LONDON Optoelectronix Inc. (San Jose, Calif.) has raised $6 million in Series A round of investment to help it start making LED-based light bulbs, according to VentureBeat. The money has come from private unnamed investors, the report said.
Optoelectronix claims to have expertise in optical design, thermal management and electronic driving and recently began selling the ULE2210A LED Universal Light Engine. It is based on 40-mm diameter circular light intended for use in landscape, safety & security, vehicle and general-purpose lighting applications. The white light includes an integrated switching power supply for 12-Vac or 12-Vdc operation and integrated optics. The light runs at 1.5-W and produces an output of 50 lumens at the nominal operating current of 500 mA.
