The LED Light Site is a great source of information and we are continually updating it with new presentations and educational tools, making it an invaluable asset for our customers.
Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) October 12, 2011
OSRAM Opto Semiconductors, a global LED component manufacturer, recently added new tools and resources to its LED Light Site to help keep customers updated on the latest general lighting solutions, while providing continued LED education through video demonstrations and technical papers.
The LED manufacturer provides educational videos in a video series called “LED Fundamentals,” the newest addition being a two part series on “How to Read a Datasheet.”
These new additions to the growing LED Fundamentals section examine the key parameters specified on every page of an LED Datasheet from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors. A datasheet captures some of the most important technical characteristics of an LED, including electrical, optical and thermal quantities, knowledge of which is paramount for an LED system design. It also has information on ordering codes, labeling and packaging of the LEDs.
“Having access to the latest technical information is critical to the success of our customers as they work to develop the most competitive and innovative lighting products in the marketplace,” said Brian Terao, Director of Solid State Lighting for OSRAM Opto Semiconductors, Inc. “The LED Light Site is a great source of information and we are continually updating it with new presentations and educational tools, making it an invaluable asset for our customers.”
OSRAM Opto Semiconductors also offers exclusive information on its website for those who register in the Free Tools section. One of the newest additions to this section is a Printed Circuit Board design for the OSLON LEDs linear board. The LED Light Site allows you to download the Gerber file for several Printed Circuit Board designs from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors. To gain this limited access, sign-up is completely free and only takes a moment of your time at http://ledlight.osram-os.com/led-ssl-tools/.
Technical Papers and Presentations are also available for members to view after a quick and free registration in the Tools section. The most recent addition is an Application Guide on “Optical Considerations for LED Selection,” which emphasizes the optical properties that must be considered when choosing an LED for a specific application.. OSRAM Opto Semiconductors offers products suited for a wide range of applications and optical systems.
The LED Light Site is continuously adding new educational videos, tools and resources for the solid state lighting industry. Regular updates are made to ensure customers are kept up-to-date on industry news and can access exclusive insight to OSRAM Opto Semiconductors’ latest innovations.
