Chip powers LED lamps in MR16 halogen bulb systems

This driver is used in LED replacement lamps for MR16 halogen bulb sockets. It’s compatible with common dimmers:

The MAX16840, an LED driver that employs a proprietary architecture to ensure flicker-free, dimmable operation with electronic transformers and cut-angle dimmers. Maxim’s patent-pending approach enables the design of retrofit LED lamps that can replace halogen MR16s without any changes to the existing electrical infrastructure. This removes an important obstacle to commercial viability, allowing end users to enjoy all the benefits of LED lighting with substantially lower deployment costs.

Thanks for the tip rsdio!
