Bench Talk for Design Engineers | The Official Blog of Mouser Electronics

Light of Day Paul Golata

So why start a blog now?

With my new blog, Light & Illumination, I will be seeking to explore contemporary technology and product issues related to LEDs and illumination. My aim is to assist the design engineering community through active and ongoing dialogue regarding the industry’s mission to impact our world through improved methods of incorporating LED technology. I endeavor to serve this mission by providing some personal knowledge, the resources of Mouser Electronics, and the resources of manufacturers throughout the world.

But who am I?

My name is Paul Golata and I am an engineer, in other words a problem-solver. I work at Mouser Electronics as a Technology Specialist focused on the area of Lighting. In this role I stay busy attempting to keep up with the latest technologies and product advancements.

As I see, hear, and learn about new and exciting developments in solid-state lighting I’ll be posting my observations here. I hope that they help ‘illuminate’ you to some cool and interesting ideas.

As in most things in life, it is more enjoyable to do things with friends, colleagues, and like-minded associates. As we go through this process I welcome your participation with suggestions, input, and comments. I am sure that I have much more to learn from others than I could ever possibly contribute. Feel free to use the comments section of the blog for this. To start with, maybe you could indicate your particular interests in LEDs and illumination; I can shape topics according to readers’ interests.

I can now breathe a sigh of relief!

My first blog is now ready for the ‘light’ of day and the eyes of all.
