Research and Development for Low Cost Electronic Fluorescent Ballasts (both fixed and dimming) for T-8 (and other high pressure) Bulbs
Fundamental research in fluorescent bulb configurations for low cost manufacturing.
Both analog and digital signal processing control loops investigated.
Goals: high power factor, low harmonic content, even lamp dimming from full bright to black, low fabrication costs for high volume manufacturing, etc.
