Sept. 1, 2011
Date Announced: 01 Sep 2011 Taiwan Hsinchu - Hongling Mansion in Futian District is in the most bustling financial district of Shenzhen, China, where a number of landmark buildings located, including the highest building in the city, KK100, Shenzhen Theater, Diwang Mansion, Shenzhen Bookstore and Shenzhen Stock Exchange. Recently, a LED display with an area of more than 200 m² has been installed on the exterior wall of the three-story Hongling Mansion. The HD quality and high power efficiency of the LED display meets the demand of new generation IT products. ”Power efficiency has become a major appeal for IT products duo to the surging power rate in China resulting from supply shortage and the global trend of reducing CO2 emission.” said Tony Jiao, Vice President of Sales at Yaham Optoelectronic. The LED display adopts the LED driver MBI5035 by Macroblock Inc. It is the first low power 16-bit LED display driver by Microblock that realizes the green energy concept. MBI5035 features a low knee voltage of merely 0.2V, which is able to effectively lower power consumption and carbon emission of the LED display by 35% to enhance system stability and extend the LED lifetime. It also uses fewer power supplies and fans for LED display manufacturers. “The low power driver MBI5035 launched by Macroblock benefits LED display advertisers to reduce electricity fee and enhance their green competitiveness!” said Robert Chen, General Manager of Macroblock. MBI5035 adopts PrecisionDrive™ technology to enhance color accuracy and current uniformity. The design of staggered delay of output between channels can avoid inrush current and reduces EMI interference. The packaging is compatible with traditional MBI5024, therefore only an optimized power supply design is required to upgrade to MBI5035 for power-saving LED display. Founded in 1999 in Taiwan, Microblock Inc. positions itself as a mixed-signal design house with special focus on the power management and opto-electronic applications.
