LED Lighting Fixtures Receives First Patent

Morrisville, NC, May 11, 2007 - LED Lighting Fixtures, Inc. (LLF) today announced that the U.S. Patent Office has issued LLF’s first patent # 7,213,940. The ‘940 patent titled Lighting Device and Lighting Method, covers a unique approach for LEDs to create white light. The LED industry typically produces white light by either coating true blue LEDs with a YAG phosphor or combining red, green and blue LEDs. LLF uses a new and distinctive approach described in the ‘940 patent to deliver the high efficacy and excellent color quality found in all of LLF’s products.

Tony van de Ven, an LLF founder and co-inventor, said, “The ‘940 patent covers our core technology and we are thrilled that our unique methods are now protected in the United States. Our approach to white light is very elegant and allows us to use any LED chip source or package available in the industry. LLF’s technology will deliver the first high volume, energy efficient lighting products to the market and our fixtures should outperform all conventional sources, including compact fluorescent bulbs.”

LLF is demonstrating its LR6 products and a new four-inch downlight product called LR4 at the 2007 Lightfair International Trade Show held at the Javits Convention Center in New York City beginning today through May 10, 2007 in booth number 2921. LLF is also displaying two new commercial prototype lights at Lightfair 2007. The first is a high output recessed downlight that delivers over 1,500 lumens. The second is a recessed two foot by two foot architectural luminaire that produces over 3,500 lumens. Both of these designs are targeted to replace existing fluorescent troffer fixtures that serve as a standard for commercial lighting. LLF currently uses XRE LEDs manufactured by Cree, Inc. (NASDAQ:CREE) for its products. LLF has over 50 additional patents pending in the United States and subsequent patent filings worldwide. L i g h t R e i n v e n t e d .TM
