CARROLLTON, TX -- Providing solid state lighting
design engineers with a complete technical reference on LED
construction, performance and thermal management, TT electronics
OPTEK Technology has developed a DVD that presents detailed
information about visible LED technology. The DVD examines the
complex issues of LED construction and device physics, as well
as OPTEK's thermal management solutions for optimizing visible
LED efficiency, color consistency and longevity.

"With visible LEDs replacing incandescent and fluorescent sources
in more and more lighting applications, LED design considerations,
specifically thermal management issues, have become a major issue
in the solid state lighting community," said Alan Bennett, vice
president of sales and marketing for OPTEK Technology. "Our new
DVD provides these lighting design engineers with a comprehensive
technical resource on the basics of LED construction, thermal
management and performance."

Another resource available to the lighting engineer described in the
DVD is OPTEK's VLED laboratory, Bennett continued. OPTEK
provides an array of equipment and expertise to accurately assess
traditional lighting designs and proposed solid state equivalents.

Typical applications for OPTEK's visible LED product line include
commercial and institutional lighting as well as backlighting of
displays, indication, channel lighting, interior and exterior
automotive lighting and general illumination applications.

The VLED DVD is available free from OPTEK Technology. The video
is also featured on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/user/OPTEK1645.
