Fully Integrated System Solutions

onsemi has introduced two complete system solutions that support the most widely used building automation network protocols- Power over Ethernet (PoE) and KNX. Easing the development of access and control panels, the NCN5140S is a System-in-Package (SiP) certified with the KNX Association and along with this, the company has introduced the new NCL31010 that is a complete solution for ethernet-powered connected lighting.

The NCN5140S integrates all critical and certifiable elements of a KNX device, including a digital KNX transceiver, a 32-bit Arm Cortex-M0+ microcontroller with a pre-certified software stack, and system power DC/DC converters, into a single package. With its high degree of integration, the NCN5140S considerably reduces material costs and allows manufacturers to develop very slim and modern designs.

The NCL31010 comprises all elements needed to design a connected and managed lighting system via Power-over-Ethernet, including capabilities for Visible Light Communication and Indoor Positioning. It incorporates a high-efficiency buck LED driver that supports both high-bandwidth analog and PWM dimming down to zero current. Two auxiliary DC-DC converters are included to power for example the system microcontroller and sensors. Moreover, high accuracy metrology and diagnostics are included to measure input and output current and voltage, LED or system temperature, and DC-DC voltages and currents.
