Microchip Lighting Communications
Development Platforms

Microchip Lighting Communications Development Platforms are full-featured, universal lighting development platforms that provides all of the components required to create a DMX512A or DALI lighting network, offering users a complete “out-of-the-box” experience.  This enables lighting engineers to design intelligent lighting and control systems with a large array of Microchip’s 8, 16 and 32-bit PIC® microcontrollers; and analog, wireless, and human-interface solutions. The Starter Kit includes two main boards, two communications-interface adapters (DALI or DMX512A), one prototype board and the required cables/power supplies. Designers new to lighting communications can quickly and easily start creating connected lighting applications via a simple board-to-board network. These platforms utilizes a single, low-cost 8-bit PIC MCU for the user interface, LED control and communications.  Software development is based on the free Microchip DALI and DMX512A libraries, which are written in C and can be ported to any PIC microcontroller.  Additionally, the kit features the Cree® XLamp® MC-E Color LED, enabling high-lumen output in a small form factor, along with a LEDnLIGHT collimator LLC19N optic and holder by Gaggione for high-quality color mixing and tight beam control. Industry-standard lighting communication connectors and isolation devices are also included.
