Along with the keynote speech, Avnet Electronics Marketing will exhibit at this event, which takes place in New Delhi on 17 - 19 December 2010. It will also showcase a number of state-of-the-art innovative products from Avnet, from a graphite sheet with excellent thermal conducting properties specially designed for LED lighting applications, to dimmable high performance LED drivers, a range of LEDs, specialized power supplies and innovative LED cooling systems.

"In a country the size of India, any opportunity to get key solutions developers and providers together to share knowledge and ideas is very valuable," said Cary Eskow. "LED lighting technology has made great strides in recent years, and now has a more sophisticated array of applications in production than many would have believed possible a few years ago. Avnet is at the forefront of that, and we look forward to participating in this major event."

High-brightness LEDs have revolutionized many lighting products, but of course LEDs are not restricted to white light. New groundbreaking developments in high-power infrared and ultraviolet LEDs are enabling diverse applications ranging from medical diagnostic imaging, defense and surveillance, to high-speed industrial curing of inks and coatings. Furthermore, recent findings on human vision and photobiology have the potential to unleash a new wave of LED-powered products which can improve the quality of life. Mr. Eskow will discuss many of these concepts and their associated design issues.

Some of the Avnet Lightspeed products that will be on display at the event include:

-- 36W LED street lamp module, using just fourteen of

  Osram's Diamond Dragon integrated-lens LEDs

-- 10W MR16 Lamp, using just one LED and an innovative

  cooling system from Nuventix

-- 36W PAR38 LAMP LED driver, using just three LEDs

-- PGS Graphite Sheet, excellent thermal conductivity

  specially designed for LED lighting applications.

"As the leading electronics component distributor in India, we will leverage this platform to provide customers with the latest LED technologies and solutions that customers need for their lighting design, supported by Avnet's comprehensive suite of lighting products, our renowned design expertise and engineering capability," said Ramani Sundaresan, country head, Avnet Electronics Marketing, India.

        • Republicans are finding it's one thing to issue a blanket promise to cut spending, an entirely different matter when you actually take the scissors to $1 of every $6 spent by agencies like the IRS, the FBI, NASA and the National Park Service.
        • That's the real-world impact of House Republicans' campaign promise to cut $100 billion from the budgets of domestic agencies.

            • DUBLIN - A 1997 letter from the Vatican warned Ireland's Catholic bishops not to report all suspected child-abuse cases to police - a disclosure that victims' groups described as "the smoking gun" needed to show that the church enforced a worldwide culture of covering up crimes by pedophile priests.
            • The newly revealed letter, obtained by Irish broadcasters RTE and provided to The Associated Press, documents the Vatican's rejection of a 1996 Irish church initiative to begin helping police identify pedophile priests following Ireland's first wave of publicly disclosed lawsuits.
            • The letter undermines persistent Vatican claims, particularly when seeking to defend itself in U.S. lawsuits, that Rome never instructed local bishops to withhold evidence or suspicion of crimes from police.

                • The flooding in Victoria follows weeks of massive flooding in northeastern Queensland, which swamped two-thirds of the giant state, paralyzed several mines and left 30 people dead.
                • Elsewhere in Queensland, authorities gave several of the state's waterlogged coal mines special exemptions to environmental rules so they could pump water out into their already-flooded surroundings.

                    • In financial parlance, it's called "playing the float."
                    • An audit by the Health and Human Services inspector general's office estimates that private Medicare Advantage plans collected $376 million from investment income on advance payments from the government in 2007, the latest year available.
