The LEDLUM project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 731466.
The project LEDLUM (Tiny Light Engine for Large Scale LED Lighting) will make major improvements to the volume, the weight, the lifetime and the size of the driver (electrical engine) of light emitting diodes (LED), that are used in the majority of solid state light (SSL) systems. These improvements will be made while keeping the power rating of the driver. To achieve this, the operating frequency of the driver will be increased by approximately a factor of 1,000.
The LEDLUM project aims to reach the following objectives:
To achieve these objectives, the LEDLUM project expects the following innovations:
The LEDLUM consortium brings together a European team of recognized organizations and respected universities with scientific and technological backgrounds, making it well-positioned to achieve its objectives. All in all there are 7 partners from 4 different European countries including 2 SMEs, 3 industrial companies, and 2 universities.
