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.

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.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
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.
