Piccolo Microcontrollers for Digital LED Lighting Control

LEDs promise to bring more efficiency, lower cost, and more features. Digital LED control will help achieve these goals by adding more intelligence to the system. With one Piccolo microcontroller, advanced features such as power line communication, precise dimming, color mixing, and fault detection can be implemented in an LED lighting system. This session will cover the basics of LED lighting, explain how digital control can be implemented, and look at the development tools TI offers to kick start LED designs.
