Microchip University provides you with the opportunity to learn more about general embedded control topics as well as Microchip, Atmel and Microsemi products. One of the courses Microchip University is offering is Introduction to Solid-State Lighting. 

This class is for the engineer who wants to take his/her general technical knowledge and expand it to include modern lamp and light fixture design. The first section will deal with LEDs and lighting essentials, particularly to establish the necessary vocabulary for further discussions. Next, there will be an overview of the drivers for LEDs (linear and switching), and how they can, and can’t, deal with lighting challenges. The final topic will be controls, both analog and digital, both wired and wireless. In this webinar, Clemens Valens (Elektor) and George Rasko (Microchip) will guide you through the course. They cover the most important aspects and give background information. They also show several videos from the course and go into more detail of the content of these videos. Of course, they will also answer all your questions in the Q&A session at the end of the webinar.
