Keywords:NXP? microcontrollers? triacs? shunt resistor? LPC?

This application note describes the connection of NXP LPC microcontrollers and three-quadrant (Hi-Com) triacs to control any resistive or inductive load at mains voltage. A one-for-all control method is presented that uses a current zero-crossing detection method without need for a shunt resistor in the load current line.
