Lumileds Sets New Standards for Mid Power Range LEDs

Rahul Bammi, Lumileds Vice President Marketing and Product Management and Matt Everett, Lumileds Senior Director Mid Power Products discussed their new Mid Power March product launches with Siegfried Luger, publisher of LED professional. This article covers the features of these new product lines.

Lumileds has made big efforts to develop and customize their new and extended mid power product family for the business segments General Illumination, Automotive, Flash and Display. Their development was mainly driven by the intention to reach the highest efficacy values, a well defined product portfolio for all footprints, custom and standard LED on board solutions, and the highest robustness/reliability targets.

“Lumileds consequently is designing LEDs specifically to certain applications.“ Rahul Bammi

LUXEON 3535L HE PLUS: Industry Leading Efficacy

  • Product architecture is ideal for high efficacy applications
  • Enables LED count reduction due to dramatic efficiency improvement on each LED
  • Familiar 3535L package and footprint, with same 3535L Line advantages in reliability and lifetime, leveraging existing data
  • 4,000K, 80CRI, 52 lm typical, 186 lm/W @ 100 mA; 34 lm, 194 lm/W @65mA
  • Tested at 100 mA, 1/7th color binning
  • Initial CRI & CCTs target indoor commercial applications (2700/4000/6500K, 80 CRI)

LUXEON 2835: Well Defined Product Family with a Common Footprint

  • Available in two different light output ranges (2835C & 2835E) with multiple voltage options to provide optimized performance for different application requirements
  • Specialized color targeting per application
  • Industry’s best maximum current (up to 240mA) provides extra headroom for demanding applications
  • Micro color binning enables easy color kitting to create 3, 4 & 5-step MacAdam ellipse
  • With an industry standard footprint, the LUXEON 2835 is the perfect upgrade for other 2835 products and other common mid power offerings

LUXEON HR30: Most Robust and Reliable Mid Power LEDs

  • Specifically designed and tested for use in the most demanding environments
  • Quad Flat No-leads package with industry-best materials
  • Superior Reliability and Lifetime, specifically designed for harsh conditions of Outdoor and Industrial applications
    • To date, no issues with reliability testing at 4000hrs at max current (240mA) and Tc= 125°C
    • Junction Temperature >160°C!
    • >95% lumen maintenance and <2.5% Vf shift at 4000 hours at these extreme conditions
    • Target lifetime in excess of 100khrs at 150mA, 105°C
    • Resistance to harsh chemical environments, especially sulfur and chlorine environments

“One of the interesting things about Lumileds’ products overall is the dedication to enabling high current densities. Lumileds’ parts can be driven to the maximum conditions. For example some mid power parts can be operated over 1 Watt for high lumen output applications. The borders for mid- and high- power LEDs are beginning to blur.“ Matt Everett
