LEDs fight for the Edison socket

Alix Paultre, Editorial Director, PSD

Unfortunately technology development is guided (and often blocked) by the infrastructure issues of the previous technology(s). Nowhere is this more apparent than in solid state lighting, especially that driven by LEDs. There is an old story in technology development that asks about the dimensions

LEDs: from emerging technology to a commodity at the speed of light.

Kevin Parmenter, Contributing Editor

In my career I have seen few things go from emerging to a sea change as fast as the LED lighting market. LED lighting has gone from emerging technology to mainstream commodity very rapidly, and there are yet few standards. Every application usually needs something different, as every customer wants something
