The LED using, in lighting applications, is becoming more and more attractive and the possibility of using the powerline directly, as a source of power supply, is becoming more and more interesting. Moreover, if the circuital solution allows a compact implementation that can be placed in the same volume of a standard lamp screw, it becomes more interesting.

]The LED using, in lighting applications, is becoming more and more attractive and thepossibility of using the powerline directly, as a source of power supply, is becoming more andmore interesting. Moreover, if the circuital solution allows a compact implementation that canbe placed in the same volume of a standard lamp screw, it becomes more interesting.Switching obviouslyThe solution is a switching converter, with buck topology, that is able to work with high inputvoltages (compared to the one required for LEDs driving ). Among lots of specific solutionsproposed by the market for LED driving, the one proposed by Micronix (a IXYS company),with the MXHV9910 device, seems to be able to answer to the mentioned requirements ( itsblock diagram is shown on Fig.1).Fig. 1 • Block diagram of the PWM controller for MXHV9910 LED driving ( by Micronix ).Peculiar feature of this controller is the internal voltage regulator that can operate directlyfrom the powerline high voltage without any resistive dividers or external capacitives in orderto reduce the power supply voltage. The last ones, apart from occupying space, dissipateenergy decreasing the power supply operative efficiency.The chip works with input voltages that can change from 8 to 450 Volt and it can beconfigured as buck regulator, boost, or buck-boost operation even if the buck topology is the
