STMicroelectronics Raises Reliability and Efficiency for Ultra-Compact LED Lamps

GENEVA Feb. 22, 2011

LED lighting, including retrofit bulbs, is expected to account for 80% of the lighting market by 2020 or sooner. Primary-Side Regulation (PSR) cuts bill-of-materials costs for retrofit bulbs, thereby reducing the payback time, while also simplifying design and reducing the space occupied by LED control circuitry.

The new HVLED805 integrates an 800V avalanche-rugged MOSFET, achieved using ST's high-voltage integration process, which is higher than in competing devices and hence offers greater reliability. The high-voltage on-chip startup circuitry allows the device to start reliably when the AC line voltage is applied to the lamp.

Further technical information:

Primary-side regulation maintains the constant LED current that is needed to ensure consistent light output, without requiring the current-sensing components and opto-coupler used in conventional secondary-side regulation. The elimination of these components decreases the cost and size of the LED driving circuitry and saves current-sensing losses, improving overall efficiency.

Using PSR, the HVLED805 guarantees LED current regulation to within 5% accuracy. Reliability is also enhanced, due to the elimination of the opto-coupler in the secondary side, whose degradation can significantly decrease the mean-time-between-failure of the lamp.

The HVLED805 PSR controller integrates high-voltage startup for efficient power-on, and the robust 800V power MOSFET allows a reduction of the snubber network. The highly efficient quasi-resonant (QR) operating mode further boosts energy savings for LED lighting and dramatically reduces the EMI filtering required, saving space and costs.

Solar Rainbow to Install 1.3 Megawatt 400,000 sq. ft. Solar System on JORDACHE Rooftop in New Jersey

NEW YORK Feb. 22, 2011 Kirk Roller UNI-SOLAR New Jersey

South Plainfield, New Jersey

Mr. Bawabeh stated, "JORDACHE'S decision to adopt solar energy in such a large way is a powerful leadership move. We are delighted to be able to work with them as they take a lead in going green on a corporate level."  

Eddie Ben Aderet

The energy generated from the installation on the JORDACHE rooftop will create about 1,430  megawatt hours (MWH) per year.  This is enough energy to power about 250 American homes.  The emission savings is equivalent to taking 80 cars off the road every year, and it will reduce CO2 emissions annually by 1,100 tons.

"The most difficult obstacle to selling a solar system is educating the customer," stated Mr. Bawabeh.  "Once they realize that they can protect the environment while getting a great return on investment, they begin to move forward.  Companies can take advantage of the 100% bonus depreciation of the system cost in the first year, as well as, a 30% Federal Cash Grant.  Additionally, there is also an income stream of SRECS and Electricity savings."

MuniMarket.com Provides Free Investor-to-Investor Exchange Platform for Municipal Bond Sellers, Buyers

SAN FRANCISCO Feb. 22, 2011 the United States

Kevin Olson

With so many investors looking to sell their municipal bonds under extraordinarily difficult market conditions, the bid-side of the equation is particularly bad for sellers.  "One of the fundamental problems with the muni markets is that the bid-side is captive and closed," Olson said.  "Your bonds are held at a dealer securities account.  If you want or need to sell, you get one bid from your broker.  That bid may be your broker's bid, or your broker's trading desk could have gone out and gotten another bid and kept a nice spread for itself.  There may be a few layers of bids and spreads before a final buyer is found.  The result is neither seller nor buyer gets the best prices.  Unfortunately this is common practice."

To use MuniMarket.com, investors simply post the municipal bonds they want to sell and their contact information on the form provided by the site.  At the end of the bidding period, the investor (or his broker, where bonds are held in account) and the winning bidder's broker will write the trade tickets.

Olson has also launched a public finance watchdog and investor advocacy Web site, MuniAdvocate.com, with the goal of improving municipal public finance and helping municipal market investors.

CNPS Unleashed to Boost Online Sales and Combat ‘Friendly Fraud’ Chargebacks

NEW YORK Feb. 22, 2011

$139 billion dollars

"Friendly fraud" occurs when a consumer purchases an item, receives it, and without valid reason refuses acceptance of the charge for the transaction by initiating a chargeback with their bank/card issuer. Friendly fraud is basically online shoplifting. When a chargeback is initiated, under current consumer protection regulations, the burden of proof is placed on the merchant to produce irrefutable legal evidence of proof of purchase. More often than not, the final decision favors the friendly fraudster.

Greg Wooten

SignatureLink CNPS technology is the missing link for the card-not-present (CNP) eCommerce industry to validate and certify every purchase transaction as a legally binding agreement. The virtual signature pad, once deployed, will grant all online payment transactions equal access to the same legal protection and defense afforded to card-present transactions with a signature. The patent-pending process in which SignatureLink records an electronic signature is HIPPA compliant and attorney tested to be 100% legal and compliant with both U.S. Federal UETA of 1999 and ESIGN Act of 2000.

Utilizing human factors engineering, USDT and SignatureLink designed the online signature pad to mirror the look and feel of a typical card-present signature pad consumers are already familiar with, eliminating confusion and creating easy adoption. The purchaser simply signs the signature pad with a stylus or mouse during the checkout process. Once executed, the signature, transaction details and terms and conditions are captured and the detailed record is then archived in SignatureLink's PCI &a
