LED Guts

I've been writing a lot bout LED lights lately, and I'm not about to stop because this technology is definitely on its way up and should eventually provide most of the electric light used around the world. If you're curious about what the insides of a LED bulb look like, check out the teardown of the Philips AmbientLED 12.5-watt LED that the friendly bunch over at EDN have done here: Part 1, part 2 (the second part is the actual teardown, the first part is more about light directionality, which shows just how clever the Philips LED is). That bulb uses a similar technology to the Philips LED bulb that recently won the DOE's $10m L-Prize.
