ELECTRONICS: Cree Inc. announces the commercial availability of new, high-efficiency white XLamp® XP-E LEDs. These “outdoor white” LEDs provide the same flux and efficacy levels as Cree’s XLamp cool white LEDs with a neutral color that more closely matches existing high-intensity discharge (HID) installations (4000 K - 5300 K CCT).Available in sample quantities now, and in production quantities with standard lead times, the outdoor white XLamp XP-E LEDs deliver up to 122 lumens at 350 mA, at 4500 K.
Cree’s IES LM-80 lumen maintenance test data for the XLamp XP-E LED has been accepted by ENERGY STAR®. Cree’s lighting-class XLamp XP LEDs are also UL-recognized, conforming to ANSI/UL 8750, Safety Standard for Light Emitting Diode (LED) Equipment for Use in Lighting Products.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
