This technology has the potential to revolutionise the way we use and build LED replacement lamps as we no longer have to be concerned about the electronic driver within the lamp and its compatibility, dimming capability and failure issues. In most cases, the driver is the weak link in the chain leading to early failures while the LED chip remains serviceable. This is fantastic news for the industry and consumers alike as it has the potential to lower the cost of production making lamps more affordable in the future.
An LED driver is an electrical device which regulates the power to an LED or a string (or strings) of LEDs. An LED driver responds to the changing needs of the LED, or LED circuit, by providing a constant quantity of power to the LED as its electrical properties change with temperature.
