The market size for high brightness (HB) LEDs is expected to reach $12 billion in 2012 and grow to $20.2 billion by 2015 with a 30.6% CAGR ramp (source: Strategies Unlimited). One of the key application
The need to reduce active-mode power consumption is somewhat obvious. What has not been so obvious is the need to minimize power drain in standby and no-load when products are essentially doing nothing.
The usage of LEDs in automotive applications continues to grow due to their longer service life and lower power consumption. Simultaneously, the diversity and size of integrated state-of-the-art instrument
Going from lanterns to LEDs, in a nutshell, describes the course of development in automotive lighting since cars first came on the scene 100 years ago. What originally served only a functional purpose
This article is the fourth of a series in which Dr. Ridley shows the steps involved in designing and building an offline flyback converter. The power transformer is added to the circuit, and the current sensing and snubbers are designed to operate at full power without excessive stress on the components.
Power Transformer Testi
Technological advances in picosecond and sub-picosecond lasers are opening the possibility of machining materials previously thought to be too hard or too brittle for processing by the current generation
The adoption of LED lighting is shaping up to be one of the most radical changes to the lighting market for more than 100 years. The nature of LED products means that there is a fast growing opportunity
