LumiLeds Lighting Produces 17 Lumen White LED
Products Available in Upcoming LuxeonTM Product Family
San Jose, Calif. Feb. 26, 2001
LumiLeds Lighting, the leader in high flux, high powered LED (light emitting diode) technology, today announced it has demonstrated a single white LED with output of seventeen lumens. This is four times more white light output than the best known white LED. This device operates at 350mA and 3.2Vf.
This is a significant breakthrough as it is the first demonstrated single point white LED light source that is in the light output range required for general lighting- such as map lights, airplane reading lights and emergency lighting. A well-controlled single point light source allows lighting designers to design sleek, compact fixtures and couple the light to a single optic in the light fixture. This is not possible with traditional low power 5mm white LEDs, due to the multiple LEDs required, leading to a wasteful loss of light and a bulky, clumsy design.
LumiLeds LuxeonTM technology offers a unique platform for these breakthroughs- combining light extraction techniques, cutting-edge LED technology, and high power capabilities.
