Lumileds today revealed its highest flux density LED yet, the LUXEON V. Redefining the possibilities of light in a compact 4.0 mm x 4.0 mm footprint, LUXEON V can be driven harder than other LEDs in its class due to revolutionary new die and packaging technologies. LUXEON V produces more than 1,700 lumens at 5700K and 70 CRI (4.8 A) – 50% higher output than competing LEDs. “LUXEON V enables fixture designs that were previously unattainable for stadium and area lighting, torch and other portables because of the unique combination of high efficacy at high drive current with extremely low thermal resistance and optimized radiation pattern,” said Kathleen Hartnett, Senior Director, Product Marketing at Lumileds.
LUXEON V LEDs leverage the strengths of Lumileds next generation Patterned Sapphire Substrate (PSS) Chip Scale Packaging (CSP) technology— high efficacy at high drive currents, higher max drive current and higher lm/mm2. The nominal drive current is 1.4 A and the LEDs may be driven at up to 4.8 A – 60% higher than competing emitters. With the lowest thermal resistance in the industry of 0.8 K/W, designers can use smaller heat sinks for sleeker, more compact fixtures. LUXEON V LEDs feature a standard 3-stripe footprint for ease of design and assembly and is offered in a range of CCTs including 3000K to 6500K.
