Illumitex Unveils Aduro™ Series of High Power LEDs

Illumitex, Inc., a developer of revolutionary high-brightness light emitting diodes (LEDs), today revealed its first breakthrough product line, the Aduro™ series of packaged LEDs.

The Aduro series transforms LED lighting design by emitting uniform, narrow-beam white light without the need for expensive, inefficient secondary optics. Based in Austin, Texas, with strong backing from world-renowned investors such as New Enterprise Associates, Illumitex is changing the way lighting is envisioned by enabling the most efficient and cost-effective LED lighting solutions inthe world.

“What Illumitex has achieved is a fundamental breakthrough in delivering the most usable lumens to the task surface, thus providing unrivaled overall lighting system efficiency," said Matt Thomas, CEO of Illumitex. "We have reinvented the basic die and package structure to create the industry’s most optically advanced LED. Our technology allows us to deliver perfectly uniform light exactly where the customer wants it.”

LEDworks, an Illumitex customer headquartered in Singapore, is currently leading a major lighting upgrade using Aduro-enabled lighting fixtures. “Illumitex has developed the most efficient and cost-effective LED lighting solution on the market,” said Philip Mak, CEO of LEDworks. “We are using Illumitex LEDs to create the industry’s highest performing lighting fixtures. The Aduro product line represents a huge leap forward in light quality. We view this installation as the first of many collaborations.”

Until now, traditional LED manufacturers have used a basic dome optic in an attempt to control the light output from the package. However, this has forced fixture manufacturers to utilize costly, inefficient secondary optical lenses and reflectors. Illumitex solves this problem with a breakthrough approach to light extraction that eliminates the cost and energy efficiency issues associated with secondary optics. The Illumitex solution results in a highly efficient and uniform distribution pattern at the beam angle of the customer’s choice.

Illumitex's Aduro LEDs are available in 4-die and 16-die arrays, and the products are offered in cool, warm and neutral white light with radiation patterns of 10, 20 and 30 degree beam half-angles. Complete data sheets for the Aduro product line are available at
