By building DALI slave capability into end nodes such as smart light bulbs and luminaires, the manufacturer can make them ready for use in large-scale lighting control networks that use the standard DALI protocol.
STMicroelectronics supplies a simple application example with its DALI slave library. This example was designed for use with the STM8SDISCOVERY, an evaluation board containing an STM8S105C6T6 MCU, and the STEVALILMOO1V1, a transceiver module providing a hardware interface for the STM8S-DISCOVERY to a DALI master.
The application example controls the light output of the LED on the STM8S-DISCOVERY board.
