Cypress Semiconductor Corp. announced that its PSoC Designer 5.0 visual design software and the CY3265C-RGB evaluation kit are simplifying the design of RGB-based white lighting LED systems with Cree XLamp LEDs.

Using the PSoC Designer 5.0 and CY3265C-RGB evaluation kit, designers can simply input the selected XLamp device; select bin specifications through easy-to-use drop-down menus; and select white light temperature points as well as specific color points for optimal reproduction of any type of desired light outputwithout having to write a single line of firmware. Lighting designers no longer need to be experts in LED binning and temperature specifications. Instead they can focus on desired lighting effects, bringing solutions to market more quickly and efficiently.

Cypress's intelligent lighting solutions simplify white lighting designs by giving users the ability to select white light temperatures points on a gamut in PSoC Designer 5.0 software. Cypress has integrated the XLamp device specifications and temperature characteristics into the content library of PSoC Designer 5.0 software, which supports Cypress's EZ-Color LED controllers. With other LED controllers, engineers must input specific device binning and temperature performance data. Cypress has introduced the CY3265C-RGB evaluation kit enabling designers to begin simplified system design with XLamp LEDs.

"We are pleased to support Cree's XLamp portfolio with our intelligent lighting solutions," said Curt Davis, VP of Cypress's PowerPSoC business unit, which includes intelligent lighting solutions. "Cree has earned a leadership position in bringing LED lighting to the mainstream, and our intelligent lighting solutions can simplify general illumination designs with the XLamp offerings."

The CY3265C-RGB evaluation kit provides the firmware to support XLamp LEDs. The kit comes with a daughter card featuring XLamp LEDs, and includes a MiniProg, a 5v LCD display, a USB cable, a CD with PSoC Designer 5.0, Gerber files and schematics.
