All LED Lighting will cover the full range of indoor, outdoor, and industrial lighting applications, including high-power drivers, optics, thermal management, lighting control systems, emerging government, and industry standards.

"LEDs provide many advantages over previous lighting technologies. However, engineers will need to master many new skills and unique technical challenges as they put these remarkable devices to work in their products," said Kathy Astromoff, CEO, Electronics, UBM Tech.

"It's a privilege to launch a community that serves the solid state lighting professionals who are already making dramatic improvements in the quality of life in homes, workplaces, and virtually every other place where artificial lighting is used," said Goldberg. "Our mission is to help our audience acquire the knowledge and skills they need to create and use the LED-based products that are transforming the global lighting industry. In addition to providing information on the latest technologies, products, and design practices, the site will serve as a forum where engineers and industry professionals are encouraged to interact with our industry experts and share their own knowledge with other community members."
