Luminus Devices combined proprietary processes, new specialty materials and assembly equipment to achieve the thermal reduction. The thermal manangement improvement results in up to 20% higher brightness levels, while maintaining current reliability during operation. It also simplifies system-level design.
These higher-brightness LED chips will be used in applications such as projection displays, said Arvind Baliga, VP of engineering at Luminus Devices, where the chips can help shrink projector size and cost. Other possible applications include high-brightness wash lights and spot lights for entertainment.
Luminus is currently sampling products based on this new technology; production quantities will be available next quarter.
