Lamina Lighting Incorporated (Lamina), an innovator of LED lighting systems and technologies, today announced it has launched the Lamina Resource Center, a unique service that allows customers and potential customers to utilize the company’s specialized expertise and equipment for their own product development purposes. The Center also gives customers the ability to “test-drive” the integration of Lamina’s unique solid-state LED lighting technology into their designs and concepts, giving them a true indication of the product’s enhanced potential through the use of LEDs.
“Lamina’s Resource Center is a great way for lighting professionals to see exactly what our innovative technology can do when integrated into their designs,” said Frank M. Shinneman, President and CEO of Lamina. “We have made our specialized equipment and technical expertise available to our customers for use in their concept and product development.”
Services offered by the Lamina Resource Center include Proof of Concept Development and Optical Measurement Services. Through the company’s Proof of Concept services, customers can validate the use of Lamina’s LED technology in their applications, either through demos or by actually integrating the technology into existing fixtures to the point of electronics circuit design. This gives customers the resources and confidence to ascertain the appropriateness of solid-state lighting for their application, and take the first step in development to showcase the result of integrating LED technology.
Through Lamina’s Optical Measurement Services, customers can take advantage of Lamina’s design and measuring equipment — some of the most sophisticated in the industry. These devices include high-precision illuminance (lux) meters, LightTools, Zemax and ASAP optical design software, integrating spheres, spectoradiometers, goniometers, luminance meters, and more.
Other services offered by Lamina’s Resource Center may include the development of complex custom electronics applications where Lamina’s experienced electronic engineers will utilize the company’s design and simulation tools to assist customers in the development of applications that require in-depth knowledge of communication protocols, microcontrollers, analog power management circuits, and other technologies. Optical Design services would involve implementing a custom optical design then simulating it in order to demonstrate expected results, and then assistance in implementing a final optical solution. Evaluating secondary optics would utilize Lamina’s measurement expertise to assess and characterize the ever-increasing variety of standard optics available, allowing the customer to identify which optic is suitable for their specific application. And finally, the characterization of high-power LEDs can help customers save money by using Lamina’s dedicated light measurement equipment to provide a ample variety of accurate LED measurements, rather than outsourcing the acquisition of this data to a third party.
Founded in 2001 as a spin-off from the Sarnoff Corporation, Lamina Lighting is at the forefront of global LED research and product development. With its Atlas(tm), Titan(tm) and SoL(tm) Series LED product lines, Lamina provides ultra-high brightness white LED lighting products that satisfy the growing global need to replace conventional lighting with LED technology for general illumination. Among its other benefits, Lamina’s environmentally responsive LED technology and programs aid in lowering CO2 emissions-the dominant GHG contributor to global warming. Headquartered in Westampton, New Jersey, Lamina Lighting is funded by five premier technology venture funds. For more, visit http://www.laminalighting.com .
