  • LED Bulbs: The Future Of Lighting [View article]
    Thanks for your kind words. Having spent 25 years in the semiconductor business in a previous life, I know that technology marches on when it comes to semiconductors, and just about everything else for that matter.

    It won't be long before the economies of scale will do the same for LED lighting. That will, for the most part, relegate CFLs and incandescents to dust bins and museums.

    I saw it happen with semiconductors when I was in the industry, and it's continued to happen in the 12 years I've been out of it.

    Just look at the technology packed into a current smartphone, unthinkable at any price just a decade ago.

    LED lighting will eventually transform the energy picture in the U.S. and elsewhere. Cree will certainly be one of the drivers and beneficiaries of that transformation.
