Nichia Launches World's First 2-in-1 Tunable White, Single LES, Mid-Power 3030 LED

Nichia, the leader in and inventor of the high-brightness LED, announces its game-changing 2-in-1 tunable white LED. This is the industry's first tunable white LED in a mid-power 3030 package with a single light emitting surface (LES). Targeting most lighting applications, the technology provides luminaire manufacturers with a host of benefits ranging from new technology and design features to improved factory operations and inventory positions.

Nichia's proprietary 2-in-1 LED technology also allows for higher colour quality, in some cases up to ~90 CRI, in the popular CCT regions as standard; achieved with a negligible loss of performance vs. standard CRI LEDs. This technology allows customers and the industry to focus on the benefits of the light instead of just energy savings, which already far surpass that of traditional technologies.

Shinichi (Steve) Yuasa, Director, Executive General Manager of LED Sales and Marketing at Nichia Corporation, said: "Nichia is again about to deliver a new standard in LED technology. This technology isn't a concept or prototype; this is a ground-breaking, game-changing reality which marks a significant advancement for luminaire manufacturers and the industry. Our 2-in-1 tunable white LED is well placed to become a benchmark LED technology for the majority of luminaires to employ, with the scope to more easily enable HCL designs in the future."

Nichia's 2-in-1 LED allows for elegant colour tuning and mixing because everything is under a single LES; this can be seen easily in edge-lit solutions. Currently, luminaire manufacturers must use two LEDs in side-by-side to achieve colour tuning. This creates unwanted optical distributions and visual effects while also limiting the lumen output that can be achieved in a single luminaire. Now, luminaire manufacturers can achieve the performance they need by integrating Nichia's 2-in-1 LED.

Nichia's 2-in-1 is now in production; samples and data are available from local Nichia offices. It will be displayed at LpS 2019 on booth N3-N5, alongside an interactive workshop on Human Centric Lighting (HCL). Additionally, Nichia is giving lectures and workshops on September 25 which discuss 'LED innovations for the improvement of HCL luminaires' and 'LED spectrum optimization for improvement of human performance and psychophysiological responses'.

Notes:
1. LpS 2019 is an LED symposium held in Bregenz, Austria from
    September 24 to 26
2. Nichia will also showcase its proprietary Optisolis™ and Vitasolis™
    technologies at LpS
3. Tunable white lighting refers to the ability to control a light source's
    color temperature output

About Nichia Corporation

Having 'Ever Researching for a Brighter World' as a motto, Nichia takes great pride in being the technology leader and world's largest LED manufacturer. Founded in 1956 as a speciality chemical producer, Nichia quickly became the leader in luminescent materials (phosphors). Nichia later developed and commercialised the first high-brightness blue LED in 1993 and the first white LED in 1996. Additional nitride-based LEDs in various colours were developed, including ultraviolet and visible laser diodes. Nichia believes that its products will remain at the forefront of energy-efficient solutions throughout the world for years to come. Nichia will continue to be a company that makes contributions to the world by evolving its original and unique technologies and 'Ever Researching for a Brighter World'.
