Everlight claims highest luminous efficiency with 228lm/W industrial LEDs

This efficiency is reached at 65mA for a colour temperature of 5000K and a Colour Rendering Index (CRI) over 80, in compliance with DLC 4.0. As per light-on tests in high temperature (105ºC), 5630X LEDs can satisfy
L90>36,000 hours and a colour tolerance adjustment less than 3 SDCM. Compared to ordinary LED lamps (2000lm), the 5630X Series can efficiently reduce the power consumption by 30-40%, says the manufacturer.

Over-the-air, far-field RF charger gets FCC approval for consumer devices

Creating a coverage area like Wi-Fi, a Powercast transmitter automatically charges enabled devices when within range. The transmitter uses the 915-MHz ISM band to send RF energy to a tiny Powercast receiver chip embedded in a device, which converts it to direct current (DC) to directly power or recharge that device’s batteries.

Plessey wants to be first to market with monolithic microLED displays


The company has also started an extensive licensing programme to share its GaN-on-Silicon expertise to microLED manufacturers in line with its new business strategy, as a technology platform provider.

Demand for microLED displays is accelerating with research consultancy Yole Développement forecasting the market could reach up to 330 million units by 2025.

Scalable image sensor platform targets ADAS and autonomous driving

Additional features include functional safety up to ASIL-C, high-dynamic range (HDR), an industry-first cybersecurity option, and second-generation wafer stacking technology that reduces package size. Individual products in this platform are currently under evaluation by many technology partners, including Mobileye and NVIDIA for use with its DRIVE AI computing platform for autonomous vehicles.

ADI demos multi-system Ethernet connectivity

In two separate settings, ADI showed the fido5000 forwarding Profinet data over Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) and Ethernet/IP over TSN; in both cases 802.1AS enhancements was used as the basis for scheduling the network traffic.
