EDN's LED Webinar Series - Part 1: Understanding LEDs

Original Air Date: Mar 21, 2013 | Duration: 60 minutes Webinar
0 7
More Info Less Info

Overview:
LED adoption continues to accelerate, with the market almost doubling in size to $12 billion in the last five years alone, growing to $16 B by 2016. While the figures are exciting, they don't tell the full story in that there remains much that has yet to be learned and understood about the benefits of LEDs and how to select, drive, and apply them for maximum return. It is with this in mind that EDN is putting together a series of four editorial webinars intended to help electronic system and lighting designers understand the nuances of LEDs, from the technology itself to LED choices and on to their proper application and usage.

In part one, attendees will get an overview of what makes LEDs different, why they're advantageous, what engineers and lighting designers need to know about how LEDs can change their lighting options, what LEDs can provide and what factors to consider when using them.

We use LED's as flashes in our robotic equipment and as a back light for cameras. It would be interesting to know about changing not only radiation intensity, but changing of its light-spectrum.

I am interested to know, if a chain of series connected LED's is used for lighting, how frequently might one go OPEN circuit in the field during the very long potential life they are predicted to have. A lot has been said about the need for bypass devices, but at least one LED maker has told me the incidence is completely 'ignorable'. Does anyone have any experience of this?

It does happen. The problem is not the life of the LED but it's life in application. Thermal or mechanical stressed do cause failures.

Hey all, Part 1 went really well and we got to most of your questions: Thanks for submitting and for joining in during the event. We're lining up Part 2 now, so let us know what you'd like to see addressed as we get more specific on items such as thermal management, optics, lighting design etc..
