The LED-based lighting market is poised for significant growth. And there's plenty of motivation for engineers to become part of the market.
This week alone, engineers have three major events focused on LEDs and Lighting: the EE Times LEDs and Lighting Virtual Conference, the LEDs2009 Conference in San Diego and the LightShow/West in Los Angeles.
Maury Wright, who is conference co-chair for the EE Times LEDs and Lighting Virtual Conference, believes that what is motivating engineers is that they seek more information on the LED market potential, and the fact that LEDs are really quite different devices once you get past the basic indicator usage.
The circuits driving LEDs certainly require power management expertise.
The EE Times LEDs and Lighting Virtual Conference materials will be archived and available after the Oct. 21 event.
Check it out. It might just be the "start of something big" in your career.
