New Webinar: LED Replacement for GU4 Halogen Lamps

It’s our 22nd webinar in partnership with element14 and we couldn’t be more excited about this month’s money saving topic! First featured as an article in the January & February 2014 double issue of Elektor Magazine, this webinar focuses on creating an economical and space-efficient replacement for the standard GU4 model 10-watt halogen lamp. Barely bigger than the GU4 bulb, this LED alternative consumes one-tenth of the power.

 

Today a plethora of alternatives is available to replace the majority of incandescent and halogen lamps. Since 100% compatible retrofit lamps are extremely complex (due to the optical, thermal, electrical and commercial requirements), the design of such an LED is normally reserved for a large team of developers. This webinar, however, hopes to give all you electronics enthusiasts and hobbyist out there what you crave most; the ability to design and build one yourself!

 

Over the course of the one hour webinar, we’ll discuss the design choices & tradeoffs that, over time, produced a circuit that can be quickly and simply replicated at home.

 

Presenting this month’s webinar is Fons Janssen, a Field Applications Engineer for Maxim Integrated with over a decade of experience. He has written a number of Elektor articles in the past, including the piece that inspired this webinar, and is known for designing simple & easy to reproduce circuits.
