LEDs provide endless possibilities, but commensurate with that are the design challenges. Join LED expert and entrepreneur Carol Lenk and Design News Content Director Alex Wolfe as they discuss practical applications, including: How do you get started in LED design? How do you pick an LED? What are some of the design "gotchas"? And Why are LEDs poised to take over as the default light source?
Speaker(s): Carol Lenk
Carol Lenk is an MIT-educated entrepreneur who was a founder of the venture-backed LED developer, Superbulbs, and is currently associated with Reliabulb. She is co-author of the book, Practical Lighting Design with LEDS
. She has a BS in Electrical Engineering from MIT and a Masters in Math and Science Education. One of the early pioneers in applying LEDs to general lighting, Lenk has five years of experience in combining theoretical concepts with practical engineering in fields as diverse as optics, thermal modeling, material science, electronics, and mechanical design. She has more than a dozen US and worldwide patents-pending related to LED lighting.

A team from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) has developed a breakthrough new multi-material 3D printer.
The trend to automation development software emphasizing configurable objects, versus structured programming, takes a step forward.
Everyone working in MEMS is chasing the ever-elusive golden wafer. But there is a moral to this story, and help is on the way.
Despite pervasive emphasis on “faster, sooner, better,” companies that have multiple design cycles a year only update their approved vendor lists on an annual basis. Maybe it's time to rethink this.
Taking energy from renewable sources, recycling existing energy, and using components that don’t need much energy at all are becoming critical industrial and consumer design criteria.
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.
