OptoThermal Technologies was formed by Ed Rodriguez 8 years ago as a unique collaboration with a team of experts in Boston and Los Angeles areas to focus on advanced LED lighting challenges, especially those relating to thermal management and driver considerations. Being pragmatic but yet able to think “outside the box”, are key criteria for team members.
Collaborative team members, before setting out on their own, have had substantial senior level-experience in major companies, designing/making state of the art products, with manufacturing cost a constant consideration.
Ed has continually been in power semiconductor, power supply and lighting related technical disciplines for over 40 years as an engineer, major company product mgr, and then founder/CEO of two successful high tech firms. He has 29 issued patents, with 6 more pending, and many dozens of tech papers and feature articles.
