Litecool lowers LED costs, finding competition in thermal management along the way

Litecool recently announced a novel light-emitting diode (LED) packaging plan that uses vertical dielectrics instead of a horizontal layer. We spoke with Litecool CEO James Reeves, who said that in Litecool's packaging, there is no heat transfer in the dielectric, and a manufacturer could even us...
