L-Dot Pico: world’s smallest RGBW LED driver/controller

Feb. 27, 2009
Date Announced: 27 Feb 2009 The L-Dot Pico by eldoLED packs a big punch from a small package - 15 watts of RGBW colour change from a driver/controller the size of a quarter, ideal for integration into the smallest of lighting fixtures! - DMX and temperature protection as standard.Single LED current source, multiple LED colour groupseldoLED technology drives up to 4 LED (colour) groups from a single, high-precision LED current source, which not only gives the L-Dot Pico a power efficiency of up to 95% but has also resulted in a break-through form factor. Small form factor: in-fixture installationThe remarkably small size of the L-Dot Pico makes it ideally suited for in-fixture installation, leading to less cabling, increased design freedom and improved system cost for luminaire manufacturers.High control resolutionThe L-Dot pico supports a 15-bit control resolution per output channel for accurate dimming and fine colour mixing.Robust thermal management The L-Dot Pico’s high efficiency leads to a lower heat generation, which means a much smaller heat sink suffices to dissipate its heat. The Pico can even share the heat sink of the LED engine, lowering total system costs. Furthermore, it features an interface for the connection of an NTC, enabling various ways of thermal control, including LED throttling (a graceful decrease of light output until acceptable temperature values have been reached). ShowMasterShowMaster, supported on all eldoLED driver/controllers, allows you to create, manage and upload show sequences for use in standalone mode. ShowMaster is part of the freely available TOOLbox software.
