Philips Introduces LUXEON Z, Industry’s Smallest Power LED with Highest Lumen Density

San Jose, CA — At a size that is 80% smaller than traditional power LED, the new LUXEON Z offering from Philips Lumileds is the company’s smallest LED package to date. With a total footprint of just 2.2 square millimeters and high lumen output across a full spectrum of colors from 440-670 nanometers, including white, the LUXEON Z offers luminaire designers the industry’s highest commercially available lumen density. In addition, the ultra-compact, non- encapsulated package of the LUXEON Z gives designers new flexibility in packaging and optical designs, helping to push the boundaries of next generation luminaire design.

The new LUXEON Z will allow for integrated approaches that break with today’s paradigms in luminaire development. Unlike other products on the market, the LUXEON Z goes beyond the constraints of a typical 2x2 multi-chip package to allow designers the ability to create specialized 2x2, 3x2 or 6x1 mono-color or multi-color luminaires. With this breakthrough, configurations are virtually limitless, and with the ability to mount as many as 250 of the high-lumen LUXEON Z in one square-inch, designers can reach new levels in lumen densities.

Simplifying development of products such as wall-washers, moving head entertainment spotlights, and even remote phosphor applications, the LUXEON Z will also give engineers in the entertainment, architectural and specialty lighting segments, a modular approach to developing products. Moreover, the non- encapsulated chips are more readily adaptable to custom optics, eliminating the need for complex, inefficient secondary lenses. The company expects that a full line of semi-custom optics will also be available in the near future.

“With the LUXEON Z, Philips Lumileds has once again reinforced its commitment to LED innovation by listening to customers and giving them the ability to create more variations of multi-chip color arrays that can take advantage of custom optics,” said Rahul Bammi, VP of Product Management at Philips Lumileds. “By continuing to push the boundaries of technology with the smallest high-lumen LED package available, we are really enabling our customers to push the boundaries of luminaire development.”
