Abstract
LED technology has come a long way since its humble beginnings as the HP-35 calculator display. Today's LEDs exceed the luminous efficiency of filtered incandescent bulbs. The technology is rapidly advancing. New colors and higher efficiencies are available today that were unheard of even two years ago. This technology tutorial will cover the latest advances in LED technology worldwide. New materials, such as AlInGaP and GaN can provide luminous efficiencies over 20 lumens/watt with colors such as blue, green, yellow, and red. This technology tutorial will show how LEDs can be assembled into large area full-color displays for applications like traffic signals, intelligent highway warning signs, and advertising billboards.
