Along with superior efficiency – approximately 10% higher than most standard CFL lamps – and small form factor, GreenChip's 'smart' functionality ensures your CFL bulbs offer several benefits over alternative technologies.
NXP offers robust, integrated GreenChip IC solutions that deliver the high quality, high reliability CFLs consumers demand.
Some GreenChip CFL ICs feature a unique 'boost' system which accelerates lamp warm-up, so you get a fully bright light in less time.
Energy-saving lamps using GreenChip technology can deliver deep dimming – exceeding the SuperCFL dimming requirement to offer users dimming like that for incandescent lamps. And they work with most existing dimmer solutions so you can create any mood you like, straight out of the box.
GreenChip integrates the functionality of many components – so there are fewer parts to go wrong – and is resilient to voltage variations. As a result, bulbs can reach well above standard CFL expectations with over 15,000 hours of use and up to 100,000 on/off switching cycles.
GreenChip-based energy-saving lamps look much like the familiar incandescent bulbs and have a significantly reduced lamp base size. So, unlike conventional CFLs, you can use them in any lighting fixture.
