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.
There is currently much discussion around the term "platform," which may be preceded by the adjectives "mobile," "wearable," "medical," "healthcare," etc. However, regardless of the platform being discussed, they usually have one key aspect in common: They tend to be wireless. So, why is this one aspect so fairly universal? The answer is convenience.
Everyone has a MEMS story. For most of us it’s probably the airbag that saved our lives or the life of a loved one. Perhaps it’s the tire pressure sensor that alerted us about deflation before we were stranded alone on a dark muddy road.
Bioimimicry is not merely a helpful design tool -- it also encourages designers to think not only about how to solve design problems by imitating nature, but how to make the products, materials, and systems they design more ecologically sound and nature-friendly.
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.
