Fremont Micro Devices Announces T8 Tube LED Driver Module

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Fremont, CA (PRWEB) January 31, 2013 Fremont Micro Devices USA Inc. a major manufacture and designer of Serial EEPROM and energy efficient power management integrated circuit products announced the FT825-12S480 controller module, a high efficiency, isolated, high power factor, LED driver module for replacement T8 tube designs. The double sided PCB was designed to be assembled in limited T8 tube space and is less than 10mm high by17mm wide and is only 216mm long.

“The major advantage of a module solution over a discrete solution is faster time to market and lower total cost of ownership. The LED driver module is a plug-and-play solution that requires no external components. The FT825-12S480 module design is very cost effective because of minimal component count. Our objective was to keep the LED driver ultra thin and highly energy efficient. All voltage range, operating temperature and accuracy parameters were specified and met.” said Jim Panfil, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Fremont Micro Devices USA Inc. “When the total cost of development, cost of testing and cost of regulatory approvals is taken into consideration, an LED module is a more cost effective solution than discrete alternatives to meet quick time to market needs.“ He added.

The FT825-12S480 LED controller module is based on the recently announced FT825 LED driver Integrated Circuit. The module delivers a power factor greater than 0.93 and low THD of 20% meeting EN61000-3-2 harmonics limits. The design is EMI compliant exceeding the EN55015 and FCC Part 18 Class B standard. The driver module deliver 20W (90V – 264Vac) at an efficiency as high as 88 percent with output current of 0.48A for LED strings.

The significant advantage of the isolated, PSR, flyback topology is its wide output voltage. This is an important parameter. The amount of output voltage required is determined by how many LED’s a design will string together in series.

FT825-12S480 LED Light Tube Module list price is $5.00 for volume orders of 10ku.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
