  • Patent number: 12007102
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed towards an LED based trimless recessed light fixture wherein the outermost diffuser lens of the recessed fixture provides illumination and extends outward covering the entire ceiling aperture. No additional decorative trim elements or baffles are required and the diffuser lens both illuminates and covers the ceiling aperture to provide a smooth illuminated unitary appearance. This outermost diffuser lens is illuminated from above by an illumination system which includes a ring support on which the LEDs may be mounted, along with an optical stack which collects light output from the LEDs and both illuminates and redirects the light through the outermost diffuser lens. This outermost diffuser lens provides appearance of smooth continuous illumination output along its entire surface and while also covering aperture edges formed in the ceiling for the recessed fixture.

  • Patent number: 9157624
    Abstract: A modular LED light bulb is presented. The bulb comprises a bulb envelope and a removable screw base. A power supply within the bulb envelope connects to an electrolytic capacitor within the screw base. When the electrolytic capacitor in the screw base requires replacement, the screw base is detached from the bulb envelope, the depleted electrolytic capacitor is discarded, and a new electrolytic capacitor is connected to the power supply. The various embodiments increase the useful life of the LED light bulb. In another aspect, the screw base may be adapted to accept swappable modules to provide the light bulb with additional functionality. The swappable modules may provide the light bulb with wireless control and motion sensing.
