Newsun Develops AC POWER LED without Driver

Chinese firm Newsun has announced to develop a real AC POWER LED after seven years of research and development in collaboration with Professor Edson Products. According to Newsun, there is no need for a transformer to change the power from AC to DC. What's more it doesn't need an LED driver. Not needing either a transformer or driver means that the light source only needs a tiny space. The LED operates at 85 lumens/Watt and has a CRI of 82 at a relatively low temperature. Lamps employing the LED have a very long life because in most cases, ...

Introduction to LEDs’ Basics

By Scott Patterson Light bulbs are seemed everywhere, and there are more than 20 billion light bulbs around the world right now. On an average that for every one person, there would be three light bulbs. In the future, we can expect a replacement of all the current lightbulbs with those of LEDs. The reason for the occurrence of this replacement is due to the fact that LEDs’ efficacy is multiple times higher than those of incandescent light bulbs. LED is possible in reproduce the theoretical limit of the conversion from electricity to light set by physics. LEDinsid...
