Flicker was a familiar problem with early fluorescent lamps. However, increasingly powerful electronic control gear has largely offset these interferences over time, banishing them from current perception. Since LEDs (Light-Emitting Diodes) have become established in all areas of lighting, including general lighting, flicker has reemerged. LED Drivers play a key role in producing light that is as flicker-free as possible...

Energy efficiency is driving consumers to replace standard incandescent lamps with LED-based retrofit lamps. More over energy efficiency LED-based solid-state lighting (SSL) offers many other potential benefits such as extended life time, very good color rending, less infrared radiation, no mercury etc, but the technology comes with new challenges. Lighting designers and engineers must understand the unique properties of LEDs to realize optimal performance. It is better to consider a variety of factors including the application type, required dimming performance and control preferences before selecting LED product.
