EE Times’ LED issue

EE Times’  LED issue

The latest (free) electronic edition of EE Times is online and it’s devoted to the LED. Entitled “LEDs: Let There Be Lighting,” the issue explores mainly the business side of LEDs and the impact that this lighting and display technology will have on the marketplace of the near-future, and in various commercial and domestic applications. There’s an interesting article about white LED lamps that use UV- or purple-emitting LED chips (in the 300-400nm wavelengths) and RGB fluorescents to render much truer colors in lighting situations where that’s important.

Everyone seems to be realizing the incredibly lucrative future of the LED and LED-based lights and displays and is clamoring to get in on the action. It’ll be interesting to see how this all plays out in terms of accelerating technical innovations and driving economies of scale.
