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.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
