LED driver architectures meet demanding application requirements (MAGAZINE)

Advanced applications such as lighting for health and trends such as connected lighting result in even greater reliance on a robust driver architecture, reports MAURY WRIGHT. The LED driver is now typically the most expensive element in a solid-state lighting (SSL) product. Five or six years back, the LEDs often represented more than 50% of the bill of materials of a general illumination fixture, but now the driver is far more costly than the packaged LEDs in most luminaires. Meanwhile, the driver design must enable flicker-free output and long life at a minimum. Most products also support dimming of some type, often with the expectation of smooth dimming to extremely low levels. Indeed, driver developers face these challenges before even getting to specialty applications. For instance, drivers for outdoor, horticultural, or hazardous applications may need enhanced environmental protection. Increasingly popular tunable-white products for applications such as human-centric lighting need multiple channels. And of course connected lighting is coming to all applications and impacting the driver. Read on for a look at some of the latest innovations in driver design. Let’s start off w...

History: New light on Wilmington’s ‘Casket Lady’ | News

Cloudy skies with a few showers this afternoon. High 76F. Winds SSW at 15 to 25 mph. Chance of rain 30%.. Rain early…then remaining cloudy with showers overnight. Low 57F. Winds NW at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 90%. Rainfall near a half an inch. The light is at the first en­trance to Wildwood Ceme­te­ry, at a gate originally bought by Dr. Mrs. France Hiller in the 1890s. Dr. Hiller, Wilming­ton’s famed “Casket Woman” provided for many improvements and expansion at the cemetery. She had long had a fixation with death, and the money to make elaborate funeral prep­arations. In the 1880s, she hired a Scottish woodcarver to prepare elaborate mahogany coffins for her and her husband. Dr. Henry Hiller, though, died before his outer coffin was ready. The coffin maker worked in a building on Middlesex Ave­nue. Dr. Mrs. Hiller would go there in her funeral clothes and lie in her coffin, looking at herself in a mirror. The Hillers had moved to Wil­mington from Cape Cod about 1875. Dr. Henry Hiller sold a patent medicine and be­came quite wealthy. He served the town as auditor of ac­counts in 1877, and again in the mid 1880s. He was a li­brary trustee in the late 1870s. When the to...

Casual sneakers are soon to be the top-selling footwear in the US — Quartzy

When the sneaker industry got going around the middle of the 19th century, the shoes were a niche product—footwear for the rich sport of lawn tennis (hence the enduring term “tennis shoes”). By now they’ve so far transcended just athletic use that market-research firm NPD Group forecasts “sport leisure” sneakers—the casual sort, as opposed to performance shoes meant specifically for athletic use—will become the largest footwear category in the US in 2020. The incumbent front runner they’ll overtake is what NPD calls “fashion” footwear, a category including most of everything else: shoes, boots, sandals, and slippers. It will mark a major milestone for sneakers, not least of all because the US is one of the world’s two biggest fashion markets. Sneakers have become integral to the way people dress (Quartz member exclusive). They’re so ubiquitous that it may surprise some to learn casual sneakers weren’t already the top category recorded by NPD. But the shoes had a lot of ground to make up. Sneaker makers also haven’t historically paid as much attention as they could have to women, a large and valuable customer group, and as indicated, their numbers also don’t include performance s...
