Jade Sky Technologies (JST), a cleantech start-up manufacturer of driver ICs for LED lighting applications, announces its affiliate partnership with the California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC). Jade Sky Technologies was chosen by the CLTC to collaborate on its LED-adoption project based on JST’s design approach that results in the optimum end-user experience for LED lighting. The aim of the partnership is to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of meeting the best-in-class standards set by the California Quality LED Lamp Specification set to take effect January 2014.
Jade Sky Technologies’ highly integrated driver solution enables true compatibility and smooth 100 percent down to 0 percent dimming with all commercially available dimmers and occupancy sensors. Leveraging the benefits of standard CMOS technology, JST’s driver ICs enable extremely simple, cost-effective solutions that maintain the highest levels of efficiency and power factor.
“JST shares our goal of making the transition to LED lamps a satisfying experience for consumers,” says CLTC Director Michael Siminovitch, who is also the Rosenfeld Chair in Energy Efficiency at UC Davis. “All of us at CLTC look forward to working with JST to accelerate LED adoption.”
“We are excited to work with the CLTC because we believe in its mission: to drive the mass adoption of energy-efficient lighting and to meet the State of California’s aggressive energy demand and emission reduction goals,” says Jade Sky Technologies CEO David Chen. “We already have the technology to make a true retrofit LED bulb. Our goal is to simplify the consumer’s LED lighting buying decision to ‘clear or frost’?”
