Soraa Introduces GaN on GaN™ Gen3 LEDs for Unmatched Efficiency and Brightness, Full-Visible-Spectrum Color and Whiteness Rendering

Soraa, the world leader in GaN on GaN™ LED technology, announced today the world’s most efficient LED, which it will integrate into the market’s first full-visible-spectrum, large form factor lamps. Soraa’s third generation (Gen3) GaN on GaN™ LED achieves world-record setting wall-plug-efficiency, outperforming the nearest competitor by 20% at normal operating conditions. In just one year, Soraa has achieved a remarkable 30% increase in white lumen per watt (lm/W) efficiency over its prior generation LED, setting a pace of technology evolution unrivalled in the LED industry. Soraa’s Gen3 LED will be available in the second quarter of this year in a variety of product offerings: modules, large form factor PAR and AR lamps, and MR16 lamps.

Soraa’s full-visible-spectrum PAR30L lamp, powered by its Gen3 LED, will lead the market not only in light output, but also in color and whiteness rendering; at CRI-95 and R9-95 it will achieve center-beam intensity (CBCP) of 28,250cd at 8° beam angle, 10% higher than the CRI-85 offering of the nearest competitor. Soraa’s large form factor lamps will feature all the signature elements of light quality that its customers are accustomed to: natural and accurate rendering of colors and whiteness, perfectly uniform beams of exceptionally high intensity, and clear single shadows.

“Soraa’s Gen3 GaN on GaN™ LED package is a major milestone for the LED industry and a truly disruptive innovation. We have achieved a 30% lm/W efficiency improvement over our previous generation white LEDs, and what’s amazing is that we expect to repeat these significant year-over-year performance gains in the future,” said Jeff Parker, CEO of Soraa.

Soraa has brought a culture of innovation and rapid technology development to the LED lighting industry with its GaN on GaN™ LED technology. The company’s Gen3 LED runs at 75% wall-plug-efficiency at a current density of 35A/cm² and a junction temperature of 85°C, efficiency levels that are out of reach for other LED manufacturers. Soraa leverages the properties of the native GaN substrate and a chip-on-board LED package design to create a very robust, single point source that enables excellent beam control. And with a proprietary three-phosphor combination, Soraa’s Gen3 LED emits full-visible-spectrum light (all the colors of the rainbow, including violet), which excites optical brightening agents and perfectly renders whiteness as well as colors.

Soraa will display its new full-visible-spectrum large lamp products at Light + Building in Frankfurt, Germany (March 30-April 4, booth# 4.1 B55).
