NXP Semiconductors announced the GreenChip SSL4101T controller IC, an addition to its broad GreenChip™ SSL family of products, which offers new levels of professional-grade performance for Solid State LED lighting power supplies. The GreenChip SSL4101T enables LED lighting for medium to high power commercial and professional applications with industry-leading performance in Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 20 percent, a high Power Factor (PF) of .99, and high efficiency of 94 percent.

“GreenChip technology lies at the heart of NXP’s cost-effective, highly-efficient power and lighting ICs. The newly announced GreenChip SSL4101T offers a professional-grade solution with levels of efficiency of up to 94 percent, which is enabling LED adoption into a wider-range of professional lighting applications such as high bay and low bay lighting found in warehouses; and street lighting, where brightness and dependable illumination are essential.”

The GreenChip SSL4101T is based on NXP’s unique high voltage process and enables direct start-up from the rectified universal mains voltage in an effective, eco-friendly way. The multi-chip module contains both a flyback controller and a controller for Power Factor Correction, and provides high efficiency at all power levels. The new GreenChip SSL4101T is ideally suited for LED lighting applications that require a very efficient, low THD, high PF, true universal input voltage and cost-effective power supply solution ranging between 10 W and 300 W.

The GreenChip SSL4101T will be available in April 2011. Pricing starts at US $3.60 per piece.
