The multi-die in a single package gives you both the benefit of color mixing from the factory, as well as reducing the number of components of multi-device binning solutions. This can reduce total BOM cost, as well as other supply chain concerns such as inventory carrying costs for multiple parts versus just one.
Gary, I think still we had not found necessary application for Led’s in out day to day life. As of now applications are limited to LED TV and lightening system. Since LED’s are more powerful and energy consumptions are very low, we have to promote more equipment with LED.
"I think the article is just referring to some "modules" that Arrow provides which comes with a predetermined color mixing so that the manufacturing customer doesn't have to do the actual mixing."
One of the advantages is that specialized manufacturers such as Arrow would help in the creation of designs at relatively low cost and in time. All this will ease the supply chain challenges that LED lighting suppliers have to face.
I just learned that way how the LED's will be filtered at the manufacturing location. But I'm not able to understand how does the multichip technology or any other alternative technology could improve the binning process to reduce the cost. I would also request you to explain more details regarding how Arrow is helping the LED manufacturers to improve the yield.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
