Arrow Electronics and Cree have joined forces to give visitors to the euroLED exhibition the opportunity to learn the key principles of designing and building an LED-based lighting solution during a hands-on workshop. The aim of the seminar is to dispel a number of common misconceptions about LED lighting and help attendees to move beyond basic knowledge to attain real, practical skills.

The agenda will follow a structured approach to building an LED light, starting with the definition of design goals; estimating the efficiencies of thermal, optical and lighting systems; calculating the number of LEDs needed; considering the design options and selecting the appropriate elements. The presentation will be interspersed with breaks during which participants can each work on building their own luminaire.

Misconceptions addressed relate to: the cost relative to other technologies; the breadth of applications suited to LEDs; and the availability of suitable products for residential deployment. To register for the Arrow Electronics / Cree seminar at euroLED, visit

Arrow will also be exhibiting on stand LED 305 at the EuroLED exhibition and conference which takes place at the International Conference Centre, Birmingham on June 24/25.
