LED Assembly, Reliability & Testing Symposium - November 29 - December 1, 2016

Conference Chair - Dr. Diganta Das (diganta@umd.edu), Ph.D., CALCE/University of Maryland


Novermber 29 – December 1, 2016
Crowne Plaza Midtown
Atlanta, GA

Light emitting diodes (LEDs) is increasingly the technology of choice in lighting and display applications. LEDs offer design flexibility, from zero-dimensional (dot-scale lighting) to three-dimensional lighting (color dimming using combination with different colors). LEDs have small exterior outline dimensions while offering high-energy efficiency that results in lower power consumption. With appropriate thermal management, LEDs can have longer lifespans than conventional lighting sources. LEDs are also eco-friendly products with less UV radiation and no mercury.

LEDs had a rapid progression from research laboratories and academic institutions to store shelves and light sockets. This aggressive adoption curve has made LEDs ubiquitous across multiple applications, including automotive, industrial, sports, and entertainment lighting systems. However, the main challenge to an even wider deployment platform for LEDs is the disconnect between the potential performance observed in laboratories and the real performance observed in the field.

The LED Assembly, Reliability & Testing (A.R.T.) Symposium will provide attendees with information to bridge the gap between the semiconductor physics and the architectural design level issues in LED supply chain. The design, manufacturing, reliability assessment, testing and inspection of LEDs and LED lighting products are not at the same level of development and interest. The LED A.R.T. Symposium is the forum for the industry to explore the problems faced and offer solutions.
