LED basics – from technological background to historical facts
In the last few years, LED technology has continued to develop apace, especially in the general lighting sector. This success is hardly surprising, as LEDs have numerous advantages over traditional lighting technologies: They are small, compact, have a very long operating life and can be used in an extremely versatile way. There is also their colour rendering, which ranges from good to excellent. These are only a few reasons for learning more about this efficient, powerful technology.
