Claim of US Patent No. 10,462,865

1. A lighting fixture, comprising:a voltage source circuit;
a first light module comprising a first current source circuit and a first light emitting diode (LED) light source; and
a second light module comprising a second current source circuit and a second LED light source, wherein the voltage source circuit is configured to provide a voltage source output voltage to the first current source circuit and to the second current source circuit, wherein the first current source circuit is configured to provide a first current to the first LED light source, wherein the second current source circuit is configured to provide a second current to the second LED light source, wherein a first light provided by the first LED light source is fully dimmed when the first current has a minimum amplitude corresponding to a lower voltage level of the voltage source output voltage that is higher than zero volts and lower than an upper voltage limit of the voltage source output voltage, and wherein a second light provided by the second LED light source is fully dimmed when the second current has approximately the minimum amplitude.
