The advantage of using of an AC drive type is that it minimizes neighboring circuits. The introduction of our advanced LED lighting driver is a result of MagnaChip's extensive high voltage process technical expertise. With PF higher than 0.95 and THD below 27%, energy savings is maximized in the entire lighting system and meets the high efficiency requirements demanded for consumer LED products.

The 4 watt LED product has a brightness equivalent to 30 watt incandescent light bulbs while the 8 watt LED product is equivalent to 60 watts. The usual heat generation problems found in LED lighting has been resolved through the use of an LGA package exhibiting excellent heat dissipation characteristics.

The LED lighting driver also has an embedded bridge diode to manage AC voltage and current and is available in both 110 and 220 voltages. MagnaChip plans to expand its product offering of AC direct drive types by releasing AC-DC and DC-AC conversion type LED lighting drivers.

"MagnaChip's LED lighting driver products will help the customer achieve high-efficiency and high-brightness with low heat generation," said HK Kim, EVP and General Manager of MagnaChip's Display Solutions Division and Power Solutions Division. "This new approach to LED driver design will enable customers to maximize energy savings in their entire LED lighting system, thereby reducing their direct lighting costs."
