NXP Semiconductors Releases UBA2211 Non-Dimmable CFL Driver ICs
NXP Semiconductors announced the release of the UBA2211, a new generation of non-dimmable CFL driver ICs for 230V and 110V fluorescent lamps based on GreenChipTM technology. The UBA2211 offers a fully integrated CFL driver along with a current controlled preheat function, enabling more compact fluorescent lamp designs, highly efficient power conversion, and extended CFL lifetimes in the range of 12,000 to 15,000 hours. In addition, NXP announced today the availability of the UBA2024B, also based on GreenChip technology, its first CFL driver with integrated switches tailored for the 110V market.
The UBA2211 family of integrated circuits are a range of high-voltage monolithic ICs for driving CFL in half-bridge configurations. The family is specifically designed to provide easy integration of lamp loads across a range of burner power and mains voltages. The UBA2211 integrates the adjustable current controlled preheat mode technology, a key requirement in the EU directive, which enables the preheat time to be set and facilitates in achieving extended lifetime of the CFLs. With its exceptionally small form factor, the UBA2211 significantly reduces the Bill of Materials (BOM) for manufacturers, thereby enabling volume production of high quality CFLs.
