Philips Lumileds Announces Breakthrough in Light Output and Temperature Stability

SAN JOSE, CA — Philips Lumileds today announced immediate availability of its breakthrough LUXEON Rebel phosphor converted amber (PC Amber) LED. The new LUXEON Rebel sets performance standards for color stability and light output performance.

Users will see 2-5 times more light output and dramatically less color shift compared to typical amber LEDs. LUXEON Rebel PC Amber delivers typical flux of 70 lumens at 350mA. This performance enables solution and application providers to reduce the number of LEDs used, the cost per lumen, overall system costs, and simplify the solution manufacturing process.

“The number and breadth of applications that require amber LEDs is tremendous,” said Frank Harder, VP of Product Marketing at Philips Lumileds. “Markets including automotive, entertainment, roadway, signaling, and many others use amber LEDs. With better efficiency and more light output, LUXEON Rebel PC amber makes it that much easier to reduce energy consumption with an environmentally friendly product.”

There are many applications that have not switched from conventional incandescent lamps to LEDs because they didn’t produce enough light and couldn’t operate effectively at higher temperatures. With the advances provided by LUXEON Rebel PC Amber, yellow traffic signals will be converted, warning lights and beacons on vehicles and obstructions will switch and entertainment applications will adopt the new LEDs.
Automotive applications, such as those for braking and signaling, use significant numbers of amber LEDs. With LUXEON Rebel PC Amber, manufacturers will be able to use fewer LEDs and lower other component costs because of the improved light output and particularly the stable color over temperature, something that has been problematic for many auto manufacturers. Philips Lumileds expects full automotive qualification later this year.
Complete specifications and details are published in the LUXEON Rebel PC Amber Product Brief.
