Preview Kinetic Technologies' World's Smallest 36-Channel RGB LED Driver at CES 2019
Silicon Valley-based Kinetic Technologies will demonstrate its world's
smallest 36-channel RGB LED Driver at the Consumer Electronics Show
(CES (News - Alert)) 2019 in Las Vegas.
Colored LED lighting has become ubiquitous in our lives ranging from RGB
indicators on AI speakers to arrays of LEDs covering entire
buildings. Kinetic Technologies has developed an innovative 36-channel
RGB LED driver, the KTD2061, that dramatically reduces the design
complexity and lowers the solution cost.
Traditional RGB drivers have one output pin per channel. This often
requires large PCB routing spaces as well as expensive high density
interconnect circuit boards. The KTD2061 uses a multiplexing technique
known as Charlieplexing to control 36 output channels using only 12
pins, thus significantly reducing PCB routing and enabling the use of
inexpensive two-layer PCBs. The patented BrightExtendTM
technology enables battery operation by decreasing dropout when the
input voltage is too low for the forward voltage of the LEDs. The
CoolExtendTM feature prevents excessive heat when the input
voltage, current settings, or ambient temperature exceeds programmable
In addition, the KTD2061 is the first in the industry to integrate a
hardware fade engine per channel. This exponentially reduces the amount
of software commands traditionally required to implement a lighting
pattern. "The KTD2061 will free up a system's MCU and the I2C
bus, potentially even allowing customers to choose a lower-cost
processor," said David Nam, Vice President of Kinetic Technologies.
