Mouser stocking Seoul Semi’s Acrich2 LED engines

April 10, 2012
Date Announced: 10 Apr 2012 Mouser Electronics, Inc., regarded as a top design engineering resource and global distributor for semiconductors and electronic components, today announced that it is stocking Seoul Semiconductor’s Acrich2 LED engines. The Acrich2 LED module is intended to be used in AC powered lighting applications to replace traditional lighting with an LED-based technology solution. Potential applications include lamps and bulbs, down lights, ceiling lights, and industrial lights.The Acrich family offers an integrating circuit that controls current flow, power dissipation, and power factor correction to the proper specification. The Acrich family (the first to offer an LED module powered by AC), allows designers to directly drive from an AC source, without AC-DC power conversions, to provide convenience and simplicity.The Acrich2 delivers a significant boost in technical performance over the first generation Acrich LED engine. The Acrich2 delivers an increase in Power Efficiency and Power Factor Correction (PFC), while simultaneously reducing total harmonic distortion (THD). The Acrich2 incorporates a TRIAC phase-modulating dimmer allowing it be installed in applications previously designed for incandescent lamps. It is available in four distinct power and lumen output ranges (4W, 8W, 12W, 16W). The family will work with all common global AC-voltage ranges. Standard nominal correlated color temperature (CCT) is 3000K (Warm White) with a color rendering index (CRI) of greater than 80.
