration

NXP’s UBA2211 for the 230V and 110V markets is the latest driver IC family in the company’s CFL IC portfolio. Built on NXP’s EZ-HV SOI technology, it features the highest level of integration available on the market today, including a current controlled preheat function, enabling more compact designs, highly efficient power conversion, and extended CFL lifetimes in the range of 12,000 to 15,000 hours.

“As incandescent bulbs are phased out around the world and with the recent EU ban on 75W incandescent bulbs in effect, the time is now for CFLs to prove they can offer better quality of light at lower costs. NXP driver ICs such as the UBA2211 offer breakthrough quality, performance and features that enable CFL manufacturers to match consumer expectations for quality lighting in the home,” says Jacques LE BERRE, director of marketing and business development, Lighting Solutions, NXP Semiconductors.
