Lumileds RGBW Module Achieves Breakthrough Flux and Color Control

Lumileds RGBW Module Achieves Breakthrough Flux and Color Control Lumileds, a global leader in innovative lighting solutions, today introduced the Luxeon MultiColor Module 2.5 W, a compact RGBW module that produces leading flux and achieves exact color points in architectural and general outdoor lighting applications. The 4-in-1 module simplifies system design by combining red, green, blue and white emitters in a compact 5050 footprint, PLCC package. "We designed a barrier between the color and white emitter to eliminate the problem of crosstalk, allowing designers to consistently achieve the exact color point they are targeting," said Jennifer Holland, Product Line Director at Lumileds. Crosstalk can occur when a direct LED excites the phosphor in a neighboring white LED, altering the emitted color. Read more »
