The LED Fundamentals series from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors is a free primer on LEDs for lighting applications and LED system design considerations. The systems and technologies are introduced with a special focus placed on the engineering discipline categories of thermal, optical, and electrical.
In the General Basics category two new LED videos have been released aimed at educating users on how to read a datasheet from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors. The two-part series examines the key parameters specified on every page of an LED datasheet. A datasheet captures some of the most important technical characteristics of an LED, including electrical, optical and thermal qualities, knowledge of which is paramount for LED system design. Also, it has information on ordering codes, labeling and packaging of the LEDs.
The LED Fundamentals section of OSRAM Opto Semiconductors’ LED Light Site is always free to users and can be found at www.ledlight.osram-os.com/led-ssl-tools/led-fundamentals. The table of educational LED videos will continue to be populated with new presentations from the lighting experts at OSRAM Opto Semiconductors.
