New Group to Support Customers’ Solid-State Lighting System Design Requirements
SUNNYVALE, CALIF., May 4, 2009 — Bridgelux, Inc., a U.S. lighting company and leading supplier of energy-saving light-emitting diode (LED) based light sources, today announced that the company has launched a Lighting Services Group offering its customers a wide range of design and support services. As an increasing number of lamp and luminaire manufacturers transition to solid-state lighting, new system-level design opportunities arise. The charter of the Bridgelux Lighting Services Group is to support customers in developing application specific designs both cost effectively and with reduced time-to-market.
“Rapid adoption of Bridgelux LED Arrays has opened up new opportunities for lamp and luminaire designs. Many customers have already incorporated our array products into new lighting products, taking advantage of the ease of use and plug and play aspects of the product line.” said Keith Scott, Bridgelux vice president of business development. “To enable additional opportunities and further support design activities, we have developed a Lighting Services Group. This group will work with our customers on designing and developing new optical, electrical, thermal and mechanical designs to further simplify the task of adopting solid state technology.”
Bridgelux now offers a full range of design and support services to help customers develop their lighting products. Core members of the Bridgelux Lighting Services Group have over 15 years of experience in developing solid state lighting systems and complementary components including precision optics, electronics, and module designs. Through close engagement with customers, this team will help to accelerate market penetration of this new lighting technology, the promise of increased energy efficiency, and enable new design possibilities for lamps and luminaires.
“With the recent market introduction of the Bridgelux LED Array product family, designed specifically for the lighting market, we now offer a unique solution for designers and manufacturers that will simplify their efforts and reduce cost,” said Mark Swoboda, Bridgelux chief executive officer. “The Bridgelux Lighting Services Group supports both our focus on driving sales of our LED Array products and our goal of enabling a rapid displacement of conventional lighting sources.”
