Osram Optos Extremely Low-Profile Synios E4014 LEDs Makes It Easier To Implement Design Ideas

Compact mid-power LED from Osram Opto Semiconductors is ideal for injecting light into light guides The low-profile rectangular shape of the new Synios E4014 from Osram Opto Semiconductors enables the light from this LED to be injected into light guides so that a wide range of design ideas can turned into reality. These mid-power light emitting diodes also have an impressively robust plastic package, a particularly uniform distribution of light and an excellent price performance ratio. The LEDs are intended primarily for visually enhancing "white goods" and for lighting systems in vehicles and displays.

The extremely low height of the Synios of only 0.57 mm and its footprint of 4 mm x 1.4 mm provide the ideal basis for low-profile elongated luminaire and lighting designs – such as ones for backlighting displays. The LEDs are not equipped with a lens so they can easily be used for injecting light into light guides. The new E4014 opens up a whole range of design-oriented lighting solutions, such as integration in the glass shelving in refrigerators and other white goods, car interior lighting, and strip lighting on the floors of buses and trains.

"Refrigerators and washing machines are not exactly renowned for their exciting designs. The new Synios is ideal for enhancing their looks and even meeting high requirements in terms of lighting design. For similar lighting tasks, but at a lower performance level, we already have the Topled E3014 in our portfolio", said Volker Mertens, Marketing LED at Osram Opto Semiconductors.

Where each of the two light emitting diodes is used depends on the requirements of the particular application. If brightness and color fidelity are needed then Synios at 41 lm and a color rendering index (CRI) of 80 is the right choice. If brightness is not as important then the Topled with 7.3 lm at 20 mA is ideal.

The color temperatures of Synios are between 4000 and 5000 K and can therefore be tailored perfectly to the particular application. The robust plastic package is one of the benefits of the new Synios in addition to the extremely uniform distribution of light, high efficiency, excellent flexibility and long life of around 50,000 hours. In view of the intended applications, the ESD stability is 5 kilovolts (kV).
