In recent blogs, I covered the LED; interconnect of the Chip on Board LED device within a luminaire utilizing a TE Connectivity (TE) scalable or Zhaga compliant holder; the various device-level interconnects; and control, circuit protection and power aspects of Solid State Lighting (SSL) luminaires.† Now, letís bring it altogether for a visual illustration of an LED light source and how TE enables the proliferation of SSL applications.

In our last post, Hugo da Silva argued that cutting-edge LED applications demand cutting-edge LED materials. While this is an accurate statement, its counterpoint is also true: Advances in LED materials can help to advance LED applications.
This is evident in two coinciding trends: The accelerating adoption of high refractive index (RI) LED encapsulants based on phenyl silicones, and the increasing application of LEDs in general lighting. MORE
