FIMI Philips, a manufacturer of professional display solutions, is using high-flux light-emitting diode (LED) technology to improve color fidelity and extend product life in a new line of medical monitors. Scheduled to enter production this summer with a 15-inch model, FIMI's new monitors will be the first medical-grade displays to use LEDs, according to LumiMed, the developer of the LED-backlighting component. The company says its chip-controlled Luxeon technology overcomes limitations inherent in cold cathode fluorescent lamps, which are used for the liquid-crystal display backlights commonly incorporated into flat-panel products.
