Choosing the right circuit protection for LEDs

Choosing the right circuit protection for LEDs
Approximately 25% of global energy consumption goes to lighting applications, so making lighting more efficient could have a dramatic impact on overall energy usage or make more power available for other uses. Legislation designed to discourage the use of incandescent lamps has been a significant factor in the growth in demand for LED lighting equipment. At the same time, both consumers and industrial users are increasingly interested in energy efficient lighting options, further stimulating the demand for LED lighting.

Chiral-induced spinning for more efficient OLED devices

Chiral-induced spinning for more efficient OLED devices
One of the main barriers to a wider adoption of OLED technology resides in its lack of efficiency compared to fluorescent lamps or Light-emitting diodes (LED). The SOLED project hoped to solve this problem using chiral organic semiconductor structures. The difference is undisputable: when put side by side with an LED display, its OLED counterpart will stand out thanks to its sharper images, better contrast and crisp colours.

Test-system portfolio for LED-populated circuit board inspection

Test-system portfolio for LED-populated circuit board inspection
With the HV tester for the high-voltage testing of LED assemblies, the AOI- and function-test specialist from Bremen is continuing to expand its portfolio for inspecting LED-populated circuit boards. The HV tester will be available in two sizes as the standard system by year's end. High-voltage testing is used to inspect the insulation and voltage stability of assemblies. Here, voltages that normally affect the specimen only in cases involving disruptions, faults, or exceptional external influences are applied to it.
