Collaborating for success: LED systems reliability


Davis, J. L. (2013, January). Collaborating for success: LED systems reliability. Presented at DOE SSL R&D Workshop, Long Beach, CA.


This presentation describes the reliability of LED luminaires and why reliability should be considered from a systems perspective. The weak link determines reliability and LED luminaire reliability involves more than the LEDs. Even under overstress conditions, LED luminaires exhibit a high level of robustness. There have been several collaborative efforts among industry participants to share information on this critical issue. Collaborative efforts continue to gain momentum. There is still an opportunity for additional voices from the industry to help understand the issues surrounding true lifetime and reliability.
