Light-Based Technologies patent approved by USPTO

Sept. 9, 2009
Date Announced: 09 Sep 2009 Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada –– Light-Based Technologies has developed an analog control circuit for a plurality of light sources. The company has been issued U.S. Patent No. 7,570,183 on August 4th, 2009 to protect this invention. According to the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, the invention relates to "a system of generation of multi-channel analog output signals, from a single analog input signal, and the controlled activation of peripheral devices responsive to the multi-channel analog output signals." Simplicity, intelligence and cost-effectiveness are key benefits to using this linear control scheme in LED product designs. LBT offers the technology in the form of LED Control chips that allow for greater lumen-per-watt efficiency over the entire operating range of fixtures, as well as generate less heat and electro-magnetic interference in the product.“We have always felt that our technology is unique and valuable,” says Jeanette Jackson, Chief Executive Officer. “With recognition from the USPTO that our approach to LED control is protected and defensible we look forward to the release of our LB4 family of chips and a suite of unique applications that employ this technology.”ABOUT Light-Based TechnologiesLight-Based Technologies has been in operation since 2004. Based in Vancouver, Canada, Light-Based Technologies has focused its efforts on the research and development of unique control solutions for the Solid State Lighting industry. With the upcoming release of its second family of integrated circuits, the LB4CMs, Light-Based Technologies is dedicated to fine-tuning complementary technologies that take advantage of the simplicity and power of its core control technology.
