O2Micro to show expanding portfolio of lighting solutions at Lighting Japan 2014



O2Micro International announced its participation in Lighting Japan
2014, January 15 -- 17. Lighting Japan 2014, a composition of three
shows -- the LED/OLED Lighting Technology Expo,
LED/OLED Light Expo, and Design Lighting
Tokyo 2014 -- will be held at the Tokyo Big Sight, Tokyo, Japan.
O2Micro will demonstrate its LED General Lighting products in the
LED/OLED Light Expo section of the show room floor, booth number East

"We are excited about this Expo and opportunity to exhibit our General
Lighting products publically," said Dr. Yung Lin, executive vice
president, O2Micro. "O2Micro will showcase commercially available LED
bulbs that embed O2Micro's LED Driver controllers and patented Free
Dimming(TM) technology to enable advanced dimming functionality using a
standard on/off switch."

O2Micro's Free Dimming technology offers many benefits to LED lighting
manufacturers and consumers. It works with any non-dimming on/off
switch and the billions of sockets that do not have dimmers. By
eliminating dimmer cost and installation, it is a great value and easy
to use. It does not have any flicker or audible hum, making it
appealing compared to problematic TRIAC dimming solutions.

For OEMs, Free Dimming technology is also less expensive and has higher
efficiency than traditional TRIAC dimmable LED drivers. It supports
universal 85V to 265V operation, enabling one SKU to serve the global
marketplace. It supports a wide range of retrofit bulb form factors and
power levels, and has the lowest BOM cost and smallest footprint.

O2Micro offers a rapidly expanding portfolio of LED Driver controllers
for applications ranging from low power candle bulbs to high power
street lights. The company offers solutions that support a wide range
of topologies for both isolated and non-isolated applications. With
non-dimming, traditional TRIAC dimming and O2Micro's patented Free
Dimming controllers, O2Micro has a solution for any general lighting
