Presenter: Dr. Jianzhong Jiao, Director of Regulations and Emerging Technologies at Osram Opto Semiconductors, Inc.
Standards, while voluntary, help technology industries to cooperate and agree on common methods and goals related to product functionality, form factor, performance levels, and many other characteristics. In the LED lighting area, standards are key to broader SSL deployment across a variety of applications. That also means that there are even more standards bodies involved than typical in most technology segments. In the LED area, standards impact everything from the manufacturing and marketing of LED components to prescribed performance levels of end products in specific applications.
LEDs Magazine regularly covers standards issues, and Dr. Jianzhong Jiao of Osram Opto Semiconductors writes on standards topics for the magazine on a recurring basis. Dr. Jiao will present a webcast focused on LED lighting standards, including an update on the latest standards that are both in use and under development.
The presentation will differentiate standards from related but separate regulations and laws. The talk will address the numerous standards bodies that come into play in the LED space ranging from the IES that covers illumination in general to market-centric organizations. Product developers, design engineers, optical engineers, managers, and lighting specifiers will learn how standards impact their work, where standards fit in specific applications, and where to turn for more information.
