The support for UltraHD (4K) resolutions and new video post processing enhancements that will improve 1080p videos when upscaled on UltraHD-enabled monitor or TVs, and the APUs use the current FM2+ socket compatibility for a unifying motherboard infrastructure. The AMD A-Series APU processor-in-a-box (PIBs) for the AMD A10-7850K and AMD A10-7700K, which started shipping in Q4 2013, are available starting today. The AMD A8-7600 will be shipping in Q1 2014. AMD www.amd.com 45W and 60W LED driver offers 3-in-1 dimming functionality Recom Lighting has introduced new series of 45 W and 60 W LED drivers for constant current LED luminaires. The RACD45-A and RACD60-A series come with a 3-in-1 dimming function so that the modules can be controlled with analog (1-10 V), PWM, or external resistor dimming. The series operate with input voltages between 90 VAC and 305 VAC and include 4 different models with current outputs ranging from 700 mA to 1850 mA (RACD45-A) and from 1050 mA to 4200 mA (RACD60-A). Due to their IP67-rated enclosures, these drivers are protected against dust and moisture so they can be installed in industrial or out-buildings as well as damp rooms like bathrooms or basements. These class 2 power supplies operate at temperatures ranging from -30°C up to 65°C, have efficiencies of more than 87% and feature low THD and an excellent power factor (>0.98 at 120 VAC, >0.93 at 240 VAC and >0.9 at 277 VAC). The LED drivers are UL8750 and EN61347 certified and comply with the European harmonics standard EN61000-3-2 Class C. They come with a five year warranty. Recom Lighting www.recom-lighting.com Open LED protector prevents damage from reverse polarity voltages Littlefuse has introduced the PLEDxUx Unidirectional Series Open LED Protector, the latest addition to the company’s broad portfolio of PLED Open LED protection devices. The device provides a switching electronic shunt path when one LED in a string fails as an open circuit. PLED devices are connected in parallel with each LED in a series string. If one LED fails, the PLED connected to it turns on and carries the current that would have gone through the failed LED, so the remainder of the string continues to function. PLEDxUX devices provide reverse battery/power polarity protection for greater LED reliability. Typical applications include street, subway, runway, and tunnel lighting, as well as headlights, roadside warning lights, and signage. PLEDxUx Series devices are compatible with 1-watt LEDs, nominally 350mA at 3V. Two different low-profile packages maximize heat dissipation and layout flexibility. In contrast with earlier open LED protection solutions such as silicon controlled rectifiers (SCRs) and zener diodes, the PLEDxUx Series offers higher reliability and lower maintenance requirements. Zener diodes create additional power dissipation once the LEDs they’re protecting fail open. They are also not rated for large DC currents.
