LAUNCHING THE LIGHTING SYSTEM CREATOR (LSC) VERSION 1.1

Montreal, QC – November 30, 2016 – Future Lighting Solutions, the world-class leader and innovator in demand creation, marketing and distribution of solid-state lighting technologies, announces significant enhancements to its Lighting System Creator design tool, available free of charge to engineers worldwide. The LSC, designed for enabling lighting designers to quickly and efficiently design lighting systems, now has the following feature upgrades:

he LSC will optimize the temperature and current to minimize the LED count and suggest the most cost effective approach to meet target specifications using LEDs, COBs, and even modules and integrated light engines.

In cases where the user wishes to consider one specific type of light-source for the application, the user can now specifically select their preference versus being presented with all possible technical solutions.

The LSC now also includes light sources that do not yet have an available LM-80 report. This now enables users to consider recently released products for design consideration in to their fixtures.

The tool also includes an automatic offset that incorporates the efficiency impact of the integrated driver and/or integrated optic for modules and light engines when applicable.

“These upgrades represent significant enhancements and functionality to our tool,” said Patrick Durand, Worldwide Technical Director, Future Lighting Solutions. “This continues our quest to provide our customers with the most innovative and leading-edge tools available to help them build world-class luminaires efficiently,” said Durand.

Future Electronics Announces Immediate Availability of MDmesh Series from STMicroelectronics

Montreal, Canada – October 25, 2016 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has announced immediate shipping availability of MDmesh Series power transistors and STripFET Series low-voltage MOSFETs from STMicroelectronics.

ST’s innovation in power transistors is exemplified by leading-edge power technologies for both high-voltage and low-voltage applications. Each family combines a full package range, innovative die bonding techniques, and superior electrical performance. Their expansive portfolio includes trench and super-junction MOSFETs ranging from -500 to 1500 V, as well as silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFETs featuring the industry’s highest temperature rating of 200 °C.

ST’s MDmesh™ M5 Series power MOSFETs are optimized for high-power PFC and PWM topologies in hard switching applications such as solar-power converters, power supplies for consumer products, electronic lighting controls and EV/HEV.

The MDmesh M2 series is ideal for use in resonant-type supplies (LLC converters) and has a very low gate charge (Qg) combined with an excellent output capacitance. With a breakdown voltage ranging from 400 V to 650 V, the MDmesh M2 MOSFETs are available in a wide range of package options.

The MDmesh K5 Series features the industry’s best RDS(on) and figure of merit for increased power density and efficiency in applications such as LED lighting, metering, solar inverters, 3-phase auxiliary power supplies and welding.
Also available is the STripFET F7 Series of low-voltage MOSFETs, featuring an enhanced trench-gate structure that lowers device on-state resistance while also reducing internal capacitances and gate charge for faster and more efficient switching.

ST has extended its SiC MOSFET portfolio with the introduction of the 189 mΩ typ (at 150 °C), 1200 V SCT20N120. Just as the 80 mΩ version (SCT30N120), the device is packaged in the proprietary HiP247™ package and features the industry’s highest junction temperature rating of 200 °C.
