Sharp to Launch LED Controller for Indoor Lighting Applications

Sharp Corporation has developed and will introduce the LR56001 LED controller for LED ceiling lights, allowing users to adjust the brightness and color of three types of LEDs: cool white, warm white, and night light.

The demand of long-life, energy-saving LED lighting is growing and its use is expected to expand for indoor lighting fixtures, such as ceiling lights and light bulbs.

The LR56001 LED controller can independently control up to three types of LED lights. This allows the user to choose among three types of ceiling lights - cool white, warm white and night light - with each at the desired level of brightness. By adjusting the brightness of cool white and warm white lights the user is able to change the color emitted, anywhere from a warm red color to a cool light blue color. Further, the LR56001 has a built-in chopper circuit(1), which prevents power loss even when the forward voltage of the three types of LED differs.

With this entry into the market for LED controllers for indoor lighting, Sharp will bring improved convenience and energy efficiency to LED lighting.
