Researchers have developed a fabric that converts kinetic energy into electric power. The greater the load applied to the textile and the wetter it becomes the more electricity it generates.
A team led by engineers at the University of California San Diego has used data mining and computational tools to discover a new phosphor material for white LEDs that is inexpensive and easy to make.
Introducing the XLamp® XD16 LED, the industry’s first Extreme Density LED – proving the first to surpass the 280lm/mm2 Lumen Density Mark.
Texas Instruments have introduced the first 3-channel high-side linear automotive light-emitting diode (LED) controller without internal MOSFETs – giving designers greater flexibility for their lighting designs.
Professor Shuji Nakamura has received one of the IET's most significant awards, the Mountbatten Medal, for his pioneering work to develop blue LEDs and lasers.
Casambi have announced the introduction of a new Class 2 embedded Bluetooth 4.0 module that is designed for LED lighting control applications, light fixtures and LED bulbs.
Mouser Electronics is now stocking the Grove Zero kit, which contains a set of colour-coded, magnetic electronic modules that enables teachers and students to learn about programming, electronics, design and logic.
The LT3922, from Linear Technology Corporation, now part of Analog Devices, is a monolithic, synchronous, step-up DC/DC converter with internal 40V, 2A power switches and an internal PWM generator.
The E100 Gateway – a very compact, zigbee-based wireless Gateway provides both local and IoT-based control for a wide range of lighting devices, accessories, fixtures, controllers and switches.
This system from A.T.E Solutions uses camera software to learn the position of all LEDs, thereby reducing the time to introduce a new product into the test phase of production.
Lighting specialist Glamox has helped glamorise two Color Line cruise ships, Color Fantasy and Color Magic, by supplying environmentally-friendly AL45 LED strip lighting, installed in the upper deck railings.
Product Innovation Award-winning Orion LED modules from Plessey deliver over 3,000 lumens from a unit just 5.6mm thick – with no secondary optics needed.
Low efficiency halogen bulbs are expected to be banned from September 2018, and Electrical Direct are urging electrical contractors to increase awareness of the fact.
Lutron Electronics have announced the launch of integration with Google Home, allowing homeowners to easily control their lighting – both at and away from home.
The WR-LECO connector family from Würth Elektronik eiSos is optimised for use with LEDs: the connectors are white and flat, to have as little impact as possible on the luminous efficacy of the LEDs.
The Bekla Torch is the world’s smallest multi-timer LED light that provides flexibility in lighting dark spaces.
Engineers have developed a new camera design that replaces lenses with an ultra-thin optical phased array (OPA).
Cree announces an LED breakthrough with the NX technology platform that will power the next generation of Cree’s lighting-class LEDs.
GreenPeak Technologies launches its wireless LED lighting solution, a low-cost ambient lighting application based on the GP651 communication chip.
