Mouser Electronics today announced stock on the industry’s first development platforms for DALI, DMX512, and KNX networks based on the ARM Cortex-M0 microcontrollers from NXP Semiconductors. By bringing LPC1100XL to lighting control systems, NXP is making it straightforward for lighting designers to upgrade from existing solutions without increasing costs.
The OM13026 DALI NGX Reference Board allows designers to make a DALI network with extra low-power energy savings using the LPC1100XL MCUs, a compelling solution for green-building regulations and where energy savings are critical.
The OM13043 DMX512 Kit includes a master board and a slave board enabling designers to create both communication and power stages for DMX512-based systems. The slave module is built around the LPC1110XL MCU and features four DMX controlled LEDs, while the master controller and monitoring board enables Remote Device Management with the USB enabled LPC11U00.
The OM13042 KNX Design Board simplifies the design process for building automation applications such as lighting switches and control, HVAC control, shutters, and occupancy detection. Featuring NXP’s LPC1227 MCU and ON Semiconductor’s NCN5120 transceiver, it is suitable for use in KNX twisted pair networks.
NXP’s Lighting Development Boards and reference designs reduce development time and reduce the bill of materials, while increasing performance and lowering power consumption.
