We had a very productive day full of high tech. We “touched and felt” the first factory prototype of the outer casing this morning and spent an hour reviewing the fine points of this design from both an aesthetic and technical point of view. We then set about making minor adjustments to the design from the decisions in our discussion and the factory CTO ran the latest CAD file through the thermal simulation test in Solid Works.
Overall it looks like we are going to achieve a very bright bulb, more than 800 lumens (fingers crossed). The LED head design layout has been finalized and sent away to be made into a production prototype. It should be back in 2 days time ready to put into the casing.
Marc’s working hard on putting programmable headers on the LIFX control board to send back to the team so we can create the firmware setup environment using the LIFX control boards. He’s also supervising the power supply LED driver functional board and helping Jacky layout the condensed version of the power supply ready for insertion into the bulb casing.
