Creating value with Ultima - a new disruptive technology for LED tubes Learn more

Program

Electronics

The Electronics program runs various long-term R&D projects on increasing adoption of LED lighting, in collaboration with world leading companies. Flagship solutions are OneTLed and the brand new Ultima technology.

About our Electronics program

The program runs several long-term research and development projects in collaboration with world leading companies. The IP thus generated is commercialized through licensing contracts with strategic partners. We are highly committed to support these partners during the implementation phase of its IP in finished products. This is the way we make the real difference.

OneTLed is a unique LED solution for replacing fluorescent tubes, that works on 99% of all ballasts and fixtures - showing exceptional retrofit compatibility.

A brand new technology in our Electronics program is Ultima. Ultima is a patented, disruptive technology that substantially accelerates the positive impact of LED retrofit tubes on business performance and the climate.

The electronics program also works together with the Seaborough Life Science program. The objective is supporting the research process and bringing out products that improve people’s well-being and health.
