Guest blog from Tamer Kira High-brightness (HB) light emitting diodes (LED) are making driving safer, reducing energy consumption and, as a side benefit, giving automotive designers more creative license in headlamp designs. LEDs can save 50-70% of the energy use that traditional lighting technologies consume, reducing carbon emissions in the process. They also last longer, boasting lifetimes of 50,000 hours or more. And, because they turn on and off faster than incandescent lamps, they’re ideal for applications like brake lights. From a design standpoint, though, working with HB LED technologiesRead More

It’s a matter of fact that society is facing the trend of people moving into cities. Especially in Asia more and more so-called megacities emerge. In China on its own more than 500 million people moved to its cities during the last 35 years. The Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation & Development (OECD) says that there are already 15 megacities in China. And this trend will continue, also in other areas of the world. In 2050 about two thirds of all people will live in urbanized metropolitan areas. Skyscrapers FullRead More

Things You Will Miss If You Don’t Attend LpS 2016

Only one week ahead is the LED professional Symposium + Expo 2016 (LpS) in Bregenz, Austria. The 6th international LpS event on solid-state lighting is already casting its shadows. EVB Elektronik will be present with its Lighting Segment “EBV Lightspeed” from September 20 – 22 in the premises of the world-famous Festspielhaus Bregenz, located directly on Lake Constance. Here we want to come up with some reasons, why Europe’s foremost lighting technology event is a must-attend event for industry experts, researchers and lighting designers. LpS 2016 will again cover aRead More
The introduction of solid-state lighting (SSL) to environmental lighting applications has been the most disruptive break-through within the lighting segment since the invention of the light bulb. LEDs enable intelligent and flexible illumination while being a lot more energy efficient than conventional light sources (learn more in the article “Artificial Light Can Do A “LoT” More Than You Might Know” here). Control & Powering Of LED Applications In order to access new possibilities like human centric or horticultural lighting intelligent control of the applications is required. Within the age ofRead More

A Round Tour Through Light + Building 2016

You can certainly say that every trade fair has its own flair. But every other year there is this unique atmosphere that fills the halls of the exhibition centre in Frankfurt am Main during Light + Building trade fair. During the past couple of days about 2.500 exhibitors exhibited under the motto ‘digital – individual – networked’. Among them were important technology alliances, some of our supplier partners, and of course EBV with the EBVchips program. Reason enough to summarize some highlights, major headlines and impressions from the event. SecureRead More

Lighting Academy 2016 – Three Reasons Why To Attend

March is the month of the year, which most people in the northern hemisphere associate with the end of the winter season. In fact, meteorologically as well as astronomically, it marks the beginning of spring. The season when perceptibly and visibly daylight lasts longer. Maybe it is just a coincident, that right at this time two events will take place which are related to lighting, and even at the same place. World’s Leading Lighting Trade Fair On the one hand there’s the world’s leading exhibition for architecture and technology takingRead More
London, the capital of the United Kingdom is world famous for the Buckingham Palace, the Big Ben and great pubs. However last week more than 7000 visitors out of a huge variety of sectors like retail, hospitality, healthcare, education, commercial, transport and rail, street lighting and industrial as well as technical streams and general industry traveled to the city not hunting for selfies in front of famous attractions but to attend three (!) lighting events focused on modern LED technology. The combination of lighting events which made visiting London well-worthRead More
Here is the thing about last week’s Professional Lighting Designers Convention (PLDC) 2015 in Rome: If you missed it, that’s bad news for you. Why? Firstly, the conference created for the global lighting design market is biannual – which means you need to wait 2 years for the next event. Secondly, it has been so good I’d dare to say it was an unique experience. To give you at least a little comfort I have summarized some highlights here (you might want to listen to Stereo MC’s Song Connected whichRead More
Do you remember the first consumer IoT device you read about? Ok, your first generation iPhone doesn’t count. Maybe you’ll think about the Nest thermostat? When it was introduced in 2011 the Nest Learning Thermostat was one of the first globally successful IoT devices. It was followed by a big hype around similar products and smart hubs which were meant to control our lighting, heating, doors and more in order to save energy and simplify our lives. Now, a couple years later the term “Internet of Things” is omnipresent andRead More
