The RGB LED lighting shield is compatible with Arduino as well as Infineon’s XMC1100 boot kit. It is easily configurable for various LED light engines and lamps, allowing for fast prototyping and cheap evaluation of LED lighting designs.
The RGB LED lighting shield based on the XMC1302 microcontroller uses a dc-dc buck converter topology, and can drive up to three LED channels with a constant current. The shield’s XMC1302 MCU features an embedded brightness color control unit (BCCU) for flicker-free LED dimming and color control.
The BCCU enables low-cost but high-quality LED lighting solutions, with minimal need for code generation. The RGB LED lighting shield also provides options for the evaluation of smooth, eye-friendly dimming and color mixing for various topologies
