Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, led by founder and President Robert Miller, is proud to observe the 10th anniversary of the company's Lighting Resource Center in Montreal, Quebec.
Opened ten years ago and the first of their kind in the industry, Future Electronics' Lighting Resource Centers (LRCs) offer unprecedented service and support for customers to develop LED-based applications. The LRCs offer key services including: proof of concept development, LED and system measurements, optical design and simulation, thermal design and simulation, mechanical design and simulation, basic LED board layout design and a tool loaner program. Proof of concept development consists of the LRCs being able to physically validate LED technology in applications - either with application demos, or by integrating LED technology into existing fixtures, including electronics circuit design. LED and System measurements are done in the Optical Measurement Lab, enabling LED and certain application-level characterizations. The LRCs enable customers to leverage the solid-state knowledge and experience of qualified engineers, validate designs with high precision laboratory equipment, and minimize application development cycles.
"Our Lighting Resource Centers provide expertise in every area of LED engineering required for developing LED-based lighting applications," explained Jamie Singerman, Corporate Vice President Worldwide. "For lighting companies that want to enter the market but don't have the optical, thermal, power, systems and LED engineering knowledge in-house, our Lighting Resource Centers can be of extraordinary value by reducing development costs and allowing companies to enter the LED lighting market more quickly."
Singerman added, "Future Electronics's investment in these Lighting Resource Centers clearly demonstrates our commitment to enable customers in their quest for better and simpler lighting solutions."
