A new light "bulb?"
Is something like this the successor to the Edison screw-in light bulb base? It's the Helion LED lighting module from Bridgelux and partner Molex, a product the company plans to start producing early next year aimed primarily at commercial customers. The module includes the electronics called a driver needed for power conversion within the device, rather than as a separate "brick." That means the modules can be fitted into light fixtures and then upgraded by replacing the module without having to update the driver.
