Streetlight Intelligence, National collaborate on street-lighting technologies
National Semiconductor and Streetlight Intelligence plan to combine their respective experience in integrated LED drivers and intelligent control and monitoring products for street lighting.
The companies plan to integrate SLQ's Lumen IQ adaptive street-light control systems together with National Semiconductor's LED driver technology. They will also develop and promote integrated LED driver and intelligent control and monitoring products for street lighting.

"We anticipate marketing products to LED street-light manufacturers that are feature rich while offering a major cost advantage over current options," states Vince Krynski, CEO of SLQ. “[This] could potentially have a dramatic effect on the overall adoption of LED-based adaptive street lighting.” "By working closely with National, our ultimate objective is to increase the use of intelligent street-lighting controls, reduce the cost of production and ease the cost of installation," continued Krynski.
Joe DeNicholas, Director of National Semiconductor's Lighting Business Unit, said that SLQ shares National’s vision regarding the global adoption of adaptive street lighting. “With National's abilities in integrated circuitry, analog and power-management systems along with SLQ's advanced control and monitoring technologies for both LED lighting as well as HID legacy systems, there is an opportunity to realize our shared vision to develop a unique, world-class street-lighting technology platform."
