Avnet’s lighting ecosystem: LightSpeed

Lighting solutions tend to be a careful balancing act between the art of design and the science of technology. Finding the right drivers for a particular LED is just the tip of the iceberg to designing an attractive lighting solution that strikes the right balance—and the skills needed to bring things together are hard to find in one single company. When you include that advancements in lighting technology have dynamically changed the landscape across industries from UV to horticulture and smart lighting and the balancing act gets even more complex.

That’s why Avnet’s assembled an offering of in-house as well as supplier and partner resources to provide a true LED design and support ecosystem: LightSpeed. Our team takes the time to understand your objective, cover the various design trade-offs and recommend unbiased options to balance budget, performance and development times in the pursuit of HCL—human centric lighting. That means analyzing luminous efficacy to measure how well LEDs produce light, understanding where to employ COB LEDs or even color temperatures best suited for smart home versus industrial applications. During this HCL process, though, we are always considering supply chain, regulatory compliance and integration considerations to get your HCL lighting solution to market faster than your competition.
