28C3: Driving high power LEDs

Posted on Friday, January 20th, 2012 in components, LEDs, talks by the machinegeek

Here’s a brief video from the recently concluded 28C3 hacker conference hosted by Chaos Communication Congress in Berlin, Germany. Jonathan Foote of covers some ways to drive high power LEDs without burning them up, including the latest technology current source circuits and ICs.

This was one of the “lightning talks” which are are part of the pre-scheduled program, so no CCC documentation page is available.

    Nice presentation, kinda’ like speed-dating. The gem is the page of chips listed at the URL provided in the lecture and in the link above from Larry K – which I provide with verbosity belw: It would be nice if anyone with more experience in this area can add to Mr. Foote’s list.
