STLUX development platform shores up LED lighting designs

Posted: 20 May 2014  Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:STMicroelectronics  STLUX  lighting  development platform 

STMicroelectronics has revealed a development environment for designing LED lighting with its lighting controller, STLUX385A. The platform comprises demonstration boards, a graphical configurator, software libraries, and compiler.

The company has developed plug-and-play demonstration board featuring all controller functionalities and a user-friendly ecosystem for programming PWM waveforms using the six on-chip SMED (State Machines Event Driven) digital controllers.

The SMED is an advanced hardware-configurable state machine where state advancement is automatically triggered by internal or external events thereby ensuring faster response than a conventional interrupt-driven microprocessor. In addition, the controller supports smart-grid connectivity and digitally addressable lighting interface communication for remote control, enabling use in energy-efficient lighting throughout smart cities.

Using the STLUX development environment, designers can control the STLUX385A via a serial line and a console. The graphical SMED configurator simplifies design of innovative topologies targeting maximum efficiency at full load with minimum energy consumption in idle conditions, high-quality dimming with high current-control precision. Ready-to-use application examples are also provided.

The demonstration boards are currently available for sampling from ST. For further information and links to all components of STLUX ecosystem, please visit www.st.com/stlux_development_kit

STLUX development environment

The development board is expected to help designers familiarise themselves with the STLUX385A device and the innovative SMED (state machine, event driven) functionality.
