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).

Light sensing technology, in the form of photodiodes and phototransistors, was invented around the 1950s. Since the inception of the first optosensors, the devices have gradually found their place in commercial and industrial applications, but their adoption was limited due to the size, cost and overall performance.
Mouser Electronics announced it is stocking the new LUXEON M LEDs from Philips Lumileds, delivering high flux density and high efficacy with Freedom From Binning. Philips Lumileds LUXEON M is an illumination grade LED designed to enable indoor, outdoor, and industrial applications and is optimized either for high efficiency or low cost, where exceptional flux density and uniformity are critical.
