Welcome to LIGHTimes!

The opportunities presented by the increasing rapid adoption of high brightness LEDs, in all their forms and applications, represents nothing short of a "digital revolution" for a previously "analog" world. LEDs are having a substantial disruptive effect on a number of established technologies, and where there is disruption, there is an intense need for information.

LIGHTimes Online is here to serve the information needs of the LED industry supply chain, as well as integrators and non-architectural application solution providers with technology, product and market news updates for these rapidly evolving devices. Our readership also includes LED packagers, technology enablers and service companies seeking the answers to how best to meet their customers' needs.

For architectural lighting and applications news of interest specifically to lighting designers, specifiers, and architectural lighting decision makers, along with luminaire designers, lighting system integrators and lighting subsystem developers, please visit our sister publication, Solid State Lighting Design.

Supposed to be a picture here... Osram Opto Semiconductors Launches Displix Oval for Outdoor LED Displays
... Osram Opto Semiconductors has introduced a surface-mountable, oval-shaped LED for outdoor displays called Displix Oval. It measures just 2.1 x 2.7 x 1.5 mm. The company contends that this small footprint allows almost twice as many LEDs to be mounted on a board than with ordinary radial diodes, doubling both the pixel density and the display resolution. According to Osram Opto the higher pixel density and resolution results in extremely vivid images with high color homogeneity. The company points out that the high pixel density allows lower brightness for individual pixels. Therefore, individual LEDs can operate on lower current....

LEDs Taking Over the World... Still Plenty of LED/Lighting Breakthroughs Left
... For many in the LED industry who have watched, and lived, the steady march of technology for the last decade, it's pretty easy to get jaded about the technology. Not in a bad way, but just a bored kind of one. "Let me guess," they say, "next year we'll be able to pack 15% more lumens in the same space, at 10% better efficacy and 9% lower cost per lumen." The numbers vary from year to year, and person...  Read the rest...(or permalink here)
