Review – AVAGO – ASMT-LW60 – LED Fibre Optic Strip

I’d say that LEDs have  been one of the fastest spreading new technologies in the last 10 years.   Consider now that most cars are being manufactured with LED lighting for all the turn/marker/brake/DRL lights.  They have even made an impact with home lighting – even though people are being gouged with inflated pricing (IMHO) from places like Home Depot, Rona, Lowes etc..  This will change as LEDs become mainstream… Just wish I had invested in those companies who first got on the bandwagon!

Anyway, I decided to go away from the typical LED strip and try something new.  The Avago ASMT-LW60’s are classified as LED strips, but I am not sure I agree.  They are unique in that they use fibre optics to provide the illumination while a tiny SMD LED is buried inside each end of the light unit.


Review – OPTEK – Warm White LED Strip

Lately, I’ve been toying around with different LED strips for my projects.   I’ve had the chance to use a variety of LED strips (both RGB, and single colour types).  They come in many flavours – water proof, 3m-backed, silcone encased, sealed, non-sealed, exposed etc.   All have their advantages / disadvantages.
