LuxLive round-up


LuxLive general architectural

It is a tribute to just how far LEDs have penetrated the lighting market.

Sadly, Electronics Weekly did not have time to visit the many Far Eastern manufacturers there, and steered away from most of the networking technology on show as it is covered in Electronics Weekly most weeks.

Here are just a few of the highlights seen amongst the exhibitors.

High CRI LED lighting

Nichia is claiming almost a CRI of ~100 without resorting to a UV die. It has combined a 420nm blue die with five phosphors: Apatite blue, silicate-based, LuAG, SCASN and an improved MGF.
