Infineon Lighting RGB LED Arduino Shield
The RGB LED Lighting Shield from Infineon Technologies is one of the first intelligent evaluation boards being compatible with Arduino as well as Infineon’s XMC1100 BOOT KIT. It is designed to be easy configurable and combinable for different LED light engines and lamps for fast prototyping and inexpensive evaluation of LED lighting applications.
The RGB LED Lighting Shield uses a DC-DC buck topology and is able to drive up to 3 LED channels with constant current. The shield itself is powered by a programmable XMC 32-bit ARM® powered MCU with embedded Brightness Color Control Unit (BCCU, XMC1200 MCU series), which is capable of delivering flicker-free LED dimming and color control.
The BCCU enables extreme low cost but high quality LED lighting solution, with minimal user code. The RGB LED Lighting Shield has also been designed to provide options for the evaluation of smooth, eye-friendly diming, color mixing for different topologies, and it can be extended with e.g. with DALI/DMX or Radar).
