In a switching power supply--a synchronous buck converter, for example--parasitic inductance can slow down the turn-on and turn-off time of the power FET and increase switching losses.
LED turn-off time can be much faster since parasitic capacitance is much lower at zero bias voltage and carrier sweep out time can be very short [3].
Its automatic power on/off feature allows user to schedule turn-off time in advance.
According to the working principle of hysteresis comparator, the turn-off time can be calculated as following
