Went to the nevalo.com site and it was pretty easy to configure a lighting system - just like this article says. Was able to get a bill of materials readily as well. Pretty handy tool and great lighting solution concept.

Very good points Dave and it will be interesting as lighting transitions in the future. Feel free to visit the TE's NEVALO SSL system microsite at www.nevalo.com

With the ban of the sales of normal light bulb in Europe and other parts of the world, lighting business will be open to high tech players. Whoever will innovate faster will be winner.

It is good to see LED's finally starting to make a significant move into the general lighting arena. They have proven their value in backlighting and in flashlights and moving into general lighting as the next step makes a great deal of sense. Already, we have seen some products on the market but not as many as we might hope for. Now, if we can just make some significant reductions to the price.

I have recently being doing a lot of reading on LED lighting technology, and I would say that if Nevalo delivers on its promise of "taking the technical complexity out of the equation", then Tyco's lighting business will be off to an auspicious start. One key point about temperature control is that the temperature of the LED should not be allowed to be unduly influenced by the power management and driver electronics temperature. Getting the mechanical, thermal, and light color/lumin output equation right for any given luminaire is not trivial. Digi-key has recently done a good job of bringing together a lot or material on LED lighting via their recent Tech Zone publication.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
