Solid state light production using flexible grouping of leds


Solid state lighting devices (e.g., lamps and fixtures) are produced using unbinned/uncharacterized leds from an entire led production “cloud” by way of sequentially measuring light emitted from the unbinned leds, and then assigning/placing each unbinned led immediately into an associated led product group (e.g., directly onto a pcb that forms part of the final lamp/fixture). The group assignment for each led is based on how its measured light matches with other leds based on flexible group characteristics, which are generated in accordance with user-defined parameters, whereby each led is placed in a product group such that light collectively generated by the leds of each product group complies with the user-defined parameters.
