> This may be obvious, but anyone making such a device today would be well advised to use LED strips instead. We just upgraded the lighting in my wife’s office/craft room with an LED panel light. It’s around 4’x1’x1” and puts out 4000 lumens - quite bright and enough to fill the entire room with task level lighting. You could certainly make the equivalent of a T8 bulb out of modern high output LEDs and they’d be able to be switched on and off solid-state and they wouldn’t suffer from frequent switching. Heck, you could probably multiplex them the same way you multiplex smaller LED displays and it would still work.
You can buy, made by Philips, a direct replacement LED unit that will
install in place of the flourescent tube. Looks like a tube, just has
lots of LED inside.
