ELECTRONICS: Cree Inc.’s EasyWhiteTM bins are an LED innovation that both simplifies LED system design and improves LED-to-LED color consistency. EasyWhite bins are offered in 3500K, 3000K and 2700K color temperatures and are 75 percent smaller than the ANSI C78.377 standard color regions.
Prior to this innovation, customers had to manually mix multiple LED bins to achieve consistent color points. For many LED lighting applications, such as MR-16 light bulbs, color-mixing multiple LEDs was complex and undesirable.
Cree’s multichip XLamp® MC-E LEDs are the first LEDs available in EasyWhite bins. The XLamp MC-E EasyWhite LED, at 3000 K CCT, can produce up to 560 lumens when driven at 700 mA. This single LED is an ideal replacement for 20 to 35-W halogen light bulbs in indoor lighting applications such as accent, track and pendant lighting. XLamp MC-E EasyWhite LEDs are available in sample quantities now and in production quantities with standard lead times.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
Neil Fromer is the executive director of the Resnick Institute, a program for energy and sustainability at the California Institute of Technology, working to develop new ideas and research technologies related to providing a sustainable future. He spoke to us about the severity of the current drought in California and how solar energy can help prevent such situations in the future.
