Stocks in this article: PFL

CHICAGO, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Newark element14, the leading distributor of electronic components and engineering solutions in the Americas and a business of Premier Farnell (LSE:pfl), announced today it is now stocking Cirrus Logic's new CS161X LED driver ICs that features digital TruDim™ technology, which enables near 100 percent compatibility with a wide array of dimmers manufactured around the world.

LED retrofit bulbs are considered superior to incandescent and compact fluorescent lamps, due to their superior energy efficiency and long life. However, key barriers to wide adoption have included their poor dimmer compatibility, which can cause flickering or flashing light and hinder the inability to turn the light on or off. The CS161X's digital intelligence allows the controller to identify the type of dimmer in use and adapt its dimmer compatibility algorithm. This is not possible with today's analog controllers.

An informative video about the CS161X family, and the complete Cirrus Logic offering available for same-day shipping, can be seen at http://www.newark.com/cirrus-logic.
