Bigger question is why would a high volume semiconductor supplier feel the need to offer a board level product with almost no differentiation. The LEDs used are not leading edge by any stretch. These prices are "okay" for low volumes, but there are a 1000 companies who could do this for you in volume with much more efficient LEDs for the same price. Likely opportunistic. Someone made it now they feel they need to sell it.

Perhaps, it is too big. It can be much smaller form factor. If size is so big, can they integrate driver too?

It is quite true, I fully agree with you comment, LEDs are a great source of savings and quality but the prices of LEDs are still not comparable with CFL and FLs.

Looks like it will be a great product, when it's 1/4 the cost.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
