Kinetic Technologies provides power management LED lighting control, an Ethernet port, plus EMI/ESD and surge protection solutions for Networking switching equipment.


RGB LED Drivers

Telecom and network switching equipment often use LED indicator lamps. Indicator lamps show power on/off or function status. Implementing indicator lamp LED control circuits to interface LED control switching to microcontroller logic is a tedious design process and requires multiple discrete components.

  • RGB LED drivers allow simplified programmable control of LED color and brightness

Product Highlights:

  • 3-channel RGB LED drivers permit custom color control
  • 4-channel RGBW devices allow for driving a white LED in addition to the RGB LED
  • Multiple programming options include I2C or ExpressWire to ease integration with a wide variety of processors and operating systems
  • Wide range of ramp up/down timing for slow fade in/out effects and complex repeating patterns
  • Ultra-small package footprint

EMI/ESD Suppression

Kinetic Technologies’ EMI/ESD Suppression solution is the industry’s first of a kind, integrating ESD and Common Mode EMI suppression IC to improve EMC performance in Ethernet applications. It is built around Kinetic Technologies’ patented and proprietary Active EMC suppression technology to enable a “Design for Compliance” approach to system design right from the start. This product helps eliminate EMC compliance challenges by providing consistent EMC performance and improvements utilizing silicon-based technology as opposed to passive technologies. EMI/ESD suppression by Kinetic Technologies enables system designers to comply with:

  • CISPR22 and FCC Part 15, Class B requirements for Radiated and Conducted Emissions.
  • IEC 61000-4-3/6 requirements for Radiated and Conducted Immunity, Level 3 or higher.
  • IEC 61000-4-2 ESD (Air Discharge) of ±25kV.
  • IEC 61000-4-2 ESD (Contact Discharge) of ±12kV.
  • Cable Discharge Event (CDE) of ±12kV.
