Rich document Lumileds Unveils Luxeon Flash 9X with Spectral Pure Technology for Flagship Smartphones
Lumileds today reasserted its market leading position in camera flash LEDs while at Mobile World Congress by introducing the Luxeon Flash 9X with Spectral Pure Technology LED that produces photos with the finest color quality. Noted for its small form factor (1.4 x 1.4 mm chip scale package), this robust LED is ideally suited to produce photos with vivid colors including the most realistic skin tones captured on any smart phone. "The improved picture quality with Spectral Pure Technology is stunning when compared side-by-side with photos captured at 80 CRI, the former industry standard. Pictures taken with LEDs supported by Spectral Pure Technology have richer colors and facial tones appear more attractive than before," said Thierry De Smet, Director of Product Marketing at Lumileds.

Rich document Materials, Manufacturing and Technologies for Designing Passive Cooling Devices
Until recently, incandescent bulbs and fluorescent lights were the dominant light sources. Today it’s the energy efficient, durable and, in the meantime, cost effective, LED. But to achieve these attributes appropriate cooling is still necessary and due to progress over the last few years the need for active cooling solutions is limited to a few high power applications as long as the material and technology is carefully chosen. John Broadbent, Managing Director at Columbia-Staver Ltd., describes the different technologies and materials and gives practical advice on how to find the right solution for an application.
