I may never get tired of talking about LED and diode polarities. It's so much fun. Not long ago, I wrote about two LEDs from the same manufacturer, marked with opposite polarities. I recently ran into another one, but at least this one tells you on the same datasheet. This image is an actual unmodified clip from the datasheet.
Introducing a new bulb that is highly energy efficient, provides loads of lumens, and is pleasant to behold. The Verde Series LED GU24 direct replacement lamp by American Illumination need not be hidden in today’s lighting designs (unlike the lamp it is replacing - the 13W compact fluorescent).
VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has developed a dimmable LED street light that consumes significantly less energy than current lighting systems, while improving the lighting characteristics. The street lights were tested in Helsinki with user experiences collected.
Touchscreen-based interactivity has rapidly progressed from being a desired feature to an almost mandatory requirement for displays utilized in all manner of equipment. Vending machines, home appliances, vehicle control consoles, and industrial instruments increasingly feature a touchscreen.
Solid-state lighting is continuing its solid growth across a range of industries and applications. ECN recently spoke to Robbie Paul, Lighting Sales Director at Digikey to discuss the solid state lighting market and the latest LED trends. The number of players in the LED market has grown so much over the years it has become crowded and very competitive.
We rely heavily on display technologies to interface with our appliances, personal communications devices, our cars, and industrial equipment. We’re also demanding more from displays such as smaller size, higher resolution, interactivity, and even the ability to bend.
