Welcome to the LEDs Magazine weekly newsletter for Dec. 5, 2018. Wow, it's hard to believe December has arrived. Indeed, 2018 has passed quickly in the solid-state lighting (SSL) world.

We aren't far from gathering in Las Vegas for Strategies in Light 2019. The Feb. 27-Mar. 1 event will mark the 20th anniversary of the conference that traces it roots to a one-day, one-track conference in a San Francisco airport area hotel. The upcoming event at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center carries the theme "Advancing the future of light" and the program certainly promises to deliver on that theme. For example, the track "Moving the lighting market forward: Where we are; Where we're going" will focus on important emerging applications, including human-centric lighting, horticultural lighting, and connected lighting.

Despite the turn of the calendar to December, and the approaching holiday season, there is business news breaking in SSL and LEDs. MLS, which just recently appointed a new CEO at LEDvance, has made the decision to merge its Forest Lighting business into LEDvance.

In that same story, we covered some ongoing intellectual property (IP) activity. Seoul Semiconductor has extended its patent infringement claim against retailer Fry's Electronics after initially filing the action back in August. The target is TVs that integrate LEDs and other technology that Seoul says infringe 19 patents. In the general lighting sector, meanwhile, Eaton has settled an IP skirmish with Cordelia Lighting and Jimway.

We also have posted a story about former LEDvance parent Osram. We have written a number of stories about that company's strategic move toward the Internet of Things (IoT) and a transition from one of the big three in lighting to a company that enables other lighting manufacturers to deliver connected systems. Indeed, the company has indicated it will exit the luminaires business after having shed the LEDvance lamps operation. Now there are rumors that a suitor such as Bain Capital might take Osram private.

Moving to the SSL technology space, there has been a potential breakthrough to address the cost of OLED technology. The cost relative to LEDs, as well as trailing performance and longevity, have largely left the pleasing OLED uniformity on the sidelines in general lighting. It's been long believed that the ultimate way to reduce cost was via a transition to roll-to-roll manufacturing. Holland's Holst Centre and Germany's Fraunhofer FEP have demonstrated such a pilot production line.
