PSR LED Lighting Driver IC

Cypress Primary Side Regulation (PSR) LED Lighting Driver ICs are cost-effective and highly integrated solutions for consumer LED lighting from retrofit lamps to communication-controlled lamps.

Using the information of the primary peak current and the transformer-energy-zero time, it is able to deliver a well regulated current to the secondary side without using an opto-coupler in an isolated flyback topology.

Cypress has a broad portfolio of clock generators with frequency support of 700 MHz and RMS phase jitter of less than 0.7 ps. They support a host of value-added features such as VCXO, Spread Spectrum and Output Phase Alignment, along with supporting reference clocks for popular interface standards such as PCIe 1.0/2.0/3.0, 10 GbE, SATA 1.0/2.0 and USB 1.0/2.0/3.0. We have commercial, industrial and automotive-grade products.

Clock generators can be broadly classified into two categories: EMI Reduction (Spread-Spectrum capability), and Non-EMI Reduction.
