| Cree Introduces Higher Brightness Color LEDs in XP Footprint|
May 22, 2013...Cree, Inc. of Durham, North Carolina USA, has announced commercial
availability of XLamp® XP-E2 color LEDs. According to Cree, the new XP-E2 color
LEDs deliver up to 88 percent higher maximum light output compared to
alternative high-power color LEDs. Cree says that this higher maximum light
output enables lighting manufacturers to more cost-effectively address a wide
spectrum of applications such as architectural, vehicle and display lighting.
Cree's new XLamp XP-E2 color LEDs are available in red,...Verticle Debuts UV LED Chip on Cu Substrate
May 15, 2013...Verticle, an LED chip maker in Silicon Valley with production in Korea, has
come out with a hexagonally shaped UV-LED on a copper substrate that can be
driven at high current. The chip employs what the company calls Chemical Chip
Separation Technology between the Cu substrate and the GaN-based UV-LED.
Verticle points out that despite their numerous advantages UV LEDs tend to have
lower optical power due to lower internal quantum efficiency (IQE) compared to
blue...Vishay Intertechnology Introduces 850 nm and 940 nm IR Emitters and Silicon PIN Photodiode for Infrared Touch Panels
May 14, 2013...Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. of Malvern, Pennsylvania USA, has introduced two new high-speed 850 nm and 940 nm infrared emitters and a package-matched high-speed silicon PIN photodiode with high radiant sensitivity from 780 nm to 1050 nm. The VSMG10850, VSMB10940, and VEMD10940F offer an ultra-wide ± 75° angle of half intensity in a compact side-view surface-mount package measuring 3 mm by 2 mm and a height of only 1 mm.
The IR...Philips Offers Luxeon 3535 2D, a 2-Die Packaged LED
May 7, 2013...Philips Lumileds introduced the LUXEON 3535 2D. Combining two LED chips into a single package, Lumileds states the new package enables a reduction in LED count by 50% in retrofit
lamps, consumer downlights and diffuse industrial lamps. The Luxeon 3535 2D
achieves 140 lm/W efficiency for cool white light at 4000K and minimum 80
“This is an exciting breakthrough, because lighting designers can
take advantage of a high lumen package with high...Everlight Expands 5630 Mid-Power LED Portfolio
May 2, 2013...Everlight Electronics based in Shulin, New Taipei City, Taiwan, introduced
the ultra-thin 5630D mid power LED series. The 5630D mid power LED series (part number 62-217D) is especially suited for LED light bars, standard and
omni-directional LED light bulbs, and LED high power bulbs.
Everlight's 62-217D comes in a standard 5630 package in a 0.5W (150mA)
version for 40/60W bulb retrofits and a 0.2W (60mA) version that is suited for
light bars. Both white top-view...Luminus Devices to Supply Big Chip LEDs for Vision X Lighting’s Long Throw Spot Lighting Applications
April 30, 2013...Luminus Devices, Inc. a maker of big chip LEDs and Vision X Lighting
announced a strategic partnership to develop and produce LED technology for
lighting applications that are currently dominated by High Intensity Discharge
(HID) lamp technology. The companies expect that the collaboration between
Luminus, a producer of high brightness LEDs, and Vision X Lighting, a supplier
of aftermarket automotive lighting fixtures, will create a new class of LED
lighting products with the power and punch...Osram Opto Semiconductors Releases New Sensor/Emitter for Smartphones
April 25, 2013...Osram Opto Semiconductors has added a very effective and low power consuming
sensor to its portfolio of proximity and ambient light sensors. The company
says that the compact SFH 7776 sensor registers the ambient brightness even
behind dark smartphone covers and prevents unintentional responses from the
touch screen during telephone calls. The company contends that this makes it
even easier for smartphone designers to control the backlighting and touch
functions of displays.
The digital SFH 7776 sensor...Osram Opto Semiconductors Now Offering Duris P 5 mid-power LEDs in Color
April 25, 2013...Osram Opto Semiconductors, has come out with five color new versions of the
Duris P 5 mid-power LEDs. Like the white versions, the new color versions are
said to have high luminous efficacy from a compact form factor. The LEDs are
ideal for architecture lighting and for hotels and restaurants.
The five color versions of Duris P 5 are: “deep blue” (450 nm),
“blue” (470 nm), “true green” (528 nm),
“yellow” (590 nm) and “red” (615...
