LED Technology Seminar

LED technology development leads to tremendous new applications and exciting opportunities in recent years.   Despite fundamental improvements in the performance of light output, many problems designers are facing today remain very challenging, such as new materials, power efficiency, heat control, process technology, packaging, and etc.  As NACSA’s previous LED events have been well received, we have invited two distinguished speakers in this seminar. M.W. Lui, a proponent of LED technology, will introduce to you ever expending world of LED, from backlighting of cell phones, tablets, monitors and TVs to PICO projectors and automobile headlamps; from flashlights to light fixtures for your home, office, building, and street. Dr. Ernest Demaray, a senior Silicon Valley scientist, inventor, and executive, will open the Pandora’s Box of challenges surrounding the use of the light inside the solid to provide light for us in the world. By walking down the winding paths further, we discover unexpected, surprising opportunities to overcome the difficulties, and find new ways hidden today.

We cordially invite aspiring professionals to join us at this very interesting technical seminar. Take the opportunity to learn more about the industry trend and its outlook, and mingle with other professionals and entrepreneurs.
