MANHASSET, NY Teridian Semiconductor, Synapse Wireless and California Eastern Laboratories (CEL) are collaborating on intelligent wireless control and energy monitoring of LED light fixtures and solid state lighting products.
The plug-and-play solution will measure the use of energy and provide intelligent control for lighting applications in an 802.15.4-based wireless network.
Teridian's 78M661x chip enables power measurement in a range of applications that include home and building automation networks, appliances, power supplies, HVAC, and communication equipment.
Synapse's SNAP is a mesh network operating system that provides embedded intelligence and wireless communication .
CEL's MeshConnect product line, which includes ICs, modules and development kits, provides a fully integrated transceiver solution for IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee networks.
"Each of the three partners provides an important component for intelligent wireless control and energy management for LED lighting and other solid state lighting applications," said Rich Howell, director of Business Development for CEL, in a statement.
Next week at Lightfair International 2010, the three companies will demonstrate the solution.
According to Bob Steele, director of Optoelectronics at Strategies Unlimited, an industry analyst firm, the global market for LEDs in lighting is predicted to grow at a 44 percent CAGR over the next five years.
