Lextar to Make A Debut of its Chip Array COB and 150 lm/W LED Packaging Products

Lextar debuts its new Chip Array COB technology and high efficiency (up to 150 lm/W) LED packaging products. Both are presented at Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition and LED Lighting Taiwan in June.

COB (Chip on Board):
Lextar exhibits a series of LED components including COB and LED package. In terms of COB, the newly developed Chip Array COB technology employs exclusive mechanical design and unique material for improved cost.    With a 15-20% more efficient COB the Chip Array COB features a luminous efficiency up to 150 lm/W and a 40% total cost reduction for customers’ LED lighting solutions.  The 6 and 12 watts exhibits are accompanied with a relevant driver solution for LED bulb, downlight, light tubes and various applications.  In addition to the new technology, Lextar will exhibit a series of COB ranging from 4 to 70 watts, merit high color rendering index (CRI >80) and a luminous efficiency up to 95 lm/W for warm-white color temperature.

LED Package:
In LED package technology, Lextar announces its 3014 and 5630 packaging models with the high efficiency of 150 lm/W. The excellence of this LED series comes from brightness improvements and enhancements throughout the in-house R&D and production process from epitaxial to chip to packaging. Lextar’s high efficiency technology demonstrates its vertical integration strength, and can compare with the top tier LED makers.  This high-efficiency product can be applied to bulbs and light tubes at lower costs as fewer LED are required by increased brightness.

The Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition is the second largest lighting devices exhibition in Asia. It has been held for 16 years and this is the second time that Lextar has a presence there. The exhibition features very extensive contents: from LED technology, professional lighting, light source, lighting control system and production equipment and instruments for lighting devices. There were more than 2000 exhibitors from some 110 countries in last year’s show. It is expected that number of both exhibitors and visitors will soar this year as the LED industry is in the global spotlight as a result of the trend of environment protection and energy saving as well as mandates imposed by the regulations of individual countries.
