  • Patent number: 9913331
    Abstract: A lighting circuit comprises a first circuit (1) with an element (31) with a diode function coupled serially to a parallel combination of a capacitor (41) and a serial combination of a first LED (21) and a first switch (11) and comprises a second circuit (2) with a second switch (12). The circuits (1, 2) are parallel circuits. The lighting circuit produces light in response to a supply current from a current source (6). The second switch (12), when conducting, lets the supply current pass and prevents it from flowing through the element (31), and, when non-conducting, blocks the supply current and it flows through the element (31). The first switch (11), when non-conducting, prevents the first LED (21) from producing some of the light, and, when conducting, allows the first LED (21) to produce some of the light. Power for the first LED (21) is delivered via the supply current when flowing through the element (31) or via a capacitor current supplied by the capacitor (41).
