New Casambi-Enabled LED Drivers from Harvard

New Casambi-Enabled LED Drivers from Harvard Casambi provides a modern wireless lighting control system based on Bluetooth Low Energy, the only low power wireless technology in all modern smart phones, tablets and even smart watches. Working with Holders, Harvard Power Systems have integrated a Casambi node into its full range of CoolLED PRO CLi Series LED drivers whilst retaining all their high specification features in their ultra-compact size – the drivers are half the size of other lower technology drivers. The key advantage of the smaller case size of Harvard LED drivers is that they fit through relatively small 40 mm or 56 mm holes in the ceiling, making them ideal as a fast-fit solution for use with LED downlights.

Osram Presents New Infrared Laser for Short-Range LiDAR Applications

Osram Presents New Infrared Laser for Short-Range LiDAR Applications How long do you think cars will be steered by a driver? For autonomous driving to become widespread, several legal and technological hurdles will have to be overcome in the upcoming years. Nevertheless, car manufacturers and mobility service providers are already working on their visions for driverless vehicles. The need for autonomous vehicles to more comprehensively and reliably detect their surroundings makes the number and arrangement of sensors, such as LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging), more critical. As the market leader for LiDAR lasers, Osram Opto Semiconductors plays a central role in the realization of these applications. With the SPL DP90_3, the semiconductor expert is expanding its portfolio with a component that has been specially developed for high-resolution, near-field detection in LiDAR systems. Read more »
