Lighting Communications Development Platform

A development platform for the creation of communications-enabled lighting applications from Microchip

Image of Microchip Technology's Lighting Communications Development PlatformThe Lighting Communications Development Platform provides a universal lighting development platform for the creation of communications enabled lighting applications. The platform consists of a main board and various communications interface adapters to support in the development of DALI, DMX512A, as well as future protocols (eg. RF).

To utilize the communications platform, a minimum of two main or two prototyping boards and two adapters are required – connected via appropriate cabling (eg. RJ45 patch cable, DMX512A 5-pin barrel cable, or DALI 2-wire). The communication platform is compatible with commercially available DALI/DMX512A products, and can be integrated into existing lighting networks during development or utilized with multiple communication platforms to simulate large lighting networks.
