Luminus Announces the XNOVA Cube™ Tiny 1W SMD LED with Extremely Wide Emission Angle

Luminus Devices, Inc., a global manufacturer of high-performance LEDs and solid-state light sources, announced today the launch of the XNOVA Cube, an innovative 1 watt SMD LED with a 170 degree viewing angle, which provides designers with the ability to improve system efficacy, reduce cost, and simplify omnidirectional products. Unlike traditional mid-power LEDs, which were originally designed for LCD backlighting, the XNOVA cube is engineered specifically for illumination applications with high quality of light requirements, has the industry's widest viewing angle, emits more light than any midpower LED, and delivers all this from a compact 1.9 by 1.9mm package.

"The XNOVA Cube has opened-up new design options for our customers in the highly competitive panel lighting, linear and omnidirectional lamp markets," said Jim Miller, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Luminus. "They are able to reduce LED count by as much as 30% and at the same time cut power consumption by 10%, which enables further cost reductions in drivers, thermal systems, and optical components."

Luminus Devices will be showing their XNOVA illumination product line at the Hong Kong International Lighting Fair, October 27-30, 2014.
